These days, I’m willing to bet that if you ask just about anyone in America over 12 years old- “do you believe that exercise is good for you?”– they’d probably say- “yes.”
Many people even understand some of the specific benefits of exercise, such as- better muscle, bone and joint health, reduced bodyfat, better heart, lung and brain function, better energy and mood, less pain, and a greater ability to be mobile and active.
Now, thanks to a new study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, we can all add one more benefit to our list of “why we should exercise regularly”- less risk of getting sick or dying from COVID-19.
The study was actually a systematic review of 16 broader studies that were performed all throughout the world, containing more than 1,800,000 participants. It showed that consistent and vigorous exercise improved the resiliency of the immune system to such a degree that researchers saw a “significant reduction” in the rates of sickness and death from COVID-19.

With all this in mind, ask yourself- “am I getting the right amount of proper exercise to get all these wonderful benefits?” If not, I encourage you to start as soon as possible.
Please pass this along to someone who you feel would benefit.
