Why exercise?

Studies show that only about 17.5% of Canadians get enough regular physical activity, which means 82.5% of Canadians are at a higher risk of poor health outcomes. Being active can help you maintain a healthy body weight and reduce your risk of certain conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. If you're not a big fan of grueling workouts in the gym, rest assured that there are plenty of fun ways to stay fit year-round, with outdoor activities. And when you're having fun, you're more likely to stick with an exercise plan that's right for you! Even 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day will help improve and maintain your health.

There are many other reasons to be active throughout the year. Exercise can help you:

  • improve your muscle tone
  • relieve stress
  • improve your body image
  • increase your energy and concentration levels
  • protect your bones
  • improve your circulation
  • improve your digestive health
  • have fun and be social
