Exercise is a fundamental part of human nature.  Although humans have been exercising for thousands of years,  many people today are excluding this cardinal activity from their daily routine.  Numerous studies show that exercise plays a key role in our everyday well-being, aids in the prevention of a myriad of diseases and can be used as a form of alternative medicine after the onset of disease.  In addition, other lifestyle choices (sleep, diet, etc.) are important factors in maintaining a health body.
