Exercising lowers your risk for chronic disease

Do you know a caretaker who might be afraid of working out? Many people who are disabled or suffer from health problems have a fear of exercising. They’re afraid that exercise could cause further injury. However, exercising can lower the risk of chronic diseases. Health problems such as diabetes or heart diseases can be controlled through healthy dieting and exercising. Regardless of your condition, anyone can become active and fit.
