Exercise is essential for good health. Medical research shows that the main difference between individuals of a normal weight and those who are overweight is the amount of calories the individual burns throughout the day. People who are overweight tend to have a more sedentary lifestyle.  In fact, the CDC and the Surgeon General Report estimates that more than 60% of adults don't get engage in the recommended amount of physical activity and approximately 25% don't exercise at all.

Physical activity has many physical, emotional

and economic benefits.
