What Are the Benefits of Cardio-Aerobic Exercise?
The Cardiovascular System comprises the heart and the blood vessels through which blood is pumped and circulated through the body. Cardiovascular (cardio/aerobic) exercise aims to strengthen the heart and improve the respiratory system of the body during exercise. Note: Sedentary people are over 5 times more likely to die from heart disease than those who fit moderate levels of exercise into their daily routine. (US Framingham Study)
