1 STRONGER BONES

Women who regularly strength-train or do weight-bearing cardio (walking, running, tennis, dancing, climbing stairs) can decrease their bone loss as they age.

2 BETTER MOODS

Exercise is one of the best ways to manage daily stress and feel more energized. So, go ahead, take a load off by going for a nice brisk walk.

3 BETTER SEX

It's true. Exercise improves female sexual arousal. (P.S. Men who exercise regularly are less prone to erectile dysfunction. Pass it on.)

4 YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN

The increased blood flow from exercise helps skin look more youthfully vibrant.

5 TO SET A GREAT EXAMPLE

Children learn from what we do - not what we say. The best way for moms to motivate their kids to get more exercise is to exercise more ourselves!
