Fitness helps you feel better and have more energy for work and leisure time. When you stay active, you burn more calories, even when you're at rest. Staying fit can also help you manage your weight.

Improving your fitness is good for your heart, lungs, bones, muscles, and joints. It lowers your risk for falls, and can both prevent and treat heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and some cancers when combined with other healthy behaviors like healthy eating, stress management, and having social support.

Health Tips

Asthma is a treatable, reversible condition that affects more than 25 million people in the United States. Appropriate medication management for patients with asthma reduces the need for rescue medication—as well as ER visits and missed days of work or school. Talk to your doctor about an asthma action plan and take all your prescribed asthma medications.
