Regular exercise is critical for men’s health. Job stress, relationships, family commitments and social engagements are best managed when we have a healthy release and stay active. Developing a well-balanced workout schedule of cardio, group classes, yoga and strength training will improve men’s health as well as have a positive influence on their body image, self-confidence and overall outlook on life.
This November, Sky celebrates Movember: Movember is an annual fundraising event during November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. This organization encourages men to get active and bring fitness into their daily activities to prevent early death.
Men’s Top 5 Health Benefits from Regular Exercise:
