Exercise and weight loss go hand in hand and contrary to popular belief; exercise is not a four letter word. Seriously. It isn’t. But it is a must if you want to lose weight, increase your flexibility, boost your metabolism, and increase your overall feeling of well-being.
But why? After all, if it is true that all you have to do is take in fewer calories than you burn, then why is getting up and moving so important?
There are a few reasons why exercise is important. First of all, the body was made to move. Just think about the construction of our bodies. How the muscles, ligaments, and bones all work together to perform smooth liquid movements. We are a pretty complex machine.
