  3. 3. Mental benefits:• Helps you to deal with stress and tension• Improves self-confidence• Increases motivation• Gives you something to aim for - a challenge
  4. 4. Social Benefits:• Helps you meet new people and make friends• Improves your teamwork and cooperation• The amount of exercise you do will vary depending on your physical fitness and your long- term goals. For example, if you have not exercised for a while or ever before, have been ill or are reaching middle age or older you need to start slowly. If your aim is to run a marathon you will need to do more training than someone who is aiming to walk down the road without getting out of breath.
  5. 5. Exercise Guidelines• Start gently and gradually increase the time and intensity of your exercise as it gets easier• Exercise often - 20 minutes three times a week is better than 60 minutes once a week• Dont overdo it - exercise shouldnt be painful or make you ill or overly tired afterwards.
