Being physically active helps control your weight. You gain weight when the calories you burn, including those burned during physical activity, are less than the calories you consume. Start slowly when you’re starting off your work out regimen. You can gradually increase your physical activity each week by a few minutes or with higher intensity. There are so many health benefits to attribute to working out regularly.
