It might not be easy, but your mind will be clearer, your heart stronger, your lungs better and best of all your clothes looser. Just overall better health – whether you are over weight or not you need exercise. Even the thinnest people out there need to get the heart pumpin. But if you are packing extra in the trunk, exercise is still the best way to take it off.
