Exercise: What We Know

Exercise is good for you. Virtually all medical professionals would sign off on that proposition, and so would most of the rest of us, even at a time when some portion of the population rejects plenty of other health-related expertise, like calls for vaccinations.

Being physically active has been shown to decrease the risks of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and some cancers. It is known to combat anxiety and depression; strengthen bones and muscles; sharpen cognition; improve sleep and extend longevity.

  • Modern fitness is shaped by neoliberal ideas of the optimizable self, by consumer capitalism, by race and class privilege, and by gender norms.
  • The fitness industry has a history of exclusion, catering to middle- and upper-class white people with disposable income
