Exercise is an epigenetic stimulus. This means that it can affect your genes in a powerful and positive way.

The body is meant to exercise. It even has over ten million sweat glands that act as its air conditioner. This helps us adapt to heat during exercise and allows the body to cool down.

Exercise activates a lot of different repair systems in the body. But, your results with exercise will depend on your rest and recovery. If you overtrain, you won’t experience many benefits.
