Some people don’t exercise because they can’t. Most people don’t exercise because they choose not to. Everyone is busy, but life is full of choices and priorities. You can let your life dictate your schedule, or you can gain control. You can do the things that will make you less susceptible to health problems or roll the dice. There’s no guarantee that the workout warrior will live longer than the couch potato, but plenty of evidence exists that a good diet and plenty of exercise prolongs life and lessens the likelihood of heart disease, cancer, a variety of degenerative diseases, stroke and diabetes.
