The human body is designed for natural exercise. If exercise can be approached as natural as brushing your teeth, it will not be perceived as a chore.
Hours at the gym are unnecessary. Increasing daily activities such as taking the stairs instead of taking the elevator, walking instead of driving etc. will render positive health impacts.
