No matter who you are, an exercise and fitness regime will improve your well being. Research has shown that regular exercise invigorates metabolism, improves circulation, lengthens life expectancy, and boosts endorphin production (biochemicals in our bodies that help make us feel happy). Studies also show that people who regularly work out are generally more confident and more focused compared to people who don’t exercise. Adding regular exercise to your life will help you no matter who you are.
Those who are prepper minded have an additional reason to pursue fitness. In addition to making us healthier all around, exercise makes us better able to respond to an emergency. When responding to an emergency, we might be called upon to do some very physically intensive tasks. When your physical ability during an emergency counts, you don’t want to come up short.
