Aerobic condition

Aerobic conditioning increases the duration that one can endure physical activity. It can help with heart disease[2], diabetes, anxiety and reduce cancer risk. It also has many non-medical benefits, such as improving mood, memory, brain function[1][3], alleviating fatigue and stabilizing sleeping patterns[5]. It can improve a person's health and general well-being immensely as well as reducing chance of cancer and extending your longevity[4][5].
