According to a new study featured on Science Daily, obese or overweight people aren’t the only ones who can benefit from regular exercise.

Researchers from the University of Missouri found that proper encouragement and motivational physical activity interventions may help normal-weight adults improve their cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF). This may then reduce their risks of developing chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

“Recommendations to be more active don't necessarily have to come from a fitness expert to improve CRF results and could easily come from a nurse or physician,” says researcher Jo-Ana Chase. “Also, these interventions don't have to be time consuming. A quick conversation with clinician appeared to be as effective as a more intensive intervention, such as a day-long seminar on the benefits of increased endurance activity.”
