Lots of ways: Better fitness leads to better stamina, which leads to better performance. Better fitness leads to better blood flow, which means that the sexual organs are better supplied with blood and oxygen, which they need to function properly. Better fitness improves self image, which has a lot to do with how attractive others find you. The list goes on.

What is the role of fitness and exercise in the corporate world?

Dr. Janet Greenhut
Preventive Medicine 43 years experience
Fitness is important: Even if you exercise regularly, sitting all day can increase your risk of chronic disease. So it's important to get up and move throughout the day every 30-60 minutes. If you're interested in making fitness part of your corporate culture, talk to the hr manager or wellness director. You'll need to get buy-in from the execs and support from coworkers. But it'll benefit everyone.
