In brief: It is Good!

Exercise has many cardiovascular benefits.
A regular exercise program has been shown to be part of a successful weight reduction program, improve cardiovascular function and help reduce hypertension and its ill effects. However, since blood pressure normally rises with exercise those with severe hypertension may need a graduated, supervised and monitored program to start.

In brief: It is good

While blood pressure can increase during exercise as the body needs more oxygen delivered to the tissues, regular exercise actually is associated with a decreased risk of hypertension and an improved blood pressure control.
One should start an exercise program slowly and build up over time.
