Save yourself from the disastrous diseases. Go for the exercises.

I have never seen my grandparents going to the gym, yet they are in good health. I questioned them about the secret that has kept them healthy for such a long period. They only say that it is because of the indirect physical exercises that they have been doing. Today because of the advancement in technology, we have so many facilities available which hardly let us do any sort of physical work on our own. (P.S -They are now facing difficulty in maintaining their health.) Earlier they did not have any gyms (P.S- Now they are thinking of joining one). They only used to do the cardio exercises and that too in an indirect manner. That is when I thought of sharing the benefits of cardio exercises with everyone.
