Hidden Health Benefits of Exercise (Guest Blog Post) on PaleoFX.com

"Food is often the primary focus when it comes to the Paleo lifestyle, but as the great man Hippocrates once said, 'eating alone will not keep a man well; he must also take exercise'. This quote is as relevant today as it ever was.

Here are nine solid reasons as to how exercise makes you healthier."

Here's an excerpt of an article I wrote for Paleo FX on some of the lesser known facts about exercise and physical activity, read the whole post at the website here -> : http://www.paleofx.com/9-hidden-health-benefits-exercise/
