Why Exercise Is Crucial for Those with Cystic Fibrosis

Ask yourself these questions to help decide what's right for you

The human body is made to be active and when you are inactive, it puts you at an increased risk for disability and diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. When deciding upon physical activity, it is necessary to ask yourself three questions:

  1. Will I like engaging in this type of physical activity and does it fit within my schedule?
  2. Will this type of physical activity connect me with my family and friends?
  3. Will this type of physical activity help me to build stronger muscles and bones, as well as to improve the health of my heart and lungs?
