    • more confidence and independence
    • more energy to do your everyday activities
    • less difficulty reducing or maintaining weight
    • more strength and endurance
    • increased flexibility and balance
    • more energy to participate in special events
    • improved feeling of well-being and a reduction in stress
    • better quality sleep
