  • Building muscle- Want to be big and strong? Exercise strengthens and stretches muscles, making you stronger and more flexible, which comes in handy whether you're taking out the garbage or trying to win a limbo contest!
  • Strengthening bones- Exercise helps bones grow strong and even affects strength and height.
