A little physical exercise always feels good. No matter how old you are and whatever your situation, sport is healthy on several levels.
The first and perhaps most obvious is that it makes us stronger and more resistant; this is necessary for bones and tendons. The second, and something more unknown, is how it influences our mood, releasing a series of hormones, also necessary.
But beyond the fact that a certain exercise is always positive, each sporting discipline has its own dynamics and therefore, it is better for certain personal experiences.
