The health benefits of exercise can add up to more than $200 a year, according to a new study from Boston University.
The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at the health and economic effects of exercise.
The authors found that exercise, particularly in the short term, can help to lower health care costs.
The study looked at spending by different groups of people for health care, and found that in terms of costs per person, exercise is one of the best ways to reduce health care expenditures.
“There is considerable evidence to support the concept that exercise is associated with improved health and lower health-related morbidity,” Dr. Michael Schumacher, lead author of the study, said in a statement.
“But this new study suggests that there are some other benefits to exercise that we haven’t yet identified.”
The researchers looked at five studies that looked at exercise as a way to reduce medical costs.
One of the studies looked at how exercise reduced medical costs for individuals who were overweight and obese, while another looked at those who exercised for more than 10 minutes per day.
The researchers found that those who performed regular exercise had higher costs than those who didn’t.
For example, a person who performed four to six hours of moderate-intensity exercise had $3,400 less in medical bills per year than a person whose exercise was limited to five minutes per week, the study found.
The next best thing was a three-hour exercise session, which cost $1,500 less than an hour of moderate intensity exercise.
This study also looked at physical activity by activity group.
The average person who exercised three hours a week, $1.65 per hour, was about $2,400 cheaper than someone who exercised four hours per week.
A person who did a little less exercise than three hours was $600 cheaper per year, compared to someone who did four hours a day, the researchers found.
“The key takeaway here is that exercise improves your health,” Schumachers said.
“We have to look at exercise at all levels of our lives.
We don’t just want to be able to walk to work, or eat dinner.
We also have to be exercising, and it improves our health.”
