Reel doing push-ups for exercise

Exercise, or a workout, was a physical activity practiced by many cultures to ensure their health and fitness. Exercise's benefits ranged from increasing growth to strengthening muscles and even increasing one's lifespan. A lack of exercise could result in health complications, like obesity, of which the Pakleds could be an example.

In 2268, Doctor Leonard McCoy dismissed the fountain of youth properties of the planet Omega IV, saying a good diet and plenty of exercise would have an even better effect. (TOS: "The Omega Glory")
