People with chronic diseases are often excluded from exercise programs. Participating in systematic exercise and physical activity programs can be very beneficial for their health. The low levels of cardiorespiratory capacity of these individuals affect their productivity in their daily lives as well as in the workplace. Lack of awareness of the benefits of exercising, but also fear of injuries or further burden of their health, leads to avoidance of exercise. This hypomotility leads to even greater cardiac and vascular dysfunction, further reduction of muscle mass, reduction of maximum oxygen uptake and therefore of their functional capacity, increase in body fat, shorter fatigue appearance resulting in poor quality of life. It is very important for people with chronic diseases to understand that the benefits of exercise outweigh the risks posed during exercise. Prevent project is going to inform citizens on the benefits of exercise in health, guiding them for safe and effective participation in organized exercise programs.
