While some exercises are done to help tone and strengthen muscles, aerobic exercises are
done to improve the flow of oxygen in and out the body. Aerobic, as the dictionary defines it, means reliant on
oxygen. Aerobic exercises are done to help improve the breathing process, especially during long, tedious activity.
Sports, such as long distance running, basketball, biking and swimming, among others, need a high level of oxygen
flow in the body. Plenty of supply of oxygen is required to be able to complete and excel in activities such as the
one earlier mentioned.
Experts discovered that even if one is fit physically and possess the required muscular strength to do a certain
sport, there is still a problem when it comes to sustaining the energy level until the end of the activity. That is
when they realized the significance of enough oxygen supply that needs to be maintained in the body. With a higher
oxygen flow, an athlete will be able to carry on long, challenging activities. No matter how long the distance one
needs to complete or how much physical exertion is required, with a great supply of oxygen in the body, one will
surely be able to keep going.
With aerobic exercise being introduced, is there also an anaerobic exercise then? Yes. Indeed, there is. A
fitness exercise may be aerobic or anaerobic, so you may want to know how that program you are planning to enrol on

which also happens to be anaerobic. Trainers and physical fitness instructors must be able to know whether the
exercise they are guiding you on is aerobic or otherwise. You can also try to check online what the complete
benefits of certain exercises are. For one, the major difference between aerobics and anaerobics is the amount of
strength exerted for the entire duration of the activity and the amount of time the exercise has been completed.
Aerobic exercises are usually done for a longer period of time compared with anaerobic. However, the amount of
energy exerted at once is higher in anaerobic exercise. Anaerobics is usually done with one’s energy fully exerted
at the onset of the activity. On the other hand, though an aerobic exercise is done for a longer period, the energy
level is gradually increasing as the exercise is done, not exerted all at once.
You don’t really need to spend money on aerobic exercise programs. These exercises are not necessarily done in
the gym. Aerobics can also be done even at the comforts of your own home. With simple, regular execution of
aerobics, you will still be able to attain a sound, healthy and sexy body that can be done without the aid of
expensive, heavy equipments only found in the gym. The results are still the same. May it be done at home or in the
gym, aerobic exercise can still give one healthy and strong muscles, lungs, and heart essential for any
