When filling out a life insurance application, you'll be asked to provide information about the state of your health. The general rule is that the healthier you are, the lower your premiums will be. Of course, there are many aspects of health, and while we can't control preexisting medical conditions or our family medical history, we can control how much we exercise.
Exercise is indeed one of the factors that life insurance underwriters consider when calculating life insurance premiums. However, are there some exercises considered "healthier" than others? You bet.
