Cardiovascular effeciency is also described as the capacity of the lungs ability to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide with the blood and the circulatory systems and to transport blood and nutrients to metabolically active tissues of sustained periods without undue fatigue. Benefits for cardio can be such as physiologic responses such as body fat utilization and peripheral vascular resistance. It also helps decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and insulin resistance.

There are reports of other great responses of the body by fitness and they are: cardiac and pulmanary rehabilitation, sleep disorder treatment, diabetic treatment, prenatal post-partum, renal dialysis conditioning, anxiety and depression managment programs.
