Several recent studies have suggested associations between extreme exercise and certain adverse cardiovascular findings, such as atrial fibrillation and coronary artery disease. The study measured all-cause mortality relating to the benefits of fitness and exercise.

"We were particularly interested in the relationship between extremely high fitness and mortality" said Kyle Mandsager, M.D., an electrophysiology fellow at Cleveland Clinic and the lead author of the study. However, this study demonstrated that there is no limit to the benefits provided by exercise.

And most importantly, perhaps, Jaber also comments that the benefits of exercise appear to affect all ages and genders. Persons who did not exercise, they explain, had a 500 percent raised risk of death compared to those who exercised.

Comparing risk of being sedentary vs highest performing the risk is 3 times higher than smoking. For all other comorbidity subgroups there was no statistical difference in survival rates between the elite and high performers.
