In ancient Greece it was considered a citizen's duty to remain fit - both Hippocrates and Galen recommended exercise for health. Despite this it was not until the beginning of the 20th century that exercise to improve health was considered by the medical profession. By the first decade of the 21st century the massive benefits of exercise, not only in improving health but also as a therapeutic intervention, had become apparent.
