She highlighted its positive effects on heart health, skin quality, and overall well-being, encouraging women not to be discouraged by initial challenges. “Exercise is a lifestyle that should be embraced daily,” she said. Mbali emphasized the need for patience and consistency in exercise routines, advising against quick discouragement. She emphasized the importance of maintaining a balanced diet alongside physical activity for optimal health outcomes.
