Experts say the No. 1 reason people don't exercise is perceived lack of time.

People don't view exercise or physical activity as important enough to schedule it within their day.

However, health experts stress that participation in regular physical activity can reap a realm of health benefits.

A recent survey in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found just 5 percent of American adults reported engaging in vigorous physical activity, such as running or using cardiovascular exercise equipment, in the previous 24 hours.
