With the rapid technological change, most people are living an unhealthy lifestyle and consuming processed food. Additionally, most people spend time on their mobile phones instead of working on other activities such as exercise. Beginners should have at least 2 to 3 days of working out per week, and the intermediate should have 3 to 4 days of strength training. A set of stretching exercises is required after each workout. Approximately 3.9 million people aged 18 and above are diagnosed with diabetes in Malaysia. This means that 1 in 5 adults will be diagnosed with diabetes. The prevalence rate has increased from 13.4% in 2015 to 18.3% in 2019. Some of the main factors that can cause a person to acquire diabetes are obesity and consuming excessive amounts of food with high sugar levels. The two types of diabetes are type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes results in the body not producing insulin, whereas type 2 diabetes causes the body to not respond to insulin even though it produces insulin.
