Regular, structured physical activity or exercise has been frequently reported to be a key contributor to managing one’s health including chronic diseases and conditions. The benefits of exercise are actively promoted but the undertaking of this activity by a range of populations still remains an issue of great concern throughout the world. The optimal exercise parameters (e.g., mode, intensity, duration, etc.) for different populations remains to be confirmed; however, there has been considerable advancement over the past 30 or so years. Several guidelines have been developed to assist with exercise management for health and disease but more investigations are needed to support patients, practitioners and researchers. This Special Issue aims to collate the new and flourishing evidence of the impact of exercise in managing chronic diseases/conditions. Further, it will provide an avenue for researchers and practitioners to engage with up to date and innovative practice. Novel studies of mechanisms, interventions, and populations are of particular interest and encouraged to advance our understanding and development of best, exercise practice for improved health
