HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Exercise is recommended for everyone. There are many advantages such as (1) improved heart function- the heart function in persons who are physically active is better than those who are not
(2) it would also assist in the loss of the abdominal fat that you stated that you want to lose
(3)exercise boosts or increases energy levels
(4) it improves mood
(5) it prevents or reduces the chances of developing some diseases such as high blood pressure , high cholesterol and diabetes
(6) it also promotes or helps with sleep

If you use the gym, then you can do weight lifting or other muscle strengthening exercises that would add muscle without reducing your weight.

In addition to the physical activity to lose the stomach fat, you would need to modify your diet. Increase your use of water, decrease the use of sodas and fruit juices, eat more fruits and vegetables, reduce your use of fried or fatty foods

I hope this helps
