Active exercise is any exercise in which a person must exert force to complete a move. The opposite of active exercise is a passive exercise, in which another person moves the client’s extremities to keep muscles from atrophying or better the client’s range of motion. One can use active exercise to improve one’s strength, flexibility, conditioning, and overall functional capacity.
