        <p>Hypertension is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality. Additionally, hypertension is associated with fatal complications and premature mortality. The primary prevention of hypertension has emerged as an essential global public health endeavour as the prevalence of hypertension continues to rise. It is frequently advised to engage in physical activity as a significant lifestyle change that may help prevent hypertension. Recent epidemiologic studies have shown a consistent, temporal, and dose-dependent link between exercise and the emergence of hypertension. Given that the positive benefits of exercise on blood pressure lowering have been thoroughly described in recent years, experimental data from interventional research has further proven a link between physical activity and hypertension. Studies presented in the literature strongly define the beneficial effects of exercise on the management and prevention of hypertension. Although the protective advantages of physical activity in high-risk individuals, the variables that may moderate the relationship between physical activity and hypertension, and the ideal prescription for hypertension prevention remain unanswered despite the overwhelming evidence available supporting a role for physical activity in the prevention of hypertension, necessitating the demand for further research, the purpose of this research is to review the available information about the beneficial effects of exercise on hypertensive patients.&#13;
