This paper focused on benefits of physical fitness and exercise to pregnant women in Ekiti state. It has been proved through literature evidence that exercise can enhance easy and safe delivery for pregnant women. Yet, these days many pregnant women in Ekiti State suffer from discomfort, pains and chronic diseases, which could be linked to non-participation in exercise. This could be attributed to the perception and attitude of the pregnant women towards exercise. This has to do with their level of knowledge about benefits inherent in exercise participation to pregnant women.
