Aside from curing hangovers, many ancient wise men knew that exercise was good for the mind, that a sound mind and a sound body were inextricably linked:

"It
is remarkable how ones wits are sharpened by physical
exercise."- Pliny the Younger

"It
is exercise alone that supports the spirits, and keeps
the mind in vigor."- Cicero

"We
can do nothing without the body, let us always take
care that it is in the best condition to sustain us."– Socrates
