who exercise regularly and maintain

should we normally have to add who exercise regularly and who maintain to keep the parallelism ?

Both are alright: In the first, two verbs ( exercise and maintain) are parallel - "who" is OUTSIDE the parallel structure. In the latter, two relative clauses (who exercise.. and who maintain...) are parallel - "who" is INSIDE the parallel structure.
(Remember the once out twice in rule for parallelism.)

"sudden cardiac death during physical exertion that is moderate to vigorous in nature"

Along with being wordy, I also felt 'that' to be an ambiguous reference which can either refer to the cardiac death or to the physical exertion. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Hi,
here 'that' correctly refers to physical exertion as 'that' follows the touch rule to refer the noun. However, the touch rule can be ignored in case the middle phrase between noun and 'that' can not be placed away from the noun it is modifying.
