    gives / give

    Not only does it give physical fitness but also has psychological benefits.

    I guess 'give' is correct in this content

    Thanks

    Not only does it support/improve/promote physical fitness, but it also has psychological benefits.

    Give is not correct.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
