2- The people who exercise everyday are very strong.

It's "every day", two words.

cat desk1- People who exercise every day are very strong.

Good. Every person who exercises every day is strong.

cat desk2- The people who exercise everyday are very strong.

This is only good in certain contexts, and I have to get creative to come up with one. There might be a group of people, and you want to contrast the strength of the subset of the group who exercise every day with that of those who do not.

1 has an indefinite expression ('people'), so it's interpreted as a generic statement. It's about everybody, people in general.

2 has a definite expression ('the people'), so it's non-generic. As already mentioned above, it would be used to contrast at least two groups of people, the people who exercise ... and the people who don't exercise ....

I wouldn't use the second one unless that kind of contrast was involved.
