We receive many referrals from psychiatrists and doctors on Harley Street, and around London, for exercise as therapy for mental health.
All clients notice positive results very quickly after starting their training programme, with feelings of confidence, new found energy and positivity.
Exercise is more than just for physical gains. It is great for your body, but it is also great for your mind.
Many people have experienced feelings of stress, depression and anxiety, and will understand how difficult it is to escape from that mind-set if not managed correctly.
Regular exercise helps ease these problems in a number of ways:
- Confidence building – Achieving exercise goals, and feeling physically fit, can make you feel better about your appearance and boost your self-confidence.
- Exercise as a distraction – It is an excellent way to let off steam, and escape from the negative thoughts that lead to depression and anxiety.
- Social interaction – Group exercise can be a great opportunity to meet new people and offers a regular social life.
- Release of ‘feel-good’ brain chemicals – Exercise releases endorphins into the body that create feelings of happiness and euphoria.
