They are all just part of a very long list of things that have serious impact on our health and wellbeing.

But what about fitness?

What effect can a fitness boost at Worcester Fitness have on our every day life.

It turns out that being fit not only makes us look better and feel great, it also boosts the way we think, the way we cope and the way we problem solve.

According to researchers at Duke University who studied people suffering from depression for 4 months  found that 60% of the participants who exercised for 30 minutes three times a week overcame their depression without using antidepressant medication.  This is the same percentage rate as for those who only used medication in their treatment for depression.
