6 top fitness classes to boost your mental wellbeing

Active Northumberland

Did you know that people who take part in regular physical activity have a 30% lower risk of depression? (Source: Mental Health UK). Exercise is proven to release feel good chemicals called endorphins which boost our mood and make us feel good. 

There are also many other ways getting active can help with our mental health such as better concentration, sleeping better and feeling more motivated.

Group fitness such as walking groups and exercise classes are also a great way to socialise and build connections with others, again making us feel good (more on this below!). 

Lindsey Humble Advanced Fitness Instructor at Active Northumberland says:

‘We have a wide variety of fitness classes here at Active Northumberland. These classes have huge benefits for our bodies; reduction in body fat, muscle gain, core strength, improves flexibility, but most importantly they bring the feel-good factor. The energy, the music, the people, friends we make along the way, this all contributes to improving our mental wellbeing'.
