Exercise not only changes your body; it changes your mind, attitude, and mood.
Exercise therapy is a therapeutic method that incorporates the use of physical activity to enhance a person’s mental and emotional well-being. There are numerous ways an individual can be physically active; therefore, it is important to understand the uniqueness of using exercise therapy as a treatment plan. As a client, you will have the ability to work closely with a counselor and create your own exercise regimen that fits your personal physical, mental, and emotional needs. Every individual is unique and has their own set of personal goals they want to accomplish, which can only be achieved with the help of the client. Allowing ourselves to step outside of our comfort zone is the first step towards achieving our personal goals and overcoming obstacles.
