Studies show exercise is highly effective in strengthening mental wellness in addition to physical health. Exercise helps to reduce stress, increase the production of the brain's "feel good" neurotransmitters called endorphins, elevate one's mood and improve sleep. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports** that even one vigorous to moderate workout can reduce the risk of depression and anxiety. This is the time to reclaim your wellness, especially in light of what American Psychological Association research uncovered*** – more than half of U.S. adults (53 percent) have been less physically active than they wanted to be since the pandemic started, with a majority (61 percent) experiencing undesired weight changes, averaging 28 to 41 pounds gained.

"In 2022, we're encouraging everyone to make exercise a priority and come to Planet Fitness to start their fitness journey with us," said Jeremy Tucker, Chief Marketing Officer at Planet Fitness. "This means putting your physical and mental health first and experiencing all that the Judgement Free Zone has to offer. Fitness is essential to our overall well-being and an activity that everyone can benefit from right now. Planet Fitness is truly affordable and accessible to all, and will continue to provide a safe, Judgement Free environment, making it easier than ever to become a healthier, happier you."
