Billions of dollars every year are spent on medications, supplements, and programs aimed at treating depression.  But did you know that one of the best ways to battle it doesn’t cost you one dime, just some sweat.

A column in M&F reports “Training doesn’t just chase the blues away; a new study shows that it may also help fight depression.  Researchers studying a group of clinically depressed people found that those who began going to the gym were able to boost their mood whether they exercised a lot or a little.  By the end of the 12-week study, 30% of patients in both groups reached full remission.”

Battle the blues while building your biceps!
