Two separate studies have shown that green gym activity reduces stress and exercising in groups improves health and well being significantly more, across a range of measures, compared with exercising alone.
Those exercising in a group showed significant improvements in all three quality of life measures: boosting mental well-being by 12 percent mental, self-reported physical fitness by 24 percent and emotional stability by 26 percent. They also reported a 26 percent reduction in perceived stress levels.
In a study conducted by the University of Westminster for the BBC’s Trust Me I’m a Doctor series, those participating in a Green Gym reported higher levels of well-being and lower levels of stress, anxiety and depression, and saliva samples showed a 20% improvement in their cortisol awakening response, a scientific measure of well being.
The perfect medicine to improve the well being of our communities is a fresh air gym with group exercises classes. If you're considering purchasing Green Gym equipment and would like to know more, visit our products page, or get in touch with one of our experts today.Back to all blog posts
