Boxing can help to KO depression
A recent article in the daily mail told how GP’s are now prescribing boxing sessions to help combat depression.
Doctors will be urged to enrol patients as a form of ‘social prescribing’ to meet non-medical needs that may be linked to conditions such as diabetes, depression or obesity.
Tim Hollingsworth, head of Sport England, told the daily mail: ‘Despite the enormous progress we have made with supporting more women to get active in recent years, the gender gap for activity stubbornly persists.
‘It’s never been more important. Getting active boosts mental and physical health, helps manage anxiety and stress, and creates social ties but millions of women are missing out on these benefits.’ Gina Johnson, 46, who attended a This Girl Can session in Beckenham, south London, said it was ‘different from any class I’ve done before’.
At Everybodys gym we offer one to one boxing and group boxing to Everybody! The benefits are clear and if you haven’t given it a go yet…..why not?! What have you got to lose.
