What is our mission?
Our mission is to help people improve their overall mental and physical health through fitness and a healthy lifestyle. At The 360 MindBody, we strongly support studies that find if you adopt a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly, you can treat many physical and psychological disorders. For example, research shows that exercise is the world’s most effective anti-depressant, even though it is rarely utilized. Exercise alleviates depression, reduces anxiety, helps people manage PTSD, improves body image, and significantly increases self-confidence. We believe that fitness and a healthy lifestyle are strategies that can empower you, and in combination with mental health counseling will produce amazing effects.
