The Well Being Fitness Center
“…(exercise is simply one of the best treatments we have for most psychiatric problems.”
- John J. Ratey, M.D., Harvard Medical School
While clients are receiving counseling they have open-access to our on-site fitness center at no additional charge. We believe in the power that exercise and movement hold as a form of mental health treatment, and have established it as a cornerstone of our practice!
When we opened our doors in June of 2011, The Well Being was the first outpatient mental health facility in the United States to provide its clientele with an on-site fitness center, specifically for their use, and specifically for their mental health. As of today and to our knowledge, we remain the only place in existence to combine these two elements of treatment. If you know of any other such facility, we’d love to hear about it!
