Corporate Fitness Benefits
Serotonin, dopamine and endorphins are produced while exercising. These chemicals help the body cope with stress and anxiety. If a department is on a tight deadline, they are able to push through without total dysfunction. The brain functions better when the body is fit. Taking a break to rejuvenate the body, floods the brain with chemicals and allows it to tackle complex problems with ease.
