According to The Center for Addiction & Mental Health, 1 in 5 people experience clinical mental illness and many more struggle with stress or grief. There was a study done at Duke University that proved that exercise improved brain chemistry better than Zoloft. Kurt Bellomy’s Fit Over 40 was a culmination of his own study, working with 140 men suffering with burn-out, substance abuse, mental health disorders, and relationship stress like separation or divorce. In doing so he discovered that as he trained them, clients would quickly lower their doses of antidepressants, dramatically improve their state of mind and boost their self esteem directly related to specific exercises and routines. Kurt discovered that working-out became an elixir for depression and addiction, and many other debilitating mental health disorders.This changed the course of Kurt’s career. Today, he instructs his clients less on the cosmetic side of personal fitness but focuses on teaching about exercises that restore his clients mental health and talks about ending the stigma around mental illness.
It’s all about brain chemistry, endorphins and blood flow. Kurt has designed a fitness program for men over 40 that steadily and progressively releases those endorphins and increases blood flow. Endorphins are neurotransmitters, chemicals that are produced as a response to certain stimuli, especially stress, fear or pain. They originate in various parts of your body — the pituitary gland, your spinal cord and throughout other parts of your brain and nervous system — and interact mainly with receptors in cells found in regions of the brain responsible for blocking pain and improving emotion. Until recently, It wasn’t possible to measure endorphin levels in the human brain, so the role of endorphins in the "runner’s high" for instance and other periods of euphoria or mood change were still hotly debated. However, new imaging methods allow researchers to study the ebb and flow of endorphins as they interact with human brain cells, verifying their role in the rush that exercise provides. In fact, a study at Duke University proved that exercise was a better treatment for depression than Zoloft. Science finally supported Kurt’s theories, and now you can transform your body and mind today as well.
