February 2, 2022 (San Diego) -- Punxsutawney Phil has spoken - we can expect six more weeks of winter!

Exercise helps release endorphins and maintains muscle mass. The benefits are especially noticeable for those who suffer from SAD; exercise has been shown to help alleviate symptoms during these dark, cold months.
