Access To Gym
There are some amazing benefits to having access to a gym during recovery. Not only does it give you something to do when you are struggling with anger or frustration, it also gives you a way to begin getting healthy again after an addiction. You can start off slowly so as not to overwhelm your body, plus you can have a professional there to help you learn how to do each of the moves or work on each of the machines the right way so you stay safe. As your body gets stronger, you can then increase the different type of exercises you perform, in a safe and monitored environment.
