Research has found significant and beneficial links between several types of physical exercise and depression, general anxiety, mood, general mental health, quality of life, stress, and well-being. Research has also shown that exercise performed while in recovery from addiction prevents relapse. It does this by decreasing negative feelings or emotions and increasing positive feelings or emotions. The Fitness Center is located in the lower level below the Rec Center at 110 Washburne Ave, Paynesville. Access to the Fitness Center is available 24/7 via a private key through management at Recovery Center.  The Fitness Center features various exercise equipment including Bow Flex machine, treadmill, incumbent bike, rowing machine, lifting bench and free weights.  There is also a separate room with TV and internet to engage in yoga, dancing or aerobics.
