“Depression and loneliness are colorblind situations. You know the world is colorful, but you cannot feel it.”
Everybody has felt lonely at some point or another.
But chronic loneliness is something else – and something altogether sinister, for individuals and for society.
“It is associated with a greater risk of cardiovascular disease, dementia, stroke, depression, anxiety, and premature death,” US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek H. Murthy wrote in his report on “Our Epidemic of Loneliness and Isolation.”
It gets worse. Murthy says, “The mortality impact of being socially disconnected is similar to that caused by smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day, and even greater than that associated with obesity and physical inactivity.”
Social isolation is especially acute for many people later in life. Some have lost life partners and live alone, and some have stopped going to work, while adult children often have moved far away.
We believe that fitness facilities such as ours are crucial to helping people of all ages be physically fit – and socially connected to whatever degree you like.
When you regularly workout with us, you find support, encouragement and accountability. And — importantly — you find it’s mutual, meaning other people need you, too. We’ve seen countless members find positive relationships of all kinds here – from casual acquaintances like some people find at a favorite watering hole… to fully committed friendships … to the enjoyment of group outings.
Even if none of that appeals to you, we believe you’ll gain valuable social interaction just by coming to work out with us a few times a week.
There’s no need to be lonely. Come see us today.
