Abstract

1. Some researchers have stated that the perception of fitness and health may be a better predictor of psychological improvements than actual cardiovascular fitness. 2. It appears reasonable to encourage patients in psychotherapy to participate in a regular exercise program. 3. Adjunct treatments such as exercise may become increasingly important and helpful in the changing health care delivery and reimbursement environment where more short-term and self-help therapies are being strongly encouraged.
