At the Parks Health & Fitness we are concerned with the health and fitness in New Orleans. That’s why if you’re feeling sad, rundown, or unhappy we are here to help. According to WebMd some researchers have found that laughter might be the best medicine the doctor can prescribe. Laughing helps you feel better and puts a spring into your step. Think about it. When your sad or unhappy, having a friend crack a joke always makes you feel better. People believe that laughter can be a mild workout. It’s been proven that laughter stretches our muscles throughout our face and body, our pulse and blood pressure go up, and we breather faster, sending oxygen to our tissues.

Now combine that with actually working out and you’ll be the happiest person on the block. Research has continually found that working out can better your mood. So next time you’ve had a bad day at work or the kids are driving you crazy at home…instead of reaching for that stiff drink. Call your friend and come into the Parks today. We are here to improve the overall health and fitness in New Orleans. We’re dedicated to making sure your fitness experience is not only successful but a lot of FUN and the BEST in New Orleans!
