    The study you refer to as showing strength training relieves depression is about aerobic exercise relieving depression and doesn’t mention strength training at all??

    Hi John,

    Loved your article because I have experienced the power of strength training first hand to help with treatment resistant depression.

    I always thought of strength training for building muscle, now I realize that strength training can build the invisible muscles of better mood, more confidence and mental strength.

    I would like to help others as well. Do you recommend ACE as a good certification?

    Thanks,
    Rich

      Hi, Rich,

      Glad you liked! ACE is great. NASM is also very good.
