Being an active member of a sports club isn’t just good for your fitness.

Being an active member of a sports club isn’t just good for your fitness, but also benefits your psychological and social wellbeing. After reviewing over 1500 published studies on this issue, Austrian researchers concluded that joining a sports club is good for people of all ages and genders.
