About half of the study participants had been living with anxiety for more than 10 years by that time. By drawing lots, the participants were divided into two groups who played sports under the guidance of a physiotherapist three times a week for 60 minutes. The first group was engaged in a moderate regime, and the second – with heavier cardio and strength training. During all 12 weeks, the participants told the scientists about their condition and the severity of anxiety symptoms, including: nervousness, rapid breathing, palpitations and trembling.
