Wichita Falls gym hosts ‘Gloomy Day’ free workouts

WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - A gym in Wichita Falls offered free workouts on Monday, January 21, which is usually the gloomiest day of the year. Blue Monday is typically the third Monday in January.

It got this name due to a combination of factors like weather conditions, lack of motivation, and debt. But Planet Fitness tried to look on the bright side by offering free workout. Officials said just a few minutes of exercise can help lift anyone’s spirit.

“It’s always good to get out of the house and have that motivation. Once you get out it’s a lot better than when you stay in. Whether it’s going to the gym or going anywhere, just getting out of the house helps you get into a better mood,” one gym goer said.

A study out of the University of Michigan also found that as little as ten minutes of physical activity per week or one day of exercise per week might result in increased levels of happiness.
