Working Out at the Gym Alleviates My Depression

Three weeks ago I started regular exercise at the gym.  I have a personal trainer who has shown me the exercises I need to strengthen my shoulders, back, legs and core.  I do feel a lot better physically since I started.  I also notice that my chronic depression, which has been very dark and awful for some time now, has diminished noticeably.

My main motivation in starting this regimen is to get stronger so I can better play bass.  Acoustic bass is a very physical instrument, and bass guitar involves heavy amplifiers, i.e. loading and unloading them into and out of my car.
