A study by Frew, D.R & Brunning measured the relationship between fitness and improved productivity through the enrollment in an employee exercise program. The study revealed commercial real estate brokers who participated in an aerobics program for 12 weeks had higher sales than their inactive comparable brokers during and after the 12-week aerobic program. Research carried out by the University of Glasgow confirms that exercise boosts your mood and energy which increases your level of productivity.
