[Excerpt] Overwhelming evidence supports the efficacy of exercise in the treatment of depression and anxiety. Actually, that is a fallacy. There is evidence on exercise as a treatment for depressive or anxiety disorders,(1,2) but these disorders co-present more than they occur in isolation,(3) and we know very little about the effects of exercise on comorbid depression and anxiety disorders. To improve the clinical translation of research, the reality of comorbid depression and anxiety needs to be moved from a sentence in the limitations section of exercise trials to the title of a new line of study.
