Pensacola, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2013 -- According to an article printed in the journal Brain Research, a recent study has revealed that children who exercise regularly have a bigger hippocampus and score higher on memory tests.

For the past few years, one of the top gyms in Pensacola FL, Alpha Omega Sports Performance, has dedicated itself to providing children and adults with functional workouts and powerful workout equipment that help them get into shape. This fitness center in Pensacola FL caters to individuals of all health and fitness levels, regardless of what their personal workout goals are.
