Optimizing exercise for the treatment of anxiety

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the efficacy (how well something works) of two different exercise regimens for individuals with anxiety disorders (generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and/or panic disorder) who also have high anxiety sensitivity, which is fear or distress when experiencing internal physical sensations associated with anxiety (like shortness of breath, sweating, shaking, etc.). If you are eligible for this study, you will complete a 2-month exercise intervention and 2 follow-up assessments (total duration 5-6 months). The exercise intervention will either include low intensity exercise only or a titration program in which you will start at low intensity exercise and work your way up to high intensity exercise.
