From my personal experience over many years of training in various physical sports and exercises I have found this to be true for myself.
Weight lifting - feel better physically - mind becomes focused
Muscle activation (self) - Feel better physically - mind even more focused. Greater muscle control / mind body connection.
Aerobics - (running, intense dance, martial arts (Tae Kwon Do) ) - can get high naturally - more focused mind (best time to think over anything important in your life) - best ways to lose weight.
Yoga - feel better physically - spiritual connectedness (self) Tai Chi, Qi Gong - Physically energized / Empowered spiritual connectedness (self/universal)
A precise combination of all of these elements over a 3 hours in one session and you can tap into higher self and delve into the mystic even.
