Enhance: The body usually secretes adrenaline and norepinephrine with exercise or stress. However whether this hinders or helps performance would depend on the type of exercise. While the effect may accelerate certain skills , it may also lead to reduced coordination. Are you asking whether beta blocker would help reduce your anxiety ; improve performance? That's a $64 question.
