"Making the world a stronger place" This is our motto and our goal, and for many reasons.
If you discovered that a certain way of training may benefit your heart, strengthen your bones, improve your balance, burn fat and make you look and feel better, would you not be interested in getting started as soon as possible?
Well, studies have shown that regular strength training can do all of that and then some! It will benefit people of all ages and may be particularly important for people with health issues such as arthritis or a heart condition.
1. It will permanently keep the weight off.
Exactly as it sounds! Regular strength training not only aids in fat burning, but it will help keep that fat off for good. Recent studies have proven that Men/Women who implemented styles of strength training into their workouts for a minimum of 3 days a week, increased the overall amount of calories burned in normal daily activity, (Including the calories burned during exercise) in turn helping them to maintain their current weight.
2. Strengthens Bone Density & Improves Health
As you age, you naturally lose muscle and bone mass (roughly 1% each year). This is of special concern for women, whose bones are smaller to begin with and can become dangerously weakened by age. Now, weightlifting can help fight this! Just as your muscles adapt to the stress of weightlifting by becoming larger and stronger, your bones also adapt. Every time your bones perceive stress, the response is that more bone will be "deposited".
By incorporating strength training in to your life, you will be able to prevent and even Reverse Muscle & Bone Density Loss.
3. Develop stronger body mechanics
People generally relate strength to a muscular physique and nothing more, but it goes well beyond that.
