Have you heard about strength training?
Did you know that strength training is the key ingredient for your fitness and overall health?
Yes, it's true! This is powerful training that utilizes muscular force against resistance, therefore, building a stronger and healthier body. You can strength train with actual weights or you can even do it with only your body weight.
If your goal is to trim body fat, gain lean muscle mass and burn more calories, strength training is for you!
Trainers and coaches everywhere are teaching their clients how to add this powerful program into their lives. Here is what Sue Clark, a Chicago-based strength coach had to say about strength training.
Brighten up any day when you start it off with strength training.
Recent research published in JAMA Psychiatry revealed it's even beneficial for your mood and may help to alleviate symptoms of depression.
When it comes to weight loss, turn to strength training to help burn that fat! These workouts build stronger, larger muscles and rev up your metabolism. Larger muscles burn more calories from fat.
Remember how it feels to be fit and fabulous? You can experience it again. Training with resistance over time builds better self-confidence, because you begin to look and feel your best. Now that's a great reason to begin a strength training program today.
What if we had strong bodies, muscles, bones and mind? We could accomplish anything! No more doctors. No more medical bills. Our body systems would run top-notch. We could be disease-free. Just think, about how bright our future would be. And all because of strength training. Wow!
