Strength training is an essential component of any physical fitness program. Not only does weight training help build muscle mass, it also strengthens bones, revs metabolism and builds stamina.
Why work out with weights?
Weight training isn’t just for the guys. Ladies, weight training offers many benefits you may not have considered:
- Working with weights helps build bone mass – which is important in later years when osteoporosis becomes a factor. (As we age, bone cells do not replace themselves as quickly as they did in younger years. This causes bones to become weak, brittle and easily fractured or broken. That’s why you so often hear of broken hips or legs after an elderly person has fallen). Weight-bearing exercises now may help prevent bone loss later.
- Strength training is also a weight loss solution – it revs up your metabolism. Adding strength training to your aerobic cardio routine burns additional calories.
- Working with weights also increases your stamina and reduces fatigue. As your muscles strengthen, you’ll also find you have better balance and coordination.
If you would like to begin working with free weights – but are unsure where to start — consult one of our personal trainers for guidance. A personal trainer will assess your current fitness level and help you develop a program that is appropriate for your health and your fitness goals.
