There’s a reason many people are working to get stronger. Not only does it make them look great, it makes them feel great too. Getting stronger involves working on endurance too. Not everyone that starts on the journey with a great body and crazy athletic skills. In fact, most of my clients are out of shape in the beginning and the most athletic thing they do is mow the lawn or carry full dishes to the table. They’re often scared, but still brave enough to put themselves on the line and try something new. That’s a quality I appreciate and respect.
Strength training isn’t just lifting weight.
I love circuit training to build strength. It not only is varied, it’s fun. It also provides a workout for other areas of fitness, such as endurance and flexibility. You can go as fast as you want from station to station, so you’ll always be working at your own pace. You’ll never feel left behind, since you’re only competing against your personal best.
Getting strong provides benefits for weight loss.
Not only do you burn an incredible amount of calories while you’re doing circuit training, you’ll also be building muscle tissue. Muscle tissue requires more calories for maintenance, so as you build it, your body burns more and more calories 24/7. You’ll give your metabolism a boost, making weight loss even easier to achieve. You’ll also look thinner, even if you don’t shed a pound. Muscle tissue weighs more per cubic inch than fat tissue does, so when you replace a pound of fat with a pound of muscle, you appear thinner.
If you want to be healthier, this type of training can help.
Studies show that any form of exercise can help prevent certain conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and even some forms of cancer. Strength training is also good to help prevent osteoporosis. In fact, one study showed that weight bearing exercise can slow it better than some medications and may even reverse it.
Always check with your health care professionals before starting any exercise program. Once you get the go ahead, make sure you alert me to your situation. I can modify the program to meet your needs.
You’ll get better results if you eat a healthy diet that includes more whole foods and fewer processed ones.
You’ll improve your energy level and be more active even when you’re not at the gym, which burns additional calories. It also gives you more energy to have fun with your family and do active things with the kids.
Your posture will improve and you’ll walk taller, not only looking more confident, but feeling more confident too. People will notice the difference.
