STRENGTH TRAINING

Why you should make strength training and
adding lean muscle a priority

 

Are muscles really that important you might ask?

  • Increased muscle size makes you more sensitive to glucose and insulin which means less fat around the belly and better blood sugar control.
  • More muscle increases your resting metabolic rate, so you burn more calories at rest throughout the day.
  • A lean, toned look increases confidence.
  • Muscles are vital to maintaining health and wellness as we age so you can move, live well and reduce our risk of injury.
  • Strength training will also help you maintain your bone density as you age.

 

Life is easier STRONG!
