Strength training

Not only does strength training add more definition to your entire body, but it has many health benefits too.

Is strength training really the best method for fat loss?

Some health benefits you get from strength training, include:

  • Increased bone density
  • Better balance, coordination, agility, power, and mobility
  • An ability to do every day activities without worrying about getting hurt
  • Fewer symptoms associated with arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, obesity, and back pain
  • Improved sleep patterns, mood, and stress levels

Steve's favorite - what he has to say:

"It increases your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which means you'll burn more calories throughout the day—even when you're not working out. The result is a decrease in body fat and more lean muscle mass, and that's something you can't get that with just cardio. As you can see, strength training does more than make you look and feel confident. And the benefits only multiply as we get older."
