5 Facts On Why You Should Strength Train

1. As You Age & Remain Inactive You Lose Muscle Mass

Losing muscle mass may not sound bad aesthetically to some but it can negatively affect your overall body composition. "Inactive adults experience a 3% to 8% loss of muscle mass per decade, accompanied by resting metabolic rate reduction and fat accumulation." Strength training is PROVEN to improve your metabolism, which results in decreasing body fat percentage and having more energy! Also, carrying excess weight allows your aches and pains to decrease significantly and your quality of life to improve greatly!


2. Strength Training Is MEDICINE!

Adding exercise into your lifestyle is proven to decrease risk of chronic illness and disease! Health concerns like osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease are all improved or even rid through exercise. Overall, this leads to an increase in life expectancy! We all want to watch our children & grandchildren grow up and live healthy happy life's! What if I told you strength training would help you live a longer and healthier life? According to a study in 2014 from UCLA, the more muscle mass we have, the less likely we are to die prematurely


3. Strength Training Reduces Risk of Injuries
