Why lift weights

musclesWhy should we lift weights?

Here are the top 5 Reasons

  1.     Strong muscles mean less chance of injury, degenerative disease, ageing, arthritis, and osteoporosis.
  2.     Strong muscles mean a better quality of life, for much longer.
  3.     Muscles mean a faster metabolism, faster fat – burning and less chance of getting fat.
  4.     Muscles mean you burn more calories – which means you lose fat quicker.
  5.     A stronger body will help to make all other areas of your life more productive, easier to cope with and easier for you to be more successful!

And remember, always concentrate on form over how much weight you are lifting. If you lift too heavy with poor form it’s the fast track to injury so if you’re not sure and you want to check your form, ask one of our friendly trainers to guide you. Even if you’ve been working out for years it’s a good idea to check because we can fall into bad habits.
