Why lifting?

You’ll approach fitness from a viewpoint of what your body can DO, not what you look like.

We lose an average of 10% of our muscular strength each decade as we age, a consistent strength-training program will slow this process down and keep you stronger and healthier.

Afraid of “bulking up” and just want to “tone”?  Unless you have testosterone and eat to grow, you won’t bulk up!  Feminine curves are built by lifting!

Enhanced mood and decreased signs of depression, increased confidence.

Increased muscle mass = increased metabolism.  Your resting metabolic rate increases an average of 7% when you start heavy lifting.  New lifters experience an average 9% increase in resting metabolic rate for 3 days after a session and experienced lifters an average of 8%.

Increased bone density of 1 to 3%, reduced risk of osteoporosis.

Strengthens the muscles surrounding your spine for better neck & back health, including reduced low-back pain. (Sarah is an inch taller than when she started heavy lifting!)

Better posture, balance, and movement in daily activities, and better overall body awareness.

Lifting has been associated with decreased cardiovascular disease factors, decreased LDL (bad) cholesterol, decreased blood pressure, and improvements in Type 2 diabetes.
