Muscles are a good thing, being a sign of physical strength, fitness and health. Each individual has a unique physical make-up and therefore my strength programme will help burn calories, boost metabolism and improve overall well-being. It will also help improve your overall posture, making you look younger and fitter.
Muscle is denser than fat, meaning it takes up less space on your body. By losing fat and gaining lean muscle, you can stay the same weight – or even gain some – but actually be slimmer than you were before. Think of weight training as an investment that pays serious dividends down the road. The more muscle you have, the more calories (and fat) your body will burn.
Women who don’t exercise can lose anywhere from 3 to 8% of their muscle mass each decade as a result of inactivity. Strength training can promote bone development, lowers the risk of osteoporosis; reduces lower back pain; and reverses several skeletal muscle ageing factors.
