Strength Train and Change Your Life!
During the aging process we lost about 1% of our bone and muscle mass each year. Strength training not only helps to preserve your bone health but helps you to maintain muscle mass which can reduce your risk of bone fractures as you age. Strength training also assists in disease prevention and management. For those with Type II Diabetes, strength training combined with healthy lifestyle changes can improve glucose control. Strength training may be effective as use of medication in decreasing arthritis pain.
Incorporating strength training into your exercise regimen can also enhance your mood and your energy levels, improve your sleep quality, and may work as a natural anti-depressant. Endorphin (a natural opiate produced by your brain) levels are increased after resistance training leaving you feeling rejuvenated.
There are many ways in which to incorporate strength training into your exercise routine - exercise machines, resistance bands, free weights, and body weight activities. The All Access Fitness Academy staff can help you develop a customized strength training program to meet your individual needs and concerns.
