The more people I train 1-on-1, the more I am amazed at the benefits strength training provides. Don’t fall into the trap thinking that weightlifting is just about bulking up and building muscle. Thankfully, this sentiment is slowly dying, but the plethora of benefits strength training produces has still been slow to reach the collective consciousness.
I am thankful that I get to witness people improve their physical, mental and emotional lives through strength training every day. I observe people of all ages holding themselves with grace and confidence as they step into the gym and tackle the 6000 sq. ft floor. Some of these people walked into the gym for their first time only six months ago, wide-eyed and doubtful. Many carried themselves with slumped shoulders and a belief that they could not improve.
Yes, strength training will improve strength and lower body fat, but its benefits also include improved posture, better sleep, increased bone density, maintenance of a healthy body composition, a boosted metabolism, lowered inflammation and a reduction of chronic disease. What else does this!
