Spring is here and now is the time to prepare your body for those Summer activities. Weight training has countless benefits and can be used in any fitness routine, regardless of age or end goal. For some women, weight training has a stigma that it will make them big and bulky, but that is not the case. While weight training can be used to increase strength, size, and definition of muscles, it also helps to combat fat gains. Since muscle burns more calories at rest than fat, having leaner muscle mass can help people lose weight.

Take care of your body it’s the only one you’ve got. I was recently in a car accident and it completely through off my journey to be healthier and happy. As a result of my injuries I had to stop exercising and I now rest the majority of each day.

I hear this statement all the time, “heavy weights with low repetitions will bulk you up while light weights with high repetitions will tone you up”.   Is there a difference in these two types of training?  The answer is yes – but it’s not about the way you look, it’s about the muscle strength vs. muscle endurance.

Hi Everyone! I’m going to discuss why you should be lifting weights, TODAY, not tomorrow. Are you stuck in a rut at the gym, tired of sweating all over your stair master, while the scale doesn’t move a decimal? Grab a kettlebell, TRX, dumbbell or barbell!
