As we age, our muscle tissue shrinks or atrophies.
As this happens our metabolism slows down and
our bodies can no longer burn off the calories
we consume. These extra calories are then turned
into fat and stored in our bodies. Resistance
Training helps to keep muscles strong, which makes
everyday life activities easier.
Muscle burns more calories than fat, so the more
muscle you have, the more calories you'll burn
all day long.
Benefits of resistance training:
bones, especially important for women
you stronger and increase muscular endurance
you avoid injuries
your confidence and self-esteem
coordination and balance
TYPES OF WEIGHT TRAINING:

Specificity and Overload are only three techniques

of strength training improves overall strength,
isolated muscular endurance and total physique
aesthetics. Oh... and it burns fat and increases
your confidence, too. Our personal trainers
will customize a program and guide you toward
Plyometrics - Plyometric
training involves practicing movements that
toughen tissues and train nerve cells to stimulate
a specific pattern of muscle contraction so
the muscle generates as strong a contraction
as possible in the shortest amount of time.
Plyometric exercises use explosive movements
to develop muscular power.
Resistance Band Workouts
- Resistance band exercises are widely used
by a variety of health and fitness practitioners,
both for general strength and conditioning and
rehabilitation or injury prevention. A program
of resistance band exercises to compliment regular
strength training may be able to improve the
strength of more isolated muscle groups.

muscles to improve athletic performance. Baseball,
football, boxing, racing, we customize a strength
program that will help you improve performance

Exercise Ball Workouts - Come on, don't
be afraid; the big bad fitness balls won't hurt
you. Give some of these exercises a shot in
addition to your regular workout next time you're
at the gymYou've seen them lying around the
gym, but you've never really known what to do
with them. At first, you may have thought they
looked "girly," but then you probably
saw some of the most muscular guys at your gym
using them. We're talking about fitness balls,
those big blow-up spheres that can be used to
perform an almost endless amount of exercises
for every body part.
