Just like with hair or fashion, forms of exercise go through fads. While you may have rocked your low-impact aerobics class in the 80’s and 90’s, you may notice that your same old aerobics routine is just as fashionable as your neon leg warmers, scrunchie and crimped hair! Any form of exercise is beneficial, but there is one that can greatly benefit everyone: strength building workouts.
There are many benefits to strength building workouts, including:
- Beneficial for all ages and sexes. Strength building workouts can be done by people of all ages and fitness levels. As we age, we start to lose bone and muscle mass. Strength building workouts can help stop and even reverse this process.
- Can be done anywhere. These exercises can be done with or without equipment. This is especially handy for those who travel a lot and may need exercise that can be done right in their hotel room.
- Time-effective. Strength building workouts don’t have to last for hours before they will kick-start your metabolism. Additionally, because muscle mass burns more calories, as you gain more muscle mass, you’ll burn more calories during the rest of your day than you would otherwise.
- Tangible Results. By measuring yourself around key areas before and during your strength building workouts, you’ll be able to see and feel the progress you’re making. This can be a great motivator to continue exercising!
You don’t need to be in a body-building competition to add strength building workouts to your regimen! Contact our trainers here at In Motion Fitness for tips on which strength building exercises would be best for you and your needs.
