We are passionate about empowering and education women about the importance of weight training. A well balanced exercise program should include at least two structured weight sessions each week. It is important that you have a program that is designed specifically for you which takes into account your health history, current activity levels and goals. Many women are often tentative to begin weight training, but once they understand the benefits and personally experience the results - they are hooked!

Women of all ages should be incorporating weight training into their weekly exercise plan. It is important that you ensure you are performing the movements correctly to avoid injury and maximise your time and efforts. A personal trainer is a vital resource when it comes to weight training. They will be able to create a program for you, ensure you are performing the movements correctly and safely and guide you through the progressions of each exercise as you become fitter and stronger!

In order to have a tight, toned body you need to develop and maintain your lean muscle mass. The most effective way to do this - is through weight training! The more lean muscle mass you have, the more energy your body burns through at rest. In other words, the more muscle mass you have the faster your metabolism will be!

Women of all ages should be investing time into a weight training program that is suitable for them as consistently lifting weights assists in increasing and maintaining bone density. Women lose a significant percentage of bone density each decade. The onset of Osteoporosis is common in women during and post Menopause and is something that women should be aware of and concerned about. By incorporating weight training into your lifestyle, you are providing your body with the stimulation it needs to keep your bones strong.

Weight training will increase your overall strength and endurance. The importance of having a strong body cannot be underestimated! Whether you are carrying shopping bags, your children or a washing basket, these simple daily tasks will not challenge your body or leave you feeling drained and fatigued! A healthy, strong body is one that has the energy to handle day to day jobs and activities! Weight training will ensure your body is physically capable of performing tasks with ease!
