Strength training, also known as resistance training, involves lifting weights or using other forms of resistance to build muscle and increase strength. The benefits of strength training go far beyond just looking good.

Some of the key benefits of strength training include:
    1. Building Muscle Mass: Strength training can help you build lean muscle mass, which can improve your body composition and metabolism.
    2. Burning Fat: Strength training can also help you burn fat by increasing your metabolism and improving your body's ability to use fat as fuel.

    4. Reducing Risk of Injury: Strength training can help improve your balance, stability, and overall movement patterns, reducing your risk of injury both in and out of the gym.
    5. Improved Quality of Life: Strength training allows you to be mobile,  fit and strong which in turn will give you more independence as you age in life.

    1. Set Realistic Goals: Make sure your weight loss goals are achievable and realistic, so you don't get discouraged or overwhelmed.
