Why weights?

According to the Cleveland Clinic, here are some health benefits of strength training:

  • Increased strength, energy level and endurance
  • Improved basal metabolic rate, which helps burn calories more efficiently
  • Increased lean body mass and muscle tone, leading to greater satisfaction with your body
  • Improved bone density and decreases the risk of bone fractures in the elderly
  • Possible positive effect on glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity
  • More independence and self-confidence, and prevent falls in the elderly
  • Improved sense of well-being.
