It's going to be my first blog of 2020 where I focus my energy and enthusiasm for one of my favourite things. Weights. I love training with weights, I also love teaching people how to lift weights and I really enjoy being able to help people of all ages and abilities to lift weights.
It gets me excited. Because I know how beneficial it is, for everyone.
There are few exceptions to the fact, that lifting weights or doing some form of resistance training will be beneficial to all.
Age is not a restriction, if anything the need to lift weights increases as we age. My current oldest client is in her 80s so please don't feel that you have left it too late to start. Everyone's journey is unique when it comes to lifting weights because everyone's starting point if different, as are the ultimate goals.
Benefits of weight training include:
Of course everyone responds differently and it is also important to factor in the quality of training and progressive overload, this is something I will go into more detail in another blog. Today it's just about the benefits and why I would love it if everyone lifted weights!
If you have any questions or are unsure about where to start when it comes to lifting weights please comment below or contact me, I will happily answer any questions you might have to get you started!
