What is strength training?
Strength training is a physical exercise that uses resistance to work the muscles of the body. Strength training can use machines in the gym, such as the leg press, or free weights, such as dumbbells and barbells.
Strength training can also use bodyweight exercises to create resistance, such as press ups and sit ups. These types of strength exercises do not require any equipment and can easily be done at home.
Benefits of strength training
Why strength training? Strength training is an important part of any fitness and exercise routine if you want to gain results quickly and effectively.
Good strength is one of the most important parts of being a fit person who is ‘in-shape’ and this kind of training should be incorporated into your exercise and fitness routine if you want to enjoy the best possible benefits of exercise to your body and mind.
Weight training is a perfect way to get fit, stay fit, build muscle, become toned, get lean or bulk up (whichever you choose), build endurance, look great and feel incredible. This is what our training guide is all about! With weight training you can achieve any of these goals, whichever is your motivation:

Who is strength training for?

With effective strength training you will get stronger and everyday activities will become much easier. You will perform better in your chosen sport. Your body will look leaner and you will be much healthier.
