Why Weight?

Weight Training can:

  • Increase lean body mass, which raises your metabolism (lean mass burns 35 50 calories per pound.
  • Decrease body fat (body fat burns only 2 6 calories per pound)
  • Help raise "good" HDL cholesterol
  • Help decrease blood pressure
  • Increase energy levels
  • Increase flexibility (if performed through a full range of motion)
  • Improve sleep
  • Improve balance
  • Help you become your "physical best"
  • Improve body image
  • Increase self-confidence and self-esteem

Weight Training won't:

  • Cause a person to become "muscle-bound"
  • Decrease flexibility
  • Bulk you up
  • Injure joints (when performed properly)
