Strength Training

 Most people don’t realize that each decade after our 20’s we start to lose some of our muscle mass. Research shows that we can lose up to 10% of our muscle mass every decade. This means that we may not be as strong as we once were. Unfortunately, if we aren’t using our muscles, we are losing them.

Our training sessions cover all main exercises making your whole body look and feel stronger in a time efficient way

Get Faster-Strength training will make you faster. Whether you are a short distance runner or a longer distance runner, strength training will improve your pace and make you faster. A heavier strength program for the lower body will produce best results.

 Decrease Body Fat/Increases calorie burn: Strength training increases the body’s metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories throughout the day. This aids significantly in long term weight loss. Overall, strength training will burn fat and decrease your body fat making you lighter and faster.

 Builds muscle strength: Adults lose between 2-3kg of muscle every decade after age 20. Strength training will help prevent this muscle loss, and rebuild what you may have lost.

Builds Efficiency: It takes less energy to run, boost lower body power, helping you maintain speed throughout your runs-and kick it in the final stretch.

Prevents Injury: Strength training will help you get rid of nagging injuries or chronic pain and help prevent future injuries. It improves structural balance, helps prevent injury and makes your feel better when you run.

Reduces blood pressure: Strength training can be beneficial for the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure by strengthening the heart, allowing it to beat more efficiently.

Reduces low back pain: Research has shown that strength training can increase low back strength and alleviate low back pain.Take away: The best way to build core strength for runners is to perform traditional lifts.

Without proper strength training we are also more prone to injuries. It is normally the injuries we have had that hold us back from performing to our fullest. The stronger our muscles are, the more freedom we will have to do the thing in life we love the most.
