10 Reasons Why Women Need To Increase Their Strength

By bodyin45 | In News, Strength Training for Women, Weight Loss | on March 19, 2013

The “TEN” amazing benefits for women who train

You’re a woman.  You want to look good and feel good, so you come to Body in 45 to help you reduce your body fat, increase your lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently.  But did you know that strength training has a host of other benefits as well?  Here are a few to share with your friends who are still under the misunderstanding that cardio, cardio and more cardio will help them look as good as you:

Strength training also helps to:

  1. Develop strong bones: By stressing your bones, strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
  2. Burn Calories While You Sleep: As you increase muscle, your body becomes a metabolic furnace that burns more calories more efficiently, even while you’re sleeping. Every pound of muscle you add burns 35-50 calories more per day. The more calories you burn, the more easily you’ll lose body fat.
  3. Reduce your risk of injury: Strengthening your muscles protects your joints from injury. It also helps you maintain flexibility and balance, an even more important consideration as we age.
  4. Boost your energy levels: As you grow stronger, you’ll have more energy to do the things you love, whether it’s playing with your children, spending time with friends or engaging in all manner of night-time activities you’ve been too tired to pursue…
  5. Improve your sense of well-being: Strength training boosts self-confidence, improves your body image and helps your self esteem soar. With summer coming, there’s no better feeling in the world than throwing on a pair of shorts and a tank top and know you look amazing.
  6. Get a better night’s sleep: Women who commit to a regular strength training program report that they “sleep like a rock” and are far less likely to spend the night tossing and turning.
  7. Manage chronic health conditions: Strength training can reduce the signs and symptoms of many chronic conditions, including arthritis, back pain, depression, diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis.
  8. Strengthen Your Heart: A leading cause of death among women, coronary heart disease is significantly reduced by strength training by reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  9. Age Gracefully: A lean and toned body is a visible declaration that says, “I take care of myself.”  Strength training is literally a woman’s fountain of youth allowing her to make the second half of her life the best half.
  10. Feel Sexy: A perk with no needed additional explanation.

    Hi Pete,
    We spoke briefly on the phone several weeks ago. At that time I was researching gyms. I am now ready to start training at your gym and am excited to begin! I am a very hard worker, at whatever I do, but, at this moment, I am very out of shape. I need motivation, hope, and lots of loud music!
    I work in Rochester Hills Monday through Friday from 9:00-6:00. If you have shower facilities, I could come before work. After work, around 7:00pm would also be fine. Weekends are good, too. I can be reached by email or at 248-207-5431. I think your approach is going to work for me and I am ready to get started! Thank you.

      Hi Judy,
      Sorry for the late response… we have recently moved into our new training studio, and we would love to have you come in and train with us. With summer coming close to an end, now could be a good time to get started. If you are ready, give us a call!

      Best Regards,
