Kidz Night Out fun!


Though cardio is good for you, it isn’t necessarily the answer to losing fat. Increasing the amount of muscle on your body by lifting weights will increase your metabolism, as muscle burns more calories than fat (Muller et al, 2011). Resistance training also changes your hormones for the better - men, it’ll increase your testosterone therefore helping you build more muscle. Women, lifting weights helps level out estrogen levels, therefore also helping you build and maintain muscle.

Not sure where to start with resistance training? Come meet with our personal trainers at the fitness center!
