Are You Lifting Weights? (If Not Why?)

Morning,
Just a quick email this morning.
It’s my Girlfriend’s birthday and I’m up in London for yet another music festival!
Onto today’s topic.
Weights
Weight training is an absolute cornerstone of my business and how I train myself as well as my clients (and I’m a runner)
The strength session is often the one my clients look forward to the most.
It should be a part of everyone’s training whether you’re a rugby player or just someone looking to feel and look a bit better.
But so many people especially women neglect it.
Benefits of weight/strength training:
–    Makes day to day activities easier (carrying shopping, opening jars, picking up the children)
–    Better body shape and physique
–    Stronger joints and bones
–    Burns a load of calories
–    Improves posture
I could go on and on…
But still so many people don’t include it in their program or if they do they’re using such light weights that it won’t have the full effect. So many are slaves to the same old boring cardio machine workouts, you don’t need to do it.
There’s no need to be scared of weight training but it is vitally important that you do it right. It’ll change your training and your results forever.
Like seriously transform your body shape, there’s no better way.
Maintaining strength is also so important as we age and greatly improves quality of life.

New group sessions for over 40s are being added all the time, it’ll be double the price of a gym membership but 10 times the value. I am even starting female only weight lifting classes, you’ll be in a group of 4-5 maximum so you get that specialist attention you need.
