If you already are doing some form of cardio – walking, running, swimming, biking, dancing – add the element of Strength Training for these 3 simple reasons:

  1. Improve your Heart Health – studies show that strength training is just as important as cardio for your heart.  Getting lean through a combination of nutrition, cardio & strength will put less overall strain on your heart.

  2. Lower your cholesterol – a study by the British Journal of Sports Medicine concludes that you may lower overall cholesterol up to 10% and LDL levels up to 14% with consistent strength training.

  3. Reduce body fat – tighten up that mid section & fit back into your jeans!
