Everyone needs a Gill's Fitness Trainer. Click on these links to see what the experts are saying about strength training:
~The CDC recommends that adults perform muscle strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms).
~According to the Alzheimer's Association, regular physical exercise may be a beneficial strategy to lower the risk of Alzheimer's and vascular dementia. Some evidence suggests exercise may directly benefit brain cells by increasing blood and oxygen flow. Most research to date has focused on the benefits of aerobic exercise on the brain, but mounting evidence shows that resistance training also may help.
~An AARP article reports that to prevent Alzheimer's Disease, 'Exercise is number one,' says Rudolph Tanzi, director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. 'What seems to happen is, during exercise, the brain turns on the enzymes that break down the amyloid,' he says, 'so for prevention, I think the strongest data comes with physical exercise.'”
~The trainers at Gill's Fitness are superb at improving your balance. According to the CDC, over 95% of hip fractures are caused by falls. Gill's Fitness will strengthen your bones and increase you balance and coordination - reducing the risk of injury from falling.
~You can start a strength training program at any age. According to AARP, experts say most muscle loss comes from not using your muscles enough as you age, rather than aging itself. Using your muscles regularly will help them stay strong and firm, regardless of age, an important reason for older adults to strength train.
Studies have shown that men in their 60s and 70s who strength train regularly have muscles that look and perform as well as inactive men in their 20s and 30s.
~According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, there are 2 types of exercises that are important for building and maintaining bone density: weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercises. 2-3 days of muscle strengthening exercises are recommended to prevent osteoporosis.
~Golf Digest reports that "When most people think of the core, they think of those mighty rectus abdominus muscles responsible for a six-pack stomach and a stable golf swing. But when it comes to the rotational aspects of your swing, the obliques play a key role, too. In fact, if these muscles on the sides of your stomach are weak, you'll really struggle to make solid contact with the ball."
Every sport, not just golf, requires strong oblique muscles. Gill's Fitness trainers know how to strengthen all the muscles of your "core" in the most effective manner, and without causing back pain.
~The American Diabetes Association also recommends a strength training regimine. Strength training makes your body more sensitive to insulin and can lower your blood glucose.
~Studies show that your body can burn extra calories even while resting if an individual trains with the the Gill's Fitness methodology. Total body eccentric training can raise resting metabolic rate by about 9%. If you have weight loss goals, you should call Gill's Fitness!
