Why Strength-Based Training is Your Key to Success…

Today, let’s chat about our favorite topic: strength-based training. At Elevate, we’re all about helping you reach new heights in your fitness journey, and strength training is the way we do it…but do you know WHY strength-based training is such a great way to get/stay in shape? This week’s blog is going to take you on a deep dive into the reasons why strength-based training is priming you for life, not only inside the gym – but outside of it too!!

First off, what exactly is strength-based training? Simply put, it’s all about building strength and muscle through resistance exercises like lifting weights, using resistance bands, or even just using your body weight. And the cool part is – strength training is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, or fitness level – not just bodybuilders and gym bros. πŸ˜‰

Now, why is strength training such a powerhouse when it comes to getting fit and staying that way? Here are a few reasons why we’re obsessed:

  1. Burn, Baby, Burn: One of the biggest perks of strength training is its ability to burn calories like nobody’s business. Unlike steady-state cardio, which burns calories mainly during the workout, strength training keeps your metabolism revved up long after you’ve hit the showers. That means you’ll keep the burn going – even after you leave the gym!
  2. Muscle Magic: Let’s talk about those gains, shall we? Strength training isn’t just about looking buff (although that’s definitely a bonus). It’s also about building strong, functional muscles that support your body in everything you do – from lifting groceries to chasing after your kids to dominating that weekend hike. Plus, more muscle means a higher metabolism, which means more calorie-burning goodness. Who doesn’t want that?!
  3. Bone Zone: Here’s a fun fact for you: strength training isn’t just good for your muscles – it’s also good for your bones. As we age, our bone density naturally decreases, putting us at risk for osteoporosis and fractures. Strength training can help reverse that trend by stimulating bone growth and strengthening your skeletal system. So not only will you look and feel stronger, but you’ll also be building a solid foundation for a healthy, resilient body for years to come.
  4. Injury Prevention (and this is a BIG one for us here at Elevate): Last but not least, let’s talk about injury prevention. Strength training isn’t just about getting toned – it’s also about improving your balance, coordination, and joint stability, which can help prevent common injuries both in and out of the gym. So whether you’re out running along the beach or just trying to navigate your kid’s Lego-strewn bedroom, strength training has got your back (and your knees, and your ankles, and… you get the idea).

Now do you see why we love strength training so much?! Whether you’re looking to shed some pounds, sculpt those muscles, or just feel like a total badass, incorporating strength training into your routine is a surefire way to take your fitness game to the next level…and what better place to do it then with your like-minded fitness family at Elevate!!
