GET IN INCREDIBLE SHAPE WITH
Strength training is an umbrella term which covers a variety of exercises designed to improve overall strength and endurance. Although people often associate strength training with weights, it can actually include a wide variety of different exercises, with and without equipment. It’s often combined with other forms of exercise and training techniques such as circuit training and HIIT.
This type of training is a great ‘all-rounder’ because it can support better physical appearance and enhances health.
How can it help me?
When executed under proper supervision, and with proper nutrition in place, strength training can produce incredible results.
It is highly beneficial for overall physical health – helping to build bone density, support weight loss and strengthening connective tissues and tendons. It can also address weakness in certain muscles to aid and accelerate recovery from injury, surgery or illness.
Other benefits include:
- Gaining lean muscle mass
- Reduction in body fat
- Prevention of muscle atrophy
- Improved posture
- Greater range of motion and flexibility
- Increased muscle strength
- Increased muscle tone
- Increased lean muscle
- Increased bulk muscle
- Increased muscle endurance

Who is strength training for?
Strength training can be beneficial for everyone. Most commonly we use it to tone and sculpt – focusing on key areas of concern such as love handles, thighs, buttocks and stomach.
Women are often put off strength training because they worry that they’ll ‘bulk up’ – but actually the opposite is true. This type of training helps to trim and tone the body for a svelte, slimmer silhouette. It’s also a fantastic calorie burner. We always incorporate strength exercises as part of our weight loss programmes for this reason.
Strength training also forms a crucial part of training programmes for bodybuilders, weight lifters and strong men. It’s also key for anyone competing in sports such as tennis, rugby, basketball and lacrosse.
