Strength training can be LIFE CHANGING in a number of ways. There are host of benefits that we will cover throughout this article that may just tempt you to jump off the treadmill and start lifting some weight!

For a beginner, the idea of walking to the weights section to lift things up and put them down can be a daunting task and honestly we get it, we really do. In fact, that is exactly why we originally created our epic Induction system. We focus on creating programs filled with exercises that will benefit you and bring you closer to your goals while ensuring it’s a regime that is sustainable going forward. The  two personal training sessions are there to show HOW to execute the given exercise to get maximum benefits and minimise the risk of injury. Everyone that walks through our doors at Tomfit is offered the chance to take advantage of our trainers knowledge and experience to get the perfect kick start to their training.

So, whats so good about strength training? 

heres a lift of benefits…

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Increased bone density 
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Prevents sarcopenia (the deterioration of muscle that comes with age)
  • Aids with Fat loss
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Improved stability 
  • Improved sleep 
  • Helps prevent/manage type 2 Diabetes 

The list goes on but i’m sure you get the gist now.. DO THE STRENGTH TRAINING!

There are VERY, VERY few cases in which strength training wouldn’t be a great option. From a visual standpoint it can transform your entire physique and the gained confidence and strength will have you feeling like superhuman version of yourself. The physiological benefits (which are in abundance) speak for themselves. The effort to benefit ratio is hugely in favour of strength training and if your program is complimented with a “suitable” diet you can very quickly see BIG changes, ESPECIALLY as a beginner.

As a beginner to strength training you are from a physiological standpoint primed to able to make your fastest progress of your entire strength training “career”. Make the most of it by getting a great program, eating well and being consistent.
