I have an excellent selection of weights and equipment that will help you reach your goals. Read about our equipment below with descriptions of each piece and how they will benefit your workout program.
Benefits of training with free weights:
• Greater muscle strength
• Improved muscle tone and appearance
• Enhanced bone density
• Women develop a firm(toned) physique and increased strength
When muscle mass increases through weight training the body's Basal Metabolic rate increases, which promotes long term fat burning!
Training with free weights also has functional benefits such as:
• Improved posture
• Better joint support
• Helps prevent osteoporosis
• Can improve mood and counter feeling of depression
• Improves flexibility
• Improves balance
Use of free weight allows you to target a particular muscle group, but also uses other muscles in your body for help. As these helping muscles get stronger, you will be able to increase the amount of weight you use to train. The helping muscles stabilize and maintain posture during your workout, Which in turn improves your profile, making you look taller and slimmer!
