Strength training is a cornerstone of enhancing functional capacity, directly targeting the muscles and movements needed for daily activities. It improves balance, stability, and coordination, which can help prevent falls and injuries, especially in older adults.  

By progressively overloading muscles through resistance training, individuals stimulate muscle growth, increasing strength, power, and endurance. This improvement in muscular strength translates into enhanced performance in various functional tasks, such as lifting objects, climbing stairs, or carrying groceries. 

Old, young, fit, unfit… the benefits of strength training are far-reaching. Strength makes everything easier and helps people live longer and, more importantly, live better.

Research tells us that regular strength training can reduce all-cause mortality by up to 17%, improve sleep and significantly help in the fight to diminish anxiety and depression. Without strength training, we lose muscle mass and strength every decade. If we don’t use it, we lose it!

Improved bone health

Regular strength training has been shown to increase bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. By placing stress on the bones through resistance exercises, the body responds by making them stronger and less susceptible to fractures. 

Enhanced mental well-being: 

Regular strength training has been linked to improved mental health. It can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, boost self-confidence, and enhance overall cognitive function.

Injury prevention

Strengthening the muscles and connective tissues can provide greater joint stability and reduce the risk of injuries. This is particularly important for individuals involved in sports or physical activities requiring repetitive or high-impact movements.

Enhanced metabolic rate

Strength training increases muscle mass, and muscles are more metabolically active than fat. Having more muscle can lead to a higher resting metabolic rate, meaning you burn more calories even at rest. This can be beneficial for weight management and overall body composition. Speaking of body composition… 

Better body composition: 

Strength training helps to increase lean muscle mass while reducing body fat. This leads to a more favourable body composition, giving a toned and sculpted appearance.

Chronic disease management: 

We’ve all heard the term “exercise as medicine”. Strength training has shown positive effects on managing various chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and back pain. It can improve insulin sensitivity, lower blood pressure, and alleviate symptoms associated with these conditions.
