Strength Training and your metabolism

Why do I love strength training?

Not only is it my personal therapy before hitting my private clients, but it’s important training for my physical being. It stimulates my mind, it builds a strong athletic body and it raises my metabolism which means my body processes food at a higher rate. Food is energy that my body requires to perform to its optimum. Finding the correct balance of nutrition is the most important part to increasing your metabolism whilst sustaining energy levels and promoting fat loss. Strength training with weights is one fabulous way to increase your metabolism in time. Why? and How? The indirect effect of strength training is it helps you build muscle which in turn does help increase your metabolism. Muscle burns a much higher percentage of calories at rest, whereas body fat is much lower calorie expenditure on a daily basis. So no matter what your goal is in relation to fitness, having a fast metabolism is a benefit to you achieving your goals. Happy Thursday facts.
