Fitness First Saturday – Strength Training

For this month’s radio interview, I wanted to focus on the importance of strength training as part of a healthy lifestyle. I talked about the reasons to include some kind of weight training or other core muscle exercises into your weekly routine. Strength training helps slow the effects of the loss of bone density due to aging, helps with our balance and increases metabolism. I also made sure to debunk the notion that working out your muscles, especially for women, will turn you into an “Arnold Schwarzenegger.”   And, if you think you are too old to even think about getting in shape, tell that to several of my clients who are in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
