We all want a fit and trim figure, but to have a lean body—one weighted more toward muscle than fat—that’s something to celebrate! And the way to burn not just calories, but fat, is through a combination of healthy eating and strength training.
Strength is important, whether you’re 35, 55, or 85. Back in the day, the prevailing belief about aging and physical activity was that as we get older, we become frail and prone to injury and, therefore, we should take it easy—not exert ourselves. Today, we know that unless we engage in regular physical activity, we can become frail and be at a higher risk of injury. In addition, without the strength and fitness we gain through exercise, we cannot enjoy our highest quality of life.
Make no bones about it, strengthening your human hardware is as important as putting more power in your muscle. Exercise is essential to keeping your bones strong throughout your life, and the Curves Circuit provides a perfect venue for building bone and muscle and pushing back osteoporosis.
An important variable in any weight management equation is calorie burn. While what you eat significantly affects how many kilos you carry on your figure by controlling calories in, how you exercise makes a difference in calories out. Certainly cardiovascular activities, like walking, running, cycling, and swimming can burn quite a few calories, particularly when performed at high intensities, but strength training also offers significant benefit when it comes to cutting a fine and healthy figure.
Forget flying solo when it comes to regular physical activity. Working out with friends makes the whole experience more enjoyable and more effective.
