The Benefits of Resistance Training within a Gym environment

“RESISTANCE TRAINING, more commonly known as WEIGHTS or STRENGTH TRAINING, comes in all shapes, sizes and equipment; it is one of the most IMPORTANT components of overall HEALTH, FITNESS and WELL-BEING and should be completed at least twice a week by adults of all ages especially older people.”

When completing a RESISTANCE PROGRAMME it is important that you have a clear GOAL of what you’re aiming to achieve as this will affect the amounts of SETS, REPS, REST, Speed of Movement and Range of Movement (ROM).

Ensuring your TECHNIQUE and POSTURE is correct, along with a well designed PROGRAMME and employing a PERSONAL TRAINER who is not only QUALIFIED in ADVANCED WEIGHT TRAINING and

SPORTS SPECIFIC PROGRAMMING but is also HIGHLY EXPERIENCED this will give you the quickest road to achieving your GOALS.
