Body Pump is a strength training class which is essential for me to do since I want to lose weight and get toned.
I read an online article this morning about the importance of strength training. It said that strength training will
- make your metabolism soar
- burn fat
- your body will get tighter
- you will fit into skinny jeans
- reduce risks of heart disease and diabetes
- blood pressure could drop
- blast loads of calories
- you can do it anytime, anywhere
- good for your bones
Okay, so the part about doing it anytime, anywhere....I just want to say that it is much more fun to do it in a Body Pump class at 24 Hour Fitness with Kristen with loud music in a room crowded with strong women and men who believe in health and fitness.
