Benefits of strength training – Why it’s important to incorporate a strength area in a fitness room

Gone are the days of thinking strength training is just for body builders. Walk into a health club these days and you’ll see almost every kind of age and demographic spending more and more time in the strength areas. Arguably the most well-known yet still misconceived workout category in the fitness world- strength training has some amazing benefits, more so even than cardio (which you can actually get from strength training). From boosting your mental health and metabolism, to improving your balance and flexibility, and of course, increasing your lean muscle mass, the benefits are endless. More of our favorites listed below.

Boost your metabolism, tone and tighten your muscles, and improve your balance, among other amazing benefits of strength training.

  • Boost in mental health: Strength training can have a positive impact on mental health by helping to reduce feelings of depression and anxiety while improving your self-esteem.
  • Improve balance and flexibility: Strength training can also help improve your flexibility and balance which can significantly reduce the risk of falls and injuries.
  • Improve bone density: Reduce the chances of osteoporosis and other bone related conditions by improving your bone density and incorporating strength training exercises in your routine.
  • Tone and tighten your muscles: Regular strength training and a proper diet can increase the size and strength of your muscles, including your lean muscle mass, which even increases your resting metabolic rate and boosts your metabolism.
  • Boost your metabolism: Muscle tissues tend to burn more calories than fat tissue, which means building your muscles through strength training exercises can help you increase your metabolism and burn more calories throughout the day, even when you aren’t working out.

It’s worth noting that these benefits we have mentioned above vary depending on the specific strength training protocols used and the population studied, but overall, they do provide a good general rundown of some of the benefits of strength training.
