5 REASONS WHY WEIGHT-LIFTING
SHOULD BE PART OF YOUR REGULAR EXERCISE SCHEDULE:
  1. For Heart Health!  February is American Heart Month, and lifting weights can help reduce your risk of heart diseases and diabetes!
  2. To Burn Belly Fat.  Do we have your attention now?  According to Harvard University, women who lift heavy weights lose more belly fat than those who don’t.
  3. Boost Your Metabolism.  Lifting weights speeds up your body’s calorie-burning abilities, even long after your workout is over!
  4. It feels awesome!  Lifting (and cardio exercises) release endorphins that make you feel stronger, more confident and happier!
