The return of… RESISTANCE!


Resistance at Bootcamp

Bootcamp is planned, there is still a lot of cardio involved but also some resistance work, there is a section detailing why this form of training is so important at the end of the e mail.

Lots of people are away so an anticipate a quieter class, if you want to guarantee some personal attention (who wouldn’t ?!) the 10.30am class is your best option.

Don’t forget feedback is always welcome so if there us anything you would like me to include/exclude or change in class let me know – it is your session and I want you to get the most out of it. Providing gin, sofas and snacks are not acceptable suggestions! Although I might run to cold champagne in the summer . . . .

See you on sat or at your sessions or if you are away have a lovely time but go easy on the chocolate!

Health benefits of resistance training

  • Physical and mental health benefits that can be achieved through resistance training include:
  • Improved muscle strength and tone – to protect your joints from injury. It also helps you maintain flexibility and balance and helps you remain independent as you age
  • Weight management and increased muscle-to-fat ratio – as you gain muscle, your body burns more kilojoules when at rest
  • Greater stamina – as you grow stronger, you won’t get tired as easily
  • Prevention or control of chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, back pain, depression and obesity
  • Pain management
  • Improved mobility and balance
  • Improved posture
  • Decreased risk of injury
  • Increased bone density and strength and reduced risk of osteoporosis
  • Reduced body fat
  • Improved sense of wellbeing – resistance training can boost your self-confidence, improve your body image and reduce the risk of depression
  • A better night’s sleep and avoidance of insomnia
  • Increased self-esteem
