20 Reasons to Start Lifting

There are so many great reasons to make strength training a part of your regular workout regimen – and the good news is that it doesn’t take a lot of time (as little as 30 minutes, 2-3 days a week) to make gains in strength, improvement in muscle tone and yes, even make your clothes fit a little looser.

Once you hit your 20s, and every year thereafter, you start to lose muscle mass. This leads to slowed metabolism, and yes, weight gain. But it doesn’t have to be that way! The sooner you add just a few weight workouts a week, the better chance you have of maintaining your svelte physique for years to come.
