Weight training has a variety of benefits, primary of which are the ability to reduce your body fat, increase lean muscle mass, and even burn calories more efficiently. Equally important for body men and women, the Athletic Club has compiled a variety of reasons for why weight training rocks!:

1. Strong bones: strength training stresses you bones, therefore increasing bone density and reducing the risk of osteoporosis
2. Weight: when you gain muscle, your body is able to burn calories more efficiently. The more toned your body is, the easier it is for you to loose weight and keep it off.
3. Stamina: weight training makes you stronger and therefore less susceptible to fatigue
4. Chronic Conditions: strength training reduces the signs and symptons of conditions like back pain, obesity, heart disease, and even diabetes.
