Resistance training is essential for everyone specially for people above forty years of age. As we age we lose muscle at an average of .5lb and gain 1lb of body fat every year. This contributes to weight gain as our metabolism slows down with less muscle mass, even if your eating the exact same calories you’ll continue gaining weight. This also contribute over time to higher blood pressure. Cholesterol, can cause type Ii diabetes, sleep apnea, and joint problem caused by excess weight. At Ultima Fitness we can help our clients to reverse their conditions through life style changes through resistance training, proper diet, and cardiovascular training.
