"I love the challenge of new exercises and enjoy feeling confident and strong."
These are the words of long term inspirational member Kelcey, who unbelievably, is celebrating turning 74 years young this week. She trains three mornings a week varying her workouts each session with a combination of HIIT (high intensity interval training), suspension classes and personal training. Her varied and challenging programs cover a mixture of weights, cardio, agility, balance, stretching, mobility and core exercises.
Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer, Rafa, shares his thoughts on resistance training, a key part of Kelcey's program. Resistance training (RT), also referred to as a gym workout, lifting weights and even using the machines, does a "whole lot of good stuff" for your health.
To mention a few:
- it increases your basal metabolic rate (BMR) which is the number of calories required to keep your body functioning at rest
- drops your blood pressure
- decreases your resting heart rate
- enhances your flexibility (You won't become stiff if you lift weights? NO, you will be more flexible in fact!)
- makes your bones stronger
- reduces the pain and discomfort caused by arthritis and more.
Believe it or not, it improves your maximum aerobic or cardio capacity too. If lower back pain is holding you back, a guided resistance program can also be helpful.
Kelcey is an exceptional role model for what can be achieved with dedication to staying active using a well-constructed exercise program inclusive of resistance training.
