TinaWeight Control:  Everything you eat contains calories, and even if you eat a low fat diet, your body will store unused calories as fat. Exercise helps control your weight by allowing your body to burn the calories that it might otherwise store as fat.

 Our fitness programs, such as Solid-Core Fitness, guide you through a variety of exercises that allow your body to begin burning stored fat as fuel. Remember, for the first twenty minutes of any exercise, your body will be using energy made from food you ate that day. You won’t start burning stored fat until you’ve exercised for over twenty minutes continuously.

The bad news is, you can’t lose body fat from just one area of the body at a time; fat loss has to occur from your entire body all at once.

Fitness BenefitsHowever, you can still tone the muscles of your body, which means that you’ll have more physical strength and endurance, which will help you to exercise for longer periods of time to burn more calories and control your weight more effectively. Since fat is burned within the muscles, building and maintaining muscle mass will allow you to burn calories more effectively. All our programs combine Endurance Activities with Strength Training Exercises.

Strengthen Your Muscles and Fitness Benefits Bones: When you lift free weights, your muscles respond by building more muscle to prepare themselves for similar stress in the future.  In a similar way, your bones strengthen themselves in response to certain kinds of exercise.

When bones grow denser you won’t be able to detect it visually as you can with muscles. This strengthening is nevertheless particularly important as you grow older, because it can help prevent, or lessen the effects of osteoporosis.

As you age, it’s important to protect your bones, joints and muscles. Not only do they support your body and help you move, but they help ensure that you’re able to do your daily activities and be physically active.

Not only will exercise strengthen your bones outright. But because exercise will improve your balance and strengthen your muscles, you reduce your chances of breaking bones in a fall.
