BOOSTS YOUR METABOLISM AND FAT LOSS
Your metabolism gets a healthy boost from strength training on a cellular level. When you increase your activity levels with weights you improve the rate in which your metabolism burns calories throughout the day. At SFV we recommend starting with 3 classes a week to get a full comprehensive program.
POSITIVELY AFFECTS HORMONES AND LIBIDO
Strength training is key in balancing progesterone to estrogen levels. Weight training is the only activity that creates hormonal changes that help both men and women burn fat while maintaining or gaining muscle. Strength training stimulates the release of growth hormone, which aids in building muscle and burning body fat. It also increases insulin sensitivity- which helps control blood sugar and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes.
SHARPENS YOUR MIND
Adding strength training into your lifestyle it will accelerate your brain's response. It not only increases your ability to learn but it also aids in better memory. The programming at SFV is constantly challenging your ability to balance, utilize coordination, and memorize choreography when performing compound movements.
When we move our body, it stimulates the productions of endorphins; these are chemicals in the brain. The release of these chemicals stimulates the production of dopamine and serotonin, the chemicals that play a role in our physical and mental well-being.
There is no better feeling than following through and completing a SFV class and starting your day with something hard. Wakin up early, being disciplined, and challenging yourself improves your capacity for mental and physical boundaries. Commitment to our bodies and health carry over into everyday life. Anything worth having requires patience, dedication, and consistent effort, so stay the course and don't give up!
