“Beef Up”

Posted in Exercise

How important is it to build muscle?  How many women are concerned about getting big bulky muscles and are afraid to weight train.  Well, there is more than one means to build strength and most women are not capable of building gigantic muscles, so no need to fear.  You should be more afraid of not strength training!  Why, you ask? Here is some great info taken from Metagenics, a well established vitamin company.  “Muscle is the body’s biologically active tissue, and needs far greater amount of calorie fuel to maintain itself compared to body fat.  Therefore, a high ratio of muscle to fat increases your metabolism, meaning you burn more calories each day!”  Tune in next week for more info.

Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
