7 Life-changing reasons to lift weights

You get married. Have a baby. Move across the country. Start going to night school so you can get a new degree. All of these are life-changing events that make you a different person. But did you know your life can change significantly just by spending some time on strength training? That’s right—if you’re willing to commit to strength training, your life will improve significantly in seven ways.

Here they are: ✅ Change #1: Your Body Changes for the Better This one’s obvious for anyone who has ever stepped inside a gym. When you add strength training to your routine, your body shapes up quickly. Working with a professional like me, you can determine an appropriate strength-training regimen that will give your body the look you desire. When you look better, you feel better and feel more confident. But lifting weights isn’t just about looking good…

✅ Change #2: Your Health Risks Drop Want to reduce your worry factor significantly? Then start lifting weights. When you do, you’ll find your body has better defense against the common cold and other everyday illnesses. But that’s not all. By lifting weights and staying healthy, you’ll be better able to sidestep countless diseases that plague so many people—from diabetes and cancer to heart disease and stroke. ✅ Change #3: You’ll Improve your Stamina Ever just want to crash and burn after a hard day at work? Wish you had the stamina to play a game of kickball with your kids or grandkids on the weekends? Lifting weights will help you improve your endurance and stamina so you can do just that. Once you’ve lifted weights for a while, your muscles grow stronger and you learn how to power through even when you’re feeling a bit tired. Going longer, however, isn’t reserved for the athletic field. ✅ Change #4: Your Bedroom Activities Improve Lifting weights may not transform you into some sort of sexual beast, but it will do lots of good things for your body that translates to good things for your sex life. One way strength training does this is by improving blood flow throughout your body, which is important for sexual function (for both men and women!). Also, you will feel more confident and comfortable about your body and become less likely to struggle with sexual dysfunction. ✅ Change #5: You Can Focus Better Meetings and work tasks can be tedious and it can be hard to stay strong and focused when you are tired and out of shape. Until you start lifting weights. Suddenly, your brain is getting the blood flow necessary for optimal function and your brain even grows new cells! Once your most important muscle kicks into overdrive, you’re ready to be more alert and thoughtful. ✅ Change #6: You’ll Smile More Life is not easy. And when it comes at you full force, the stress can be too much. When this happens, you may find yourself spiraling into a bout of sadness or anger. Lift weights regularly, however, and you’ll experience something the prescription-producing world doesn’t want you to know. Lifting weights gives your body what it needs to fend off funky moods. And you don’t need a doctor’s appointment for a weight-lifting session. ✅ Change #7: You Live in the Now It is good to plan and know what you’re doing next. However, if you spend all your life worried about the future, you’re missing out on something very important: the here and now. When you lift weights, you’re forced to focus on the task at hand. Otherwise, you’ll never get that final rep in. By incorporating strength training, your life is changed for the better, because you learn to live in the present moment, a skill that translates to overall increased life satisfaction.
