So much focus is put on weight loss within the fitness industry, that most of us don’t stop and think about strength and the role it plays.
While weight loss is a common goal for most gym-goers, you should always incorporate strength training. When you build lean muscle is give your body the ability to burn more calories with a higher metabolism, it gives your body the strength to fight off diseases, and it keeps you fit so that you can stay active even when you think you’re getting old!
Andrea is a grandmother of 4 who discovered the benefits of strength gain:
“Shortly after I turned 60, I noticed that I did not have as much energy and I was becoming weaker.
A traditional gym and their classes did not fit into my schedule. A friend suggested I try Koko and since then, I have loved working out at KOKO over the last 2+ years.
I can get my workouts in anytime of day. I have become much stronger, move more quickly and my Dr. and I are thrilled with my health results. I have four Grandchildren and teach Pre-K.
I am thankful that I have the strength and energy to keep up with all of them thanks to Koko!”
Andrea continues to strive at Koko and build her lean muscle mass. You go Andrea!
