Why Strength Training is Critical to Your Health and How to Do it Effectively

Strength training is no longer simply about "being buff" or preventing osteoporosis. Research continues to prove that strength training is as critical to your health as pap smears, mammograms and annual doctor visits. Strength training can reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Possibly more important is the profound effect it has on your mind. Strength training improves self image, fosters a sense of empowerment and helps women to feel strong - inside and out. Holly will share her 3 Step System to Effective Strength Training so that you can maximize the benefits of your strength training program.
