You may be in a position where you don’t need to lose body fat, and as a consequence, you may think you don’t need to exercise because that’s what people who need/want to lose weight do, right? Well, yes, but just because you’re already slim, doesn’t mean it’s not important for you to train your muscles.
From the age of around 35, bone density starts to gradually decrease, which if left to its own devices will lead to osteoporosis (brittle bones). Muscles also gradually start to waste away if they’re not put under regular force, leaving you with a weak and frail body as you age.
Regularly training your muscles with weights is one of the best things you can do to stop this happening.
So yes, you may be slim, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t train your muscles to keep your body healthy and strong.
I coach my clients through tailored strength training programmes to help them build and maintain strength throughout their body. If you would like to benefit from a regular strength training programme but don’t know where to start, contact me now to arrange your FREE 30-minute consultation.
