Strength Training and Conditioning

Whether recovering from injury or wanting to enhance your fitness lifestyle, strength training and conditioning can provide significant health benefits such as, stamina, endurance and overall muscular tone.

Strength Training progressively increases the output force of the muscle through weight incrementally along with exercises that target specific muscular groups. And it uses resistance to induce muscular contraction.

Conditioning is a consistent regimen of exercise, diet, and rest. A proper conditioning program has multiple components, including strength, speed, balance, agility, coordination, power and endurance.

When done correctly, both Strength Training combined with Conditioning you will notice:

• Improved joint functions
• Reduction of potential injuries in muscle, tendons and ligaments.
• Increased bone density
• Increased metabolism
• Improved cardiac functions
• Improved lipid profiles
