Why Strength Training

Strength training goes beyond lengthening our lifespan – it extends our quality of life.

Understanding the role of strength and bone density as you age.

As you age, maintaining muscle density and bone strength becomes crucial not only for your health but for staying strong, capable and energetic.

Did you know what 30-60 minutes of strength training/week can achieve? Studies have demonstrated that it lowers risk and mortality of major non-communicable diseases by as much as 20%. Read about this meta-analysis here. These benefits can be achieved as quickly as 3-6 months by training only once or twice each week.

Going beyond cardio to build true strength.

Many turn to cardio for fitness, but to truly feel and look strong, a well-rounded strength training regime is essential. If you’ve been diligently doing cardio without seeing the desired results in strength and body composition, it’s time to rethink your approach.

Researchers have found that a well-rounded exercise program, including both strength and aerobic exercise, was the most effective intervention to combat sarcopenia (age-related progressive loss of muscle mass and strength).

A personal trainer designs exercise routines to target your unique fitness objectives, ensuring that each workout efficiently contributes to your specific goals. This personalized approach maximizes the effectiveness of your sessions, helping you achieve better results faster while reducing the risk of injury.

Ideally, engaging in personal training sessions twice a week provides a good balance between workout intensity and recovery time. This frequency allows for sustained progress under the guidance of your personal trainer, who can adjust your program as you improve, ensuring that your fitness journey is both effective and manageable.

Your program is adaptable.

Sometimes you're drained by an intense work project, or you're recovering from the flu, or you're adapting to a new school schedule for your child. 

We remain flexible to adapt how you train to ensure you still benefit while ensuring we accommodate whatever life throws your way.

We're prepared for ups and downs, but we're here to  keep the momentum up and help you stay motivated throughout your fitness journey.

Strength training primarily focuses on challenging your muscles and bones, which encourages the body to increase muscle mass and enhance bone density. As your body adapts to the increasing demands, the intensity of exercises is increased to promote further physical improvements. While strength training prioritizes muscle and bone development, it still supports maintaining a healthy range of motion. Although different in focus, strength training complements Pilates and Yoga.

Building muscle mass and enhancing bone density are crucial for overall health and longevity. Personal training helps by incorporating strength training exercises that are specifically designed to improve muscle and bone health, thereby reducing the risk of injury and age-related diseases such as osteoporosis. Your personal trainer will ensure that these exercises are performed correctly and effectively, tailoring them to your body’s needs.

Sonal C.

Recess is amazing! Gyms have always been super-intimidating to me, but Recess is such a warm and welcome place.... it's not all gym bros, but people of all kinds and levels. Adrian works with people from where they are to get stronger in a safe, pain-free way, and he's incredibly encouraging. Take a class or try out their personal training, you won't regret it.

Jake B.

I can't say enough good things about this place! I've been training here for a several months now and have absolutely loved my experience. I've been so happy with the tailoring of my training: moving from rehab into very specific and personalized work to strengthen and develop for soccer. Personal training is customized and thoughtful and the classes are small and super accessible, providing the perfect balance between personalized workouts and group motivation. I've been attending both as I find them to complement each other really well. Give this place a try!

Making fitness a meaningful part of life after cancer was both necessary for me and intimidating to approach alone. My fitness experience with personal training has been nothing but positive - being adaptive, knowing when to push and knowing when to take it easy is one of Adrian's greatest strengths. Today, I am strong!
