Fight Age-Related Muscle Loss

Fight Age-Related Muscle Loss

There is a solution to fight off sarcopenia and to maintain your muscles: exercise your muscles with an assortment of resistance training modalities. Consistency is key – the muscle building benefits of each workout ends after about 48 hours.

Keep challenging your muscles and they will repay you with ageless strength!  You'll want a weight heavy enough to do 10 - 15 repetitions to fatigue.  This helps build strength and burn FAT!!

Proper form and exercises for you is very important.  It's always best to learn from a certified coach and trainer.  This will help you fast track your results and avoid injuries.  Do it right the first time!!

Call or email today to get started on a program that will keep your muscles young.  Let’s do this!
