Why lift?

3 Reasons Why You Should Lift Weights

1. Look better in your clothes
Well, this is sort of obvious. Women can look forward to wearing sleeveless shirts with nicely toned arms. Men can look forward to having a more athletic look with broad shoulders.

2. Speeds up your metabolism
This is one of my favorite things about lifting weights! The more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns while at rest. This is why people who lift weights a lot can eat more food without gaining weight like people who do not have much muscle.

3. Get stronger
Building strength all over your body will make everyday tasks easier. Standing for long periods of time won't be so exhausting, tasks like cleaning and carrying groceries won't be so tiring either.
