To be stronger both mentally and physically
Gain muscle mass and increase strength
Cardio is boring!!
To look good. To be stronger = independence
To build muscle and loose fat. To complete a pull up and hopefully compete
I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and that was my wake up call to change my lifestyle. I started eating healthier and lost 40 lbs on my own with the support & help from my hubby. Once I lost the weight, then I started wanting building muscle. I have been strength training for 2 years, have built muscle and continue to want more muscle. I love this lifestyle and I will never go back!
