The Power of Pumping Iron:  How Weight Training Boosts Weight Loss 

When it comes to weight loss, most people think of cardio exercises as the go-to option. While cardiovascular workouts are indeed essential, weight training, also known as resistance or strength training, is often overlooked. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than fat tissue. By engaging in regular weight training, you increase your muscle mass. This increase in muscle mass elevates your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), meaning you burn more calories even when you’re not exercising. This continuous calorie burn is instrumental in shedding excess weight and maintaining a healthy body composition. 

Incorporating weight training into your fitness routine sounds easy and at ZGF we aspire to support and guide you in your health and fitness goals. Having someone who can develop a multifaceted approach that best suits your weight loss goals is often key to success. Ask to speak with one of our experienced Personal Trainers. Combine weight training with a balanced diet and regular cardiovascular exercises, and you’ll not only shed unwanted pounds but also sculpt a stronger, healthier, and more confident version of yourself.

Lisa’s Handstand Goal – A Client Success Story 

Lisa has been coming to Zero Gravity Fitness since  its inception. She has attended Group Reformer Pilates classes multiple times a week and private personal training sessions. Additionally, she has sprinkled in private Pilates sessions to sharpen her practice on the large equipment, including Pilates exercises on the Cadillac, Trapeze, Chair and Ladder Barrel. 

“I have been a ZGF client for almost 20 years. I love the boutique feeling at the gym, and all of the trainers have been exceptionally professional and passionate. 

Several months before my 60th birthday, I set a goal of doing a free- standing handstand. I worked with Sean, who was incredibly patient, and he developed a personal training routine to address the skill set required for a handstand. He helped me break down each component, and coached me through the necessary strength and mental elements. My next goal is more proficiency at jumping rope.”
