Do you want to be healthy and look ten years younger? Then it is time to exercise with weights. A fitness trainer Holly Perkins claims that strength training is as important for your health as annual checkups. "There is a link between your health condition and your muscle mass. When you build muscles, your metabolism speeds up and it becomes easier for you to slim down and maintain a healthy weight. Regular weight training will lower the risk for many diseases such as, diabetes, heart disease and hypertension," says Perkins.
