Power of Exercise

Discover the Power of training; the benefits of each form of exercise and find what will work best for you to achieve your own personal goals.

Strength Training.

Strength training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles. Although many people consider weightlifting only a means to add size, when contrasted head-to-head against cardiovascular exercise, resistance training comes out on top in the battle to burn calories.

Benefits of Strength Training.

  • Lifting can help add lean muscle mass, leading to a higher metabolism and help to prevent weight gain (It’s also critical for women who are trying to lose weight since it prevents muscle loss and ensures the weight you do lose, is fat!)

  • Reduce your risk of heart disease, a study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning found that those who lift weights are less likely have heart disease risk factors such as; a large waist circumference, high triglycerides, elevated blood pressure, and elevated glucose levels.

  • Increased bone, muscle, tendon, and ligament strength, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury key for long endurance athletes.

  • Increased bone density reduces risk of osteoporosis common among women.

  • Resistance-training is great for stress. Researchers have consistently found that those who regularly strength train tend to manage stress better and experience fewer adverse reactions to stressful situations as those who do not exercise.

  • Studies on older adults show that moderate intensity weightlifting improves memory and cognitive function.

Metabolic Conditioning.

Metabolic conditioning is not interval training. Metabolic conditioning simply refers to structured patterns of work and rest periods to elicit a desired response from the body. This desired response is usually to maximize efficiency of a particular energy system Metabolic exercise is about burning the maximum amount of calories (specifically fat calories) possible during a workout. It is also about generating a metabolic “ripple” effect that will burn fat for many hours after the workout.

Benefits of Metabolic Conditioning.

Low-intensity steady state (LISS).

Any cardiovascular/aerobic activity that is sustained for an extended time (usually starting at about 10 to 15 minutes for beginners and 20 to 90 minutes for more fit athletes) at a fixed intensity.

Benefits of Low-intensity Steady State.

  • Helps develop lung functionality and can increase your lung capacity.

  • Can burn calories.

  • Improves recovery.

  • Decrease depression and stress, and promotes heart health.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT).

A training technique in which you give all-out effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.

Benefits of High-intensity Interval Training.

  • Reduce insulin resistance.

  • Improve cardiac function.

  • Produce faster gains in endurance levels than steady state cardio.


Muscle hypertrophy involves an increase in size of skeletal muscle through a growth in size of its component cells. When contrasted head-to-head against cardiovascular exercise, resistance training comes out on top in the battle to burn calories.

Benefits of Hypertrophy.

  • More Muscle (hypertrophy training has the ability to increase muscle fibre growth, muscle visible size, and capacities for strength and power output).

  • Injury Resilience.

  • Elevated levels of testosterone.

Your Power of Exercise.

Each form of training is beneficial to different people in different ways depending on you and your goals. After years of experience we recognised what helped individuals achieve their results: what changes they can make to actually fit within their lifestyle! Also ensuring that they see gradual, noticeable benefits from within a reasonable amount of time – both without feeling over worked or exhausted.
