There are more than 30 million people in the U.S participating in resistance training. It surpasses any other form of exercise in the war on aging and disease.

A muscular body means; greater mobility, higher metabolic rate, greater resistance to fat accumulation, and even offers a solid layer of protection.

Our bodies develop according to the needs we place upon it.  Historically speaking, we are designed for the heavy-duty pursuit of food.  So can we blame our bodies for rebelling against us and our lazy computerized society?

Because we are driven to travel faster and farther in cars and planes, we sit even more. We are slaves chained to our computers and desks. Sore backs, rounded shoulders, sluggish blood, obesity, lack of energy have become the norm in our society. What’s up with that?

We have to keep moving and go to war against sedentary lifestyles. Let’s make the 21-century the healthiest of all!

It’s a new day! Let’s get up and get moving!
