Health Win: Strength Training

In the middle of my strength training workout, my 4-year-old daughter ran in and said "Mom, do you win?"  I was working out at home in front of my computer through this amazing online fitness place called bootcamphub.com. The coach on the screen was saying that we were almost at the finish line.  And to my daughter that meant winning a medal or something.  I thought about it and with strength training I really do win.  You can too.  Benefits include:


  • Maintaining or building muscle mass.  Most women start losing muscle mass at around age 40.
  • Improved posture
  • Improved bone mineral density and help prevent osteoporosis
  • More balanced hormone levels
  • Another added benefit of the strength training I do is that cardio intervals are mixed in, which helps improve metabolism and boost the number of calories you burn during the workout and even at rest.


The good news is that you can try a strength training workout for free by signing up for a 7-day trial at www.bootcamphub.com.  There are 12 coaches, 24 live workouts per week, and more than 1,700 recorded workouts.  I love, love, love these workouts and the coaches.  An amazing company founded by Jonathan Roche, 20-time Boston Marathon finisher, who is a Dad of three kids and just an amazing person.  He founded the company because he lost his Mom and Dad early to health conditions linked to obesity and smoking.  His parents never got to meet his children, and he wants to give men and women the tools his parents never had so they can be rockstar grandparents and great grandparents one day.
