Through my many years working as a personal trainer, the thing I have found most rewarding is helping women to become stronger and build lean muscle through weight training, without the fear of becoming bulky in the process.  Plus there are a whole load of health reasons why strength training is essential to a happy and healthy life so it’s a no brainer that lifting weights should be part of your life. With my experience and expertise, together we will get you in the best shape of your life! There is a huge misconception that weight training will make women become bulky but its simply not the case. What female weight training does do however is make women strong, confident and look and feel amazing. A lot of my current clients had never tried weight training before and now say they feel they are in the best shape of their lives both physically and mentally.

Muscle building is an important factor of fitness training as muscle strength is vital to the human body at all stages of life.

Muscle building doesn’t only increase muscle strength, it also improves balance, co-ordination and with the right amount of strength training, bone density. This is important as we get older as in our later years we are more susceptible to trips and falls. Improved balance and co-ordination helps prevent us from having such accidents. However, if we do have these accidents, improved bone density will help to reduce the risk of broken bones and fractures.

Strength training has also been proved to reduce health problems such as high blood pressure, cholesterol build-up and heart disease.

Building stronger muscles is also important and useful in other situations in life. Muscles are the force that generate the movements of joints and therefore, stronger muscles will help us to lift heavier objects more easily. This can be anything from heavy shopping bags, carrying small children and other day to day activities.

At Banstead Fitness I will ensure that that you are training the complete muscle group to complete joint movements and not just the prime mover associated to the movement, meaning that that not only will you become stronger but the joints become more stable and less likely to get injured.

Muscle building is also great for self-confidence as it can lead to a great physique which can really boost ones confidence and gives a great sense of achievement.

I will provide you with nutritional guidance to help you with your muscle building goals to ensure you are maximizing your results.
