Strength Training

Evolutionary Fitness is proud to offer state of the art Star Trac® strength training equipment to our members.  You will find cable motion equipment, a full circuit of selectorized equipment, plate loaded machines and free weights.  While strength training with resistance is known to build muscle, it is also beneficial for improving range of motion, flexibility, posture, and tendon strength. 

 

Studies have shown that one-third of a pound of muscle is lost per year after the age of 40.  Sarcopenia is age-related loss of muscle mass, strength, and function.  Much like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, sarcopenia is a serious degenerative condition; reduced muscle mass increases risk for injury and results in loss of mobility and balance. Metabolically, muscle is an active tissue that allows the body to burn more calories and, in turn, reduces risk for developing diabetes and/or obesity.  A study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology showed that strength training can reverse sarcopenia.  The trainers at Evolutionary Fitness can customize a personal strength training program for both men and women.
