October 16, 2018 - The Journey of Strength
Mat Palmer at the 2016 Provincial Powerlifting Championship
Upon review of the research, strength training is one of the best activities that adds nothing but benefits. The research has proven that strength training maintains and improves muscle mass as we get older; even at the young age of 80 we can still improve strength, which leads to greater degrees of independence.
It has been shown that strength training also improves cognitive abilities, and has benefits for Alzheimer’s. It improves our overall all health, including nervous system activity, hormonal activity, blood pressure, and diabetes. When you are strong, you can be as active as you want to be, and do the things you want to do. Strength, to us, is an exciting adventure of self-challenges with great rewards, not to mention the benefits of being stronger for sport whether it is competitive or recreational.
In this workshop you will learn about why strength training is what we consider one of the best activities in which you can participate. Please take time to join this workshop and learn more about strength training and your health. Let Blaine Mackie and Mat Palmer take you on a Journey of Strength, and learn the physiological response of strength training and the affects it has on the body.
