Benefits of Strength and Conditioning for Athletes:

  • Increased energy: more endurance, power and strength which translate into more usable energy
  • Improved digestion and elimination processes: your body is built for and meant to be active in all ways
  • Improved intellectual capacity and productivity: your brain needs a reprieve from thinking; physical exercise provides that respite from the constant intellectual thinking tasks of our modern life
  • Better sleep: exercise enables a better sleep pattern to develop
  • Weight loss: muscle burns more calories than fat because of the higher rate of metabolism within the muscle tissues
  • Strong bones: increased bone mineral density as a result of the imposed loads being placed upon the bone during the exercise sessions
  • Control of depression: you are active in a productive manner and the brain sends out endorphins signaling a happy pleasant state of mind during and after exercise
  • Decreased stress: you are doing something for YOURSELF
