Busy Women Fitness Bootcamp will now run four times per week after the Easter holidays! There will be the usual Monday and Friday morning sessions at Sports Park, Weetwood from 9.20am commencing Monday 11th April, plus two evening sessions at Moorlands School!

The Moorlands School sessions will take place every Tuesday and Thursday  from 7.30pm-8.15pm, commencing Tuesday 19th April 2016. The cost is just £5 ‘pay as you go’.

IMG_1275Each session will take place outdoors. There is something for everyone! If you can’t run, jog! If you can’t jog, walk! If you can’t burpee, squat! All exercises can be adapted to suit all ages and abilities! The exercises consists of body weight exercises, boxing and dumbbells. Strength training is a really important part of fitness, particularly in older ladies to prevent osteoporosis.

Studies performed by Wayne Westcott, PhD, from the South Shore YMCA in Quincy, Massachusetts, found that the average woman who strength trains two to three times a week for two months will gain nearly two pounds of muscle and will lose 3.5 pounds of fat.

As your lean muscle increases so does your resting metabolism, and you burn more calories all day long. Generally speaking, for each pound of muscle you gain, you burn 35 to 50 more calories each day. That can really add up.

Researchers also found that unlike men, women typically don’t gain size from strength training, because compared to men, women have 10 to 30 times less of thhormones that cause muscle hypertrophy. You will, however, develop muscle tone and definition. This is a bonus.
