Weekly Fitness Tip

March 14, 2004

I’ve been training for about two years and I am seeing changes all over my body. What I would like to know is what should I expect to happen in terms of fitness benefits? (Garrett, Bayshore)

The visual changes you are seeing are proof of the benefits of training and sound nutrition. Other health related benefits are:

  • Changes in body composition- particularly more lean muscle mass and less fat
  • Endurance and stamina in the cardio-respiratory and muscular systems
  • Increased flexibility and noticeable strength gains

Improvements in the skills area can be summed up:
Increased coordination, agility, balance and body to eye reaction time. In your daily life you will be more spry when you get out of a car, able to lift heavy packages from the trunk and react quickly to changes in the pavement, or obstacles that disturb balance. All of these improvements will become a second nature to you.

Continue to enjoy your workouts and keep them consistent. You are destined to improve beyond your wildest imagination
