First let me explain what we do then I’ll explain why we do it ;)
At Reactive our sole aim is to make you “BETTER”.
Better can be subjective, and my better might not be the same as yours, so let me elaborate.
My “BETTER” is about “STRENGTH”, “MOBILITY”, “HEALTH” and “WELLBEING”.
Some of those words more than likely don’t really matter to you, and maybe that’s due to not fully grasping why they are important.
Let me start with “STRENGTH” and why being stronger is important…
Strength training is the fast track to being toned, (*not muscly), which is 99% of women’s reason for joining.
*Side note – Getting bigger IS NOT A RESULT OF STRENGTH TRAINING. The only thing that’s making you bigger is what your putting in your mouth.
Strength training involves progressive overload, which means in order to keep getting better and get all the benefits you have to keep challenging your body.
Here’s a cool article from Women’s Health with 12 really important reasons for you to be lifting weights and getting stronger
I’ll list the reasons:
- You will lose 40% more FAT (if you nail your habits)
- Your clothes will fit better
- You will burn more calories
- Improves nutrition adherence
- Handle stress better
- Better mood
- Stronger bones (significantly decreasing your risk of fracture)
- Healthier heart
- YOU’LL LIVE LONGER (surely this is enough reason?)
- You’ll be smarter
Read the article for the research and further details.
Mobility is about having control and strength in your movement, being able to get up and down from the ground gracefully is a good example.
Lack of mobility and strength can lead to dysfunction, injury and pain.
Working on your movement vocabulary is like investing in your health, the more you can do… The more YOU CAN DO.
Most people initially join Reactive because they think they want to lose weight!!!
Let me tell you a secret ;)
