Strength Training 101

Strength Training Program at Yin Yang Yoga Loft is specifically designed to add healthy muscle to your body and address the issues of fat gain, loss of muscle mass, and lack of bone density in people over 40. Muscle is an active, calorie-burning, tissue that helps keep your metabolism going. The reason why many people in the 40+ age group are gaining weight, while eating the same quantity of food, is that they’ve lost some lean muscle mass due to a more sedentary and inactive lifestyle. The Strength Training 101 Program will consist of exercises utilizing your own body weight as well as various props, such as dumbbells, barbell and a cable machine .

I have always avoided the gym due to having a lack of knowledge about using weights and exercising safely. In the strength training sessions, Galina provides clear instructions and demonstrates the proper use of equipment. She is supportive and gently encourages me to challenge myself while not overdoing it. She tailors the sessions to where I am and always considers my specific needs and goals when doing so. I have noticed such an improvement in my overall strength as well as in my yoga practice after only a handful of sessions. I highly recommend these strength training sessions!

Resistant Training sessions have really improved my yoga. I love the fact that I feel much stronger can hold the yoga positions longer and now concentrate on improving my form. Each session is like having your own private trainer with a program designed specifically for you. In the short time working with Galina I have already seen a big improvement.

Here are some of the BENEFITS that you’ll gain from the Strength Training 101 Program:

* Boost your metabolism by retaining or building more muscle
* Burn more fat than by doing cardio alone
* Build strong bones and combat osteoporosis
* Improve joint stability and reduce the risk of injury
* Increase strength and become more functional

For noticeable results with the Strength Training 101 Program, it is recommended to begin with as little as a 30-minute session, twice a week.

Private or Semi-Private Sessions
In order to teach proper resistance training techniques and monitor the safety of each exercise, Strength Training 101 is offered in either private or semi-private sessions, allowing the trainer to provide the necessary personal attention, make sure exercises are performed properly, and correct the technique if needed.

Designing Your Personal Program
Your personal trainer will design a customized training program based on your level and needs. Your training program will consist of varying workout combinations, incorporating various exercises and props, in order to properly exercise each major muscle group. Starting with a warm up, you will continue to work on your lower body, followed by the upper body and, finally, the core. We will also work on specific exercises to help rehabilitate past injuries.

Monitoring Your Progress
We will show you how to track your progress by setting up a training log to mark down exercises, sets, reps and weights lifted. This gives trainees the ability to stay aware of their progress and set training goals going forward.
