NEEDHAM, Mass., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Toned arms, legs and midsection are the results of Get In Shape For Women's (GISFW) program consisting of weight training paired with cardiovascular exercise, proper nutrition and the accountability of regular weigh-ins. GISFW studios are located up and down the east coast and across the country.
Personal trainers at GISFW often hear the worry, "I want definition in my arms and legs, but I don't want to get 'bulky.'" Upper and lower body weight training three days a week as part of the GISFW program will only result in increased lean muscle mass, decreased body fat, and a stronger body. Women do not have the hormones to achieve the massive-muscle appearance that unfortunately causes many women to shy away from strength training.
Clients and trainers at GISFW know that weight training plays a vital role in Body Transformation, injury prevention, and overall health and well-being. Weight training increases muscle tone, which increases resting metabolism. If you increase your muscle tone by just 5 pounds, you will increase your resting metabolism by approximately 200 calories per day (1,400 calories per week!).
Get In Shape For Women weight training 3 times per week (approximately 200 calories per workout) will yield an additional 600 calories burned. In total, you will burn approximately 2,000 extra calories per week from weight training and its metabolic response. This type of caloric expenditure goes a long way toward Body Transformation, weight loss, and shape definition.
As more women learn about the GISFW program, they naturally want to tell their friends. In April, every GISFW studio nationwide is participating in the Refer A Friend…Win a Trip to Hawaii promotion! A referring client, chosen at random, will win a Trip for Two and 5 Night Stay in Honolulu! This is the perfect chance to show off your strong and healthy body and motivate others along the way!
