10 Reasons to Strength Train (#Infographic)

Someone recently asked me about the classes that I teach. They wanted to know which one was my favorite. It was such a hard question for me to answer because I love all of my classes. I currently teach Circuit Sculpt, Kettlebells, HIIT and Spinning. And I've taught TRX Bootcamps, Foam Rolling and classes that have targeted kids and older adults. But when I really give it some thought, I think Circuit Sculpt remains at the top of my list. It's a strength-based class. The people in it are great...the people in all of my classes are great...but it's the traditional strength training that gets me excited. I like a good bicep curl or bent row. If only I could drag all the heavy cable machines into the studio, then I'd be one happy instructor!

Moral of the story: Strength training, friends. You really should be doing it! If you're a cardio queen or king, this will hopefully help you understand the benefits:

I just noticed you said you wish you coukd pull the cable machines in... Do you have cable machine workouts we can use?! I would love the help as I have a machine at home and am often stumped as what to do (with Full body workouts, that is). :)
