The Importance of Muscle

Shoulder Press High Intensity Training HIT

The biggest issue we face as we age is the inevitable loss of muscle. Starting at an alarmingly early age the average person is at risk of losing up to half of a pound of lean muscle tissue per year. Compounded over the years this can lead to a drastic loss in functional ability and could result in the promotion of a variety of significant health issues.

Low intensity, steady state activities such as jogging and cycling do very little in terms of preventing these issues and promoting a positive change. For those changes to occur, exercise must be of a certain threshold to stimulate your body into making a lasting change. Here at MedX Precision Fitness we make use of an approach that helps you build muscle in the safest, most efficient way possible.

By utilizing our scientifically proven techniques, our clients can anticipate experiencing noticeable improvements in many markers of health including (but not limited to); body fat, strength, cardiovascular efficiency, blood pressure, bone density, metabolism and resistance to injury.
