Express Fitness aims to help you drive your biological age younger than your actual age to ensure your body is fit for life.
Strength training raises your metabolic rate, meaning you burn more calories even while resting. Raising your metabolism helps with weight control and plays a part in chronic disease prevention. Strength training also protects bone health and muscle mass to help reduce functional decline, to improve both the quality of life and reduce the risk of falls later in life.
