Why women should hit the weight room
05/07/2012
The benefits of strength training are undeniable, and for women it can drastically improve quality of life both now and in the future.

According to Carol Teteak, fitness coordinator at Edward Health and Fitness Centers and ACE Certified Personal Trainer, studies show that lifting weights provide crucial benefits for women of all ages. Besides decreasing the signs and symptoms of chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis and depression it can also help to:

  • Increase bone density
  • Improve joint strength
  • Control weight
  • Boost stamina
  • Heighten focus
  • Reduce the risk of injury


  • Unsure how to begin a proper and safe strength training program on your own, seek out a certified personal trainer.
