Why Maintaining Muscle Mass Is Important

circuit training
Muscle aging may start at a relatively young age. By the time you’re in your 30s, age-related muscle loss may already have begun if you’ve neglected to take proactive steps to prevent it.

Your muscles help keep your metabolic system intact, and maintaining muscle mass helps protect you against metabolic and hormonal decline, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

With appropriate diet and exercise, especially strength training, you can avoid and even reverse age-related muscle loss.

At Pro Active we like circuit training because it promotes muscle growth and improves cardiovascular health. The byproduct from this kind of workout is a better working metabolism.

Once muscle loss sets in your health is on a steep downhill slope. Loss of muscle equates to a general loss of physical energy, a tendency to gain excess weight, enhanced vulnerability to disease, and accelerated aging.
