Everyone is built to last, even you
Why strength training?
Let’s get one thing straight: you won’t find any body builders staring at themselves in a mirror here. Sure we lift big weights, but we go at your own pace in safe, monitored training sessions.

Plus, unlike a face cream, exercise really does slow down the ageing process. So while we can’t help with those wrinkles, strength training will build up the muscle mass you need to delay the frailty, aches and pains of old age (see the research on that here).
