Fierce & Fit
Firstly, highly qualified, insured and registered Strength and Conditioning Coaches deliver our programs – sadly, this is not always the case.
Fierce & Fit is a women’s only hour of Strength and metabolic conditioning which is purposefully programmed to deliver maximum benefits for women.
Strength training is incredibly beneficial for women, building lean muscle mass, assists maintain body shape and improves our overall body strength – our pound for pound strength, as we travel along with life’s demands.
As women, we worry about how hard it can be to maintain our body weight, manage hormonal fluctuations, maintain strong bones, maintain lean muscle (or build it) keep our metabolism fired up and body fat low as we age …and rightly so! The older we get the harder it can be and yes that little more work needs to be done. Strength training has been scientifically shown to improve bone density and help prevent Osteoporosis (bone mineral density loss) and improve outcomes for those with Osteopenia (less severe bone loss), it also helps prevent Sarcopenia (muscle loss).
