Fitness and Fat myth: “All I need to do for exercise and fat loss is Aerobics”

Fitness and Fat myth: “All I need to do for exercise and fat loss is Aerobics”

Here’s the reality: Weight training plus aerobics can give 3 times the fat loss of aerobic alone and adds shape to your body. Aerobics alone causes dramatic muscle loss and no increase in upper body bone density.

*4 pounds of muscle consumes as many calories as running one mile every day!

After age 35, inactive people lose muscle each year and gain fat.  Weight training  reverses the aging process.
