Strength & Resistance Training

Strength and resistance are essential components of a fitness program to build the bone density that we lose as we age, build muscle, boost metabolism, and lose unwanted fat. Strength training combined with cardio refuels the body, preserves stamina, and prevents such chronic and debilitating diseases as osteoporosis.

Whether you are carrying groceries, working in the garden, or playing with your children, everyday tasks will be less taxing if you adopt a regular strength and resistance training program. Novalife Fitness has designed a safe and proven strength training program to create long, lean muscle mass and increase bone strength, muscle mass, and connective tissues. Increasing muscle mass is essential for all adults as our muscle mass decreases by nearly 50% between the ages of 20 and 90. On average, people lose 30% of their strength between the ages of 50 and 70 and / or generally people lose about 1% of their lean muscle per year after 40. Neglecting certain muscle groups can lead to strength imbalances and postural difficulties. In this class, we not only work all major muscles, we target the often ignored assisting muscle groups as well.

  • Amy and Novalife Fitness are excellent for anyone who wants to improve their level of physical and mental fitness. I have been going to Amy’s small personalized classes for two years and love every minute. The workouts can be tailored so that they match any level of fitness and everyone can participate in a positive energy-charged atmosphere. Even when we are working hard we have fun.

  • Anyone embarking on a fitness regime would greatly benefit from Amy’s classes at Novalife Fitness. Amy came highly recommended to me and has gone beyond my expectations. I have attended Amy’s classes for over four years. Her positive attitude is a great asset to her willingness to work with her clients at their own levels.”

  • I’ve been going to Amy’s pilates class for four years and love the workouts. She is great at tailoring the exercises to different levels of capability and intensity. Also, the classes are small, so you get plenty of attention when you are learning new moves, and the atmosphere is always extremely positive.

  • I hired Amy as my personal trainer in October 2014 and have not looked back since. She really understands the specific needs of each client and customizes unique fusion workouts that combine yoga, pilates, free weights, resistance training, and cardio. After a few sessions, you can really start seeing results. If you are looking for a great workout, whether in a group setting or a private session, I would highly recommend Amy. She makes working out really fun!

  • I love Amy’s classes! I have been attending twice a week for about nine months and I am stronger and feel more balanced than ever. Every class is different – you just never know what gift you are going to get that day! Amy also offers amazing mediation time at the end of her Tuesday class which is so relaxing and life-giving. You will never regret giving her classes a try. The other thing I appreciate about Amy is how she instructs her class – she explains and gives modifications for many levels, so that everyone has a great experience!

  • No matter your age, shape, or size, Amy makes you feel special and creates incredible classes and personal training sessions.

  • Best instructors I know work here! You won’t regret a lifestyle change like this!
