9 Reasons Everyone Should Lift Weights

How and Why? Why all the lies and BS!

Today and everyday; I’m still scratching my head at how much of lie the exercise industry is and how people still don’t understand the benefits of weight lifting!

And how people actually still think yoga classes, pilates, cycling classes and classes like body pump actually will change peoples physical appearance and the shape of their body without incorporating it with a weightlifting programme!

One thing that you need to understand is the body needs cardio combined with weightlifting for the body to take change in shape. Why can’t we just do cardio exercise? Your body does not adapt to it by keeping the muscle you have but rather it starts using muscle tissue for fuel; meaning you actually end up losing muscle when we only do cardio and no weight lifting. Thats why we don’t see hard toned bodies from people who choose running as a method to lose weight without weight lifting incorporated. So please if your a female or male and reading this and you are trying to lose weight I encourage that you have to make weight lifting the core of your weight loss programme.

​If you don’t believe me, here have a look at some of the results of some of my clients. http://www.maxfitbangkok.com/s…​​

I have only been doing personal training for one and half years of my life as I only realise about then that it was my true calling. I have operated this business for 8 months and I am going to plan to churn out over 100  client testimonials and transformation pictures within the next few months when some of my clients are happy to show some of their after pictures. Have a look below, I’m not gonna lie this is my gift! I am amazing at transforming peoples bodies, as I know how to get clients to the point where they understand everything through education on how to manipulate and change peoples bodies. I’m not bragging I just am the industry because I want to help people. The reason is there is so much misinformation out there. And cases like this……… so a woman contacted me the other day about how disheartened she was with dieting and the circles she keeps going through and it went something like this… she wrote to me

“Another Monday, here I go again on another attempt at dieting. Been dieting on and off for 43 years now. My mood is low I struggle with putting on weight  losing it and repeating this cycle over and over”. Guess what? I teach people and all my clients about sustainable weight loss to the point where this doesn’t have to occur.

I feel for this person and want to give them all the fat loss advice in the world and help them. And thats the case with all of people who I continue to meet everyday. I use to be a formerly overweight person and I know for a fact people don’t have to have body confidence issues or even be unhappy with their body as I can help anybody achieve the body of their dreams. I am living proof that 5% of people who actually manage to keep their weight off after losing it. Here is what my clients have had to say below.


If you watch a documentary about people who lift weights and you’ll likely be watching some of the world’s elite body builders hone their physique to abnormal largeness. Take a peek into your local gym and you’ll see something quite different. Sure, there may be a handful of body builders there, but they’re lifting right next to an accountant, a doctor, a office worker and a retiree. That’s because all these people realise one thing: lifting weights is for everyone.

But is weight lifting really for you? Here are nine reasons the answer is yes.

#1: You Get Happy

Yes, exercise of any kind gets the happy chemicals running through your body, but lifting weights seems to have an advantage on your happy level. Why? Lots of reasons that are listed below.

#2: You’re More Useful

You were born with a great affinity to do something. You may be gifted to argue cases in court, cook an amazing meal, or keep cool while caring for a dozen 5-year-olds. Lifting weights helps you do each of them better. On top of that, it gives you the capacity to lend a helping hand when someone is struggling to lift a heavy box or open a stuck door.

Suddenly, you’re not stuck waiting for help when a demanding task is put in front of you. Instead, you bend at the knees and get to work.

#3: You Get Focused

If you’ve ever struggled with trying to figure out what to do at the gym, I’m here to help. That includes lifting weights. As your strength and the amount of weight you lift increase, intense focus is required to avoid injury. This focus in the gym—if you let it—will carry over into your non-gym activities.

#4: Your Body

Lifting weights does so much for your physique. Push yourself hard enough and your body will amaze you constantly. But your physique isn’t the only beneficiary of weight lifting. Lifting helps your body fend off illnesses and injury by helping you shed unwanted kilograms, lowering your blood pressure, improving your heart function, and more.

#5: You Do the Impossible

When you start lifting weights, you can’t imagine lifting any more than you do in your first session. Three weeks later, you’ve already passed the impossible mark. By doing this over and over, you pick up a mental toughness and confidence that will aid you in all areas of life.

#6: You Eat Better

Have you been struggling to keep your daily calorie count down? Nothing helps you stay in line better than working out. Your regular weight-lifting routine makes you more aware of what you put in your body, making it easier to say “No” to those temptations that are always around the corner.

#7: Your Bones Get Stronger

While the first thing you may notice after lifting weights is stronger muscles, your bones are also secretly gaining strength at the same time. Since the risk of osteoporosis and broken bones only increases as you age, guarding against them with weight lifting only makes sense!

#8: Your Balance Improves

Staying on your feet may not be an issue today, but as you age, it will become one of your top priorities. This is especially true considering how often elderly people lose their balance and wind up with life-altering broken bones. Lifting weights at any age will give you a balance boost that will last throughout your life.

#9: Your Brain Function Increases

Believe it or not, people who lift weights aren’t the meatheads they’re made out to be. Quite the opposite. Research has proven that lifting weights actually has the power to improve your brain’s ability to do its job.
