The Wellness Epidemic

Many women want to avoid lifting weights because they’re afraid of them or don’t understand how they are going to benefit from them. If you don’t lift weights, you cannot sculpt your body into the shape that you want it to be. Resistance training is beneficial because lifting weights promotes a type of muscle growth known as “myogenic” muscle growth. This kind of muscle growth increases the mass and density of everyone’s muscularity, male or female, which gives you your shape, which you will retain even after you’ve left the gym. If men and woman were simply willing to maintain a fundamental resistance training regiment and a clean diet free of processed food many of the chronic issues with wellness would dissipate on their own.

Key Takeaways:

  • The health and wellness industry is booming while, ironically, many Americans do not have access to very basic health care
  • The standard to be considered a “fit” person is continually becoming more and more extreme (i.e. must work out more, must buy more products, etc.)
  • Celebrities (such as Gwyneth Paltrow) and other influential figures make huge impacts on the direction and trajectory of the health market industry
