Weightlifting CorrectlyThe staff of Total Fitness of Cambridge, Minnesota, wants you to know that our mission is to empower you to achieve optimal wellness so that you can be the best version of yourself. We have the experience and expertise to help you work toward the goal of total fitness, but not on our terms—we help you on your terms.

If you are ready to make the commitment to getting fit and healthier, we are here to help. We believe that the world is made a better place when the people in it feel better about their health. One important way to achieve overall health is incorporating weight training into your exercise regimen. But weight lifting should not be approached merely as a way to bulk up. Nor is weight lifting just for people who already possess great physical strength. Weight training is, in its most basic form, an effective means of increasing strength by forcing the muscles of our bodies to experience resistance, which translates to greater physical strength. But because so many people have been seduced by the idea that bigger is better, weightlifting has suffered in the perceptions of people who consider it something that is not for everyone.

Safely Add Weightlifting to Your Exercise Regimen

We approach weight training with you in mind. The program we work with you to create begins with your strengths and limitations; it will be challenging, but not overwhelming. Your body benefits from physical stress when it is designed to build and develop and heal, rather than when it is pushed to or beyond its limits by trainers who are motivated by proving how powerful and directive they are. The Total Fitness way is to facilitate your best possible health by using weight training as a tool that works for your benefit.

Weight training can be personalized to help you build muscle mass, of course. But it can also be used to help you recover from injury, to reduce blood pressure, and perhaps above all to reduce the day-to-day stress that builds up in all of us occasionally. If you elect to work with us and include weight training in your health plan, you can expect above all else that we will teach you proper weightlifting techniques so that your body is challenged, rather than being pushed to the point of injury.
