The Ladies Workout Express Gym in Swinton knows very well that keeping a healthy lifestyle is important for everyone at any age. We’ve teamed up with a professional and experienced Wellness organisation to help you improve your lifestyle.

The Wellness programme that we have introduced into our ladies only gym in Manchester doesn’t just benefit you, but your family and community too. You’ll receive personal measurements of your body fat, Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), water percentage, muscle mass,  bone mass, metabolic age, visceral fat % and physical rating.

The average person has around 20-35% body fat, which is deemed to be a healthy level. Having a body fat ratio in this range means you will not only be healthier and will be likely to live longer, but it will help to reduce your chances of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and reduce your blood pressure so that you can enjoy a healthier, longer life too.

Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the minimum level of energy that your body needs when at rest to function effectively.  Did you know that around 70% of your daily calorie intake is used for BMR? You burn calories when sleeping, and the more vigorous exercise you do, the more calories you will burn. This is because your skeletal muscle accounts for around 40% of your body weight, acting as your metabolic engine and using up more energy. Your BMR is dependent on your overall muscle percentage. This means the higher the muscle mass that you have, the higher your basal metabolic rate will be. Everyone’s metabolic rate changes as they get older, so it is important that you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle in order to keep your BMR stable.

We see so many people who may look fit and healthy, but have a higher metabolic age, which in fact means that improvements need to be made. You can lower your metabolic age by increasing the amount of exercise that you do. This will build muscle and reduce fat, therefore, improving your metabolic age.

The four main points to remember when improving your overall Wellness is:

  1. Have a balanced diet
  2. Exercise regularly
  3. Drink plenty of water
  4. Set your fitness goals
