Home Strength Training
Strength training has a variety of benefits. It burns fat, tones and sculpts the body, and boosts metabolism. If you don't have time to go to the gym, home strength training is just as beneficial, provided you have proper technique.
Cardio and Strength Training
"The importance of professionally guided strength training is often overlooked as part of a regular workout.
Proper strength training allows you to get faster results in less time, while minimizing injury.
Contact us, and we will be happy to show you all of the fitness benefits this training adds to achieving your health goals."
"Barring a Northeaster, my Homebodies trainer and I always work out in Carl Shurtz Park and along the East River. I am the one who really likes to be outside, but my trainer is always by my side, rain or shine.... lugging the bands, jump rope, water and more!
The personalized attention and reliability of the talented trainers is just what I need to keep me focused on achieving my goals. Their appropriate and amazing flexibility is perfect for my busy, ever changing schedule. I am so glad I got the inside track on Homebodies!"

Those who include strength training in their exercise routine lose up to 20 percent more weight than those who don't. HomeBodies has provided home strength training for over 30 years. Our personal trainers are ready to work with you either at home, the gym at your building, your local fitness center, or at your office.
Strength training is very important as part of an overall fitness routine. It uses both weight and resistance training to build the body and increase the functions of the body.
A regular training program not only increases muscle mass and boosts metabolism for more efficient calorie burning, it also:
- Develops strong bones by increasing bone density.
- Aids in weight loss by boosting and speeding your metabolism, enabling you to burn calories more efficiently.
- Reduces the symptoms of many chronic conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, depression, and back pain.
- Protects muscle mass. Muscles shrink with age. Using weight and resistance training is one way to slow this process.
- Lowers risk of heart disease
- Lowers bad cholesterol and blood pressure
- Boost the immune system resulting in less colds
And of course, it results in firmer, well-defined muscles.
Exercises for strength training at home can easily be done with minimal equipment. There are exercises you can do with your own body weight as well as using resistant bands. By purchasing a few items such as a physio ball, free weights and a body bar you can add a lot of variety.
To challenge your balance training, you could also purchase a Bosu, foam rollers or some instability equipment.
A HomeBodies strength trainer is well versed on home gym equipment sets.
These home gyms allow a user to isolate a particular muscle group or particular muscles and work them with much more resistence.
Women have often relied solely on cardio training and a low-calorie diet to lose weight and reshape their bodies. It has been found that adding resistance training and weight training to a woman's workout enables her to sculpt and tone more rapidly.
Females benefit from woman strength training as it reduces the risk of osteoporosis, increases the metabolic rate, and tones the existing muscles. Homebodies personal trainers can create a customized woman strength training program for you.
Men Strength Training
Men strength training is the most popular way for men to reshape and sculpt their bodies. Men have the advantage of being able to bulk up or tone up, whichever they prefer. HomeBodies personal trainers can help men create the body they envision. Men strength training enables men to build their arm muscles, build shoulder and back muscles using lateral pull downs, rowing, and more.
Our personal trainers will work with you to create a custom program that is safe and highly effective, even if you are a beginner. Want to get in shape, but don't know where to start? Give HomeBodies a call.
Of course as much as our personal trainers teach the benefits of training for strength, they know that cardio training and strength training go hand-in-hand. Cardio gets the heart rate up and weight and resistance training helps keep it up.
Circuit training that involves moving from cardio machines to weight machines and then back to cardio machines is one program that is popular with our clients.
Our certified NYC personal trainers like to get the heart rate pumping with treadmills, bikes, or ellipticals, then break for a session on the machines, then put you back on the cardio equipment. Each circuit training program is customized to fit you and your needs. So whether you are a beginner or an expert, man or woman, contact us today and see what HomeBodies can do to help you become fit and healthy. HomeBodies can design a cardio and strength training program just for you.

Personal Trainer, Joanne
I have always been an athlete so staying fit was a healthy by-product. I am a teacher at heart so whatever I learn I like to teach others. I became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer over 15 years ago.
I worked as a trainer in a local YMCA and a Physical Therapy Office and became interested in doing triathlons. I have been a triathlon coach for over 10 years. I continue to compete and have been blessed with a level of performance that has taken me to Hawaii for the Ironman World Championships.
I enjoy helping people reach their goals both in fitness and in triathlons while providing a safe and supportive environment.

With proper instruction, free weights and exercise machines can help you develop:
- Arm options, such as bicep/tricep exercises, curl benches, and cables.
- Leg options, such as a seated calf, leg extension and curl, calf and leg squat, and leg press.
- Chest and shoulder options, such as a pec deck, lateral shoulder, incline press, and shoulder press.
- Back options, such as back extension, lateral pull down, and seated row.
Both a home gym and your building fitness center may have benches, free weights, and medicine balls. HomeBodies personal trainers are familiar with, and certified in, all types of exercises for strength training to help you quickly attain your goals.
Women Strength Training
HomeBodies also specializes in women strength training. Many women overlook this crucial form of exercise because they are afraid of "bulking up their bodies." In actuality, women do not have the amount of testosterone men have. Testosterone is needed to bulk up female bodies.
"I always tell people, the best exercises are the ones you will do. And the best diet is the one that you can stick to! HomeBodies Certified Personal Trainers will help you develop a healthy relationship with where you are, and where you want to be."
