The Top 7 Benefits of Adding Muscle

Why should someone add muscle to their body?

The short answer: It’s essential for your overall well-being, especially here at Instinct Fitness Petone, where we focus on functional fitness for everyday life.

We’re not talking about becoming a bodybuilder. We’re referring to adding lean muscle that enhances your strength, agility, and overall health. It’s about being fit and capable, not just looking a certain way.

You might have heard about “sarcopenia”—a gradual loss of muscle mass and strength. This condition can start as early as your 30s. But here’s the great news: Strength training at Instinct Fitness Petone works at any age, and it’s never too late to start.
