Not only does lifting weights improve your health, but it increases your physical strength and appearance so you have a better self-image about your body and physical capabilities.
As you get stronger and accomplish your training goals (lifting heavier weights) you get accustomed to success and achieving your goals. This confidence spreads to other aspects of your life. Strength training helps your mind, body, and spirit and helps you become ready to take on new challenges and cope with any situation life can throw at you.
