Siobhan Byrne: 'Strength training is the fountain of youth'

I am sure a lot of you are struggling without the gym but I can assure you that you can get an excellent workout at home. Some of our most well-known clients use virtual personal training with us, just using bodyweight, as it can be so effective.

If you read these pages regularly, you will know I am an avid strength training fan.

Why? Because at age 41, strength training is the fountain of youth.
