Strength training is exercising with the goal of increasing your physical strength.
From own understanding, strength training is the building up of muscles and muscles burn fat.
Strength training makes you feel good and look good. Strength training with diet and cardio burns fat more than cardio and diet alone.
Challenging your muscles with strength training (also called resistance training) exercises 2 or 3 times each week is all that is needed to improve the strength and tone of your muscles – and gain you several long-term health benefits – provided you keep up the routine!

So this week I decided to try my hands in some weights and boy did I almost cry. My gym instructor is mean!!!
One other thing strength training prevents is sagging skin and it promotes a toned form.
You should try it out.
