I’ve been lifting weights on and off for 15 years. I blog about what’s worked for me and what I’ve learned on my own and as a personal trainer. I know how to get stand-out muscle definition, how to lift safely, and how to eat clean.
There are two more things I know about: How to have fun lifting weights, and how to be a woman in the weight room.
Many, many women are intimidated by the weight room. Both men and women are bored by it. Some people can’t find the time. Others don’t know where to start.
Whatever it is that holds you back, I want to show you someone who not only benefits from it, but enjoys it.
I’ve heard stories of women being stared down in weight rooms and having rude comments made to them. Let me tell you, if you’re confident of you’re doing, you won’t let anyone do those things to you. It just takes a little education and the confidence follows.
When I walk into the weight room, I own it. Most of the time, I’m the only woman in a roomful of testosterone. Not only do I know what I’m doing, but you better get out of my way. If I’m using those weights, I’m going to say so. If you’re using something I need, I’m going to ask you how many more sets you have. You can get respect at the gym and as a consequence more respect for yourself.
When you lift weights, you feel strong, and I don’t mean just physically.
I want you to lift weights not only for your health, but to enjoy seeing those results. While you’re working hard at your cardio and lifting routine, I want you to get insane satisfaction seeing muscle definition emerge in your body. Feel stronger and more flexible. Not be afraid of lifting something heavy and not injure yourself by moving in daily life.
How badly do you want it? If you’re walking on the treadmill, doing the same exercises over and over, or not lifting heavy enough weights, you won’t see results. You need to push yourself to get strong. Do you want it?
That’s it – that’s my agenda. I love helping you find joy in the strength you feel both inside and out when you pump iron.
Now, let’s stop talking and start planning your next routine.
