You HAVE to weight train!!!

It is not about IF you lift weights anymore. It is about the fact that you HAVE to lift weights!! It is imparetive as we get older to weight train! Your body needs it to be the healthiest it can be! Ask yourself: Am I weight training, and if I am not, WHY?

I mean it, if you aren't weight training you need to start right now! It is NEVER to late to step into the fountain of youth I call Weight Training!!


Why weight train, you say?

You will burn TONS of calories!!

Even though cardio burns more calories during the exercise time, lifting weights will burn more calories OVERALL. When you build muscle (which is what you are doing when you weight train), it takes more energy (calories) for your body to maintain muscle cells than it does fat cells. By lifiting weights you add more LEAN muscle mass and that will boos the heck our of your metabolism and you will be a fat burning machine


You will Maintain your muscle Between the ages of 30 and 70, women lose an average of 22 percent of their total muscle. Over time that muscle void can often be filled with fat . One pound of fat takes up so much more space in your body than muscle. So, even though the scale may go down, your pant size could go up! We do want that crap ..LOL


You will build stronger bones Lifting weights is a huge defender against osteoporosis!! This is huge for women especially since 10 million Americans are affected by this and 80% are WOMEN!! Let's lift weights and engage muscles that pull on the tendon, and in turn pulls on the bones and makes them stronger!! No falling and we can't get up around here!!!!


Your heart will be healthier " As muscles contract, blood is pushed back up to the heart. The heart then recirculates the oxygenated blood back to the muscles, which keeps the cardiovascular system in better working conditions. Plus maintaining lean muscle mass enables you to do more work further enhancing this effect" Irv Rubenstein PHD Exercise physiologist! This guy knows what he is talking about and who doesn't want a healthy heart??


You may reduce your risk for diabetes! Lifting weights help to improve the way your body processes sugar!! Say what? This is huge!!!


As you can see there are several reasons that strength training is a MUST in your life!! My favorite reasons to weight train are: Because you will become STRONG!! Way stronger than you could even imagine! Physically, mentally and emotionally ( Just ask any of my clients who have done at least 8 weeks with me)


You will become even more confident and feel EMPOWERED!! I don't need any help carrying the dog food off of the shelf, thank you! Oh, you need that concrete poured, I got you . Seriously, you don't have to depend on others for tasks!! Plus, you just feel like a bad A&$!!!


Last but not least you will feel connected!! A connection like no other to others who are working as hard as you do and trying to reach goals!! Over the almost 10 years I have taught groups of women to weight train, there has never been drama, never been jealousy, never been anything that can happen when a group of women get together. Do you want to know why? Because they are all their for common goals, they all know the hard work it takes, and the dedication everyone is putting forward. You will be respected and needed in these groups!! It is AMAZING!!

So whether you weight train with me or get private lessons with Arnomold Swarzeneger!! Get going TODAY!!! Don't wait and it is NEVER too late to receive the benefits this wonderful training can do for you!!


P.S. If you want to join me for my next 8 Week session of Women on Weights (Virtual), comment below or message me and let's chat about starting this journey together!! I GOT YOUR BACK!! Let's do this!!!!
