For Women: Getting Started With Lifting

Stepping on a lifting floor for the first time can be quite intimidating for most women.  You look around and see huge dudes grunting and throwing around more weight than you possess in your entire body and you seriously consider turning around and b-lining to the cardio equipment. Stop!  Don’t join the herds of people camping out for hours on end on the elliptical machines.  In my opinion, they resemble gerbils running in a wheel – mindlessly moving, but not really getting anywhere.  Whatever your fitness goals may be – to lose weight, tone up, get healthier, etc. lifting can help you achieve those goals more efficiently.
