Fitness Tip of the Week

Hit the weights ladies.  You will not “bulk up.”  Women don’t naturally have enough testosterone to build the bulk.  While you’re at it, increase the resistance.  Your muscles need resistance to change, so up the weight.  You should feel like you can’t do many more when you hit the last few repetitions on your last set.  As an added bonus, you will continue to burn calories from your work out even after you’re done!

If you’d like to get set up on a strength training program or revamp the one you’re currently doing, come see me and we’ll get you going; remember, you get 2 free training sessions with your membership!
