As a certified personal trainer, one of the challenges faced in dealing with new female clients (and some guys) is getting them to overcome their fear of lifting weights. I always ask, what’s so scary about lifting weights?
I usually get two answers:
1. “I don’t know what I’m doing.”
2. “I just want to tone, lose fat, and not get to “muscle-y”. That’s why I always do cardio to burn fat.”
