So many women make the mistake of walking into the gym and immediately heading to the treadmill or the elliptical. And often, they stay clear of the weight room, as if it had a large sign above stating “NO GIRLS ALLOWED.” Well, I have good news for you ladies you are definitely welcome here. Fitness is not all about burning fat, it’s also about changing your metabolism and gaining muscle. When you go workout in the weight room, you gain muscle to replace fat. And you speed up your metabolism which helps you digest foods faster and better. So next time you feel the urge to jump on the treadmill; go do some russian twists with a medicine ball or try out some of the machines in the weight room. Don’t worry, you can always go back to the cardio room after you’re done! Stay tuned for our next post about weight room workouts!
