Getting started with a fitness routine can seem like such a laborious task.  It may take some planning and organization to get you started, but once that work is out-of-the-way what is left is you and your goals.  The question is: are you willing to work for it? This is my first post in a series that was inspired by my latest VIP group: fitness for women.

Our goals, eating, and body composition is different from men.  Weight just seems to fall off them when they start a consistent fitness routine.  For women, it just seems harder.   But what I’ve learned in the last eight years as a fitness coach and fitness junkie proves that it isn’t harder, it’s just that we are following male eating plans, workout routines, and advice.  We are gloriously different.  I went live on Facebook today to talk about fitness for women.  I wanted to set the record straight that our goals can be reached by focusing on how our bodies can change from a workout routine, eating plan and hard work that is specific to women.  You can watch the entire video here:

Women Are Different.

We are glorious pieces of art.  We must chisel our bodies and treat them like they are priceless.  This is why I recommend that all women starting a weight lifting routine of some sort.  No, you won’t get bulky or super muscular.  Ever see Victoria’s Secret commercial?  Those women work their butts off and they are lifting weights to build their bodies.  The reason why we won’t get bulky is that you aren’t taking enhancing drugs and we have less testosterone in our system than men.

Your eating plan also makes a huge difference in getting results.  You aren’t going to be stuffing your faces with thousands of calories to put on pounds either.  You will be eating at a deficit to ensure fat loss and the addition of lean muscle in its place.

How To Get Started

 

Fitness For Women #01: Introduction To Fitness

Fitness for women starts with a goal in mind.  It’s not about the number on the scale. Although you should track it every two weeks.  It’s more about discovering your power, having more energy and looking thinner.  You can also measure your body fat percentage and take measurements.  Those are the most accurate ways to see changes.  The scale is a liar.

In this series, I want to teach you how you can get started on your weight lifting routine.  The equipment you will need, the nutrition you should follow and the results you want to see.  But first ask yourself these questions:

  • What is your goal?
  • How do you want to feel?
  • What do you want to look like?
  • Do you have a pair of pants to use as a goal?
  • How long can you work out and how many days?
  • What healthy foods do you like to eat?

I look forward to sharing what I have learned and what I have personally experienced with weight lifting and why you as a woman should start a weight lifting routine.  It is truly the best way to change the way your body looks without spending hours in the gym or running on a treadmill.
