3 Indisputable Reasons for Women to Lift Heavy + 30 Day Challenge:
1) You are not alone! There are many women out there who want to get fit but they don’t have enough time or money. They feel intimidated when it comes to exercise because they think “I’m too fat” or “I just don’t have the time”.
But, if you’re reading this then you already know that’s not true. You are strong, you are smart, and you’re determined to get fit. If you do decide to go for a workout program, then you need to make sure that your goals align with yours. You may have different ones than other women out there.
So, what does it mean?
Well let me give some examples:
You want to lose weight so that you can look better naked in the mirror.
You want to look good in bed.
You want to improve your health and fitness level.
You are not afraid of failure, because you’ve already failed once before and got over it. That’s why you decided to try again and succeed again. You will never give up!
And yes, I am talking about YOU! (and no I’m not referring to the movie “Thelma & Louise” haha)
You want to prove others wrong, because they all think that you will fail. (
Who the hell cares what they think anyway?
You want to follow your dreams and become a fitness model. (I will discuss this later in this post)
So, if you are reading this I want to congratulate you for being proactive and doing something about your weight issues! Now it’s time to make a decision.
So, what is your decision going to be? Do you need to join a gym to get fit? Do you need a personal trainer to help you get in shape?
Maybe you just want to work out at home to save money. Well the best option for you depends on your personal preferences and goals. I can’t tell you what is best for you, but I can definitely give you some pros and cons of each so that you can decide.
Home Workout Programs:
Some people prefer to workout at home because it’s cheaper and more convenient. I mean you don’t need to worry about driving to the gym, waiting for the bus, or taking unpaid time off work. Also, you don’t need to worry about locker room “drama” nor will you have to wait for equipment.
The best part of working out at home is that you can also do it in privacy and nobody will judge you! YES! However, there are some downsides to working out at home. For example, it can get very boring if you do the same routine over and over again. You will also most likely not have access to professional equipment and won’t be able to find anything that can harm yourself with (believe me you will want to rip your hair out without this).
Working out at a gym has both pros and cons as well. Like I mentioned before, you will have access to lots of professional equipment. This can be good because can do things that would be hard (or impossible) to do at home.
You will also have access to trainers who can help push you to the next level. On the downside, some of these gyms can get very, very…well let’s just say “dirty”. You will have to be careful who you go to the gym with because you want to make sure that they are actually going to work out and not just sitting around socializing. I used to work out at a gym where I had a few friends, but most of them didn’t workout at all! Instead, they would just sit around and talk on their cell phones or just goof off in general. This made me very angry! Not only were they wasting my $, but it was hard to focus because these guys were loud. Not to mention all the idiots who would hog equipment and not let others use it. Some gyms are better than others, so you will have to do some research on the local gyms in your area.
Well, this concludes this post. I hope that you thought it was helpful! Please feel free to ask questions or give any opinions in the comment section!
Have a nice day!
