Years ago, I was what one would call a CARDIO JUNKIE! All I did was run, spin, or the elliptical.
It was an amazing way to for me to deal with stress & anxiety. By moving my body really fast, I felt like I was catching up to my mind!!
It wasn't until I started studying for my personal training certification that I discovered how WRONG I had been training myself the past few years! WAY too much cardio, not enough rest, and I was making my body weaker in the long run opposed to STRONGER. And I don't know about you, but I want to be stronger! I want to be able to thank myself when I'm older!
So.... WHY Weight Train?
After studying and learning about the importance and benefits of weight training, I became excited to make it apart of my regime. When I lift weights, I focus on the muscle I am working, and I feel empowered knowing that I'm making myself stronger!
