I started going to my school’s fitness center and, like every other female there, I spent all of my time on cardio machines. I knew how to use them, I didn’t have to think, and they felt safe. I would occasionally glance into the weight room and see all of the bigger guys working out. I’d think to myself that I should start lifting weights but felt intimidated and would make my way back to the familiar cardio machines.
I followed that pattern for a couple of months until I decided that I really wanted to tone myself and lifting weights was the only way to do so. Cardio wasn’t getting me the results I was looking for and I knew that I needed a change if I wanted to progress.
