Welcome to Lower Body Workouts for Women!
HOW I GOT INTO THE FITNESS WORLD
In high school I was an avid athlete, playing volleyball and running track throughout my 4 years. I am a competitive person and love accomplishing goals, especially in the sports world. As I entered my senior year, I soon realized that I needed to find a way to stay active, busy and fit once school ended. I joined a local gym where there was a large intimidation factor. I had never been in one before; there were so many large machines that I had never seen and some people looked like they walked out of a bodybuilding magazine! The first piece of gym equipment that looked familiar was the cardio machines; bikes, ellipticals, rowing machines etc. I walked towards an elliptical and spent an hour pedaling. I was dripping in sweat by the end!
As time went on and after countless days of doing cardio, my comfort level increased in the gym. I began to take notice of those around me lifting weights and becoming stronger/lifting heavier weights every time I saw them. I knew that I wanted to give weight lifting a try; especially given my competitive nature and drive to see results in the gym. In order to do so I enlisted in a personal trainer to help me achieve some of my fitness goals.
Things were going smoothly. I was sweating with every session with my personal trainer and feeling great. Most importantly, I felt motivated. However, I did notice that we were not doing the weightlifting exercises I was so interested in; I loved sweating and doing circuits of plyometrics, but I wanted to become even more sculpted and STRONG. My trainer had mentioned that I would not sweat as much if I did weight lifting and advised me to avoid it.
I DID SOMETHING OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE
I began to venture into the weightlifting side of the gym on my own. In order to obtain information, I would ask those around me for advice on exercises for certain muscles, how to properly and safely perform them and their diet to stay as physically fit as possible. I gained so much knowledge; over SO much time.
SCULPTING YOUR BODY MADE EASY
I want to make weight training/circuits, specifically lower body exercises, easier for those that are in the same position as I once was. It was difficult for me to obtain information in one specific place. I had to research numerous websites, magazines and ask countless people for their input on exercises. That time spent researching and obtaining information could have been used actually performing exercises.
