Don’t believe it

I’ve got to warn you, there are myths still going around about strength training.

The truth is that strength training is one of the absolute best things you can do for your health and appearance.

If you’ve fallen for these 5 myths then you’re missing out on tremendous potential results.

It’s a Myth…that Muscle Turns Into Fat

Why would anyone want to build muscle if it could morph into fat after a span of disuse? Rest assured that this is a myth of the highest order.

Muscle tissue is muscle tissue. Fat tissue is fat tissue. One will never become the other.

It’s a Myth…that Strength Training Doesn’t Burn Fat

On the contrary, muscle mass is your number one ally against fat gains.

A pound of muscle burns 10-20 calories each day, while you’re just living and breathing. Regular strength training helps you increase your muscle mass as well as preserve existing muscle mass, turning you into a fat burning machine.

It’s a Myth…that Lifting Weights Makes Women Bulk Up

Yes, strength training increases the amount of muscle on your body; so many women take this to mean that their body will become body-builder-esque, which is quite the look you’re going for.

The truth is that the female body simply doesn’t contain high enough levels of testosterone to produce that level of results without a very focused and dedicated effort.

The tighter, toned figure of a recreational female weight lifter is every bit feminine.

It’s a Myth…that Strength Training Is For Young People Only

Ha, that’s a used-up excuse that senior citizens across the globe have shattered.

Assuming that your doctor has given you the OK, you have much to gain from a regular weight lifting routine.

Improved balance and coordination, better strength and flexibility, and a decreased risk of osteoporosis are just the beginning.

It’s a Myth…that Light Weights and High Reps Tone Best

This myth, popularized in the 90’s, that very high repetitions of very light weights would result in a toned physique, has become outdated. These high repetitions will increase your muscular endurance but will not add strength or tone.

We now know that in order to truly challenge your muscles, heavier weights with lower repetitions are a must. Start with an 8-10 repetition range and push your muscles with each set.

Including strength training as a part of your fitness routine is essential for achieving a fit and toned body.

My custom-made fitness programs remove all of the guesswork for you. I know what works, and I make it my mission to see you reach your goals.

The Many Forms of Strength Training

Resistance training is no longer limited to dumbbells and barbells. Each of the following are ways to challenge your body with resistance:

  • Kettle bells
  • Medicine Balls
  • Exercise Bands
  • Weight Machines
  • Body Weight Training
  • Suspension Trainers

Serves 4

¼ cup fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 Tablespoon olive oil, divided
4 (5-oz) salmon fillets
2 zucchini, sliced into half moons
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced

2. In a small bowl combine the lime juice, garlic, chili powder, cumin and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Pour half of the spice mixture over the tops of the salmon fillets.

April 4, 2017:

Yesterday my daughter asked if I still had any of my "really big pants". Of course I do, every time I've cleaned out my closet I've kept them as a reminder. These pants were sort of my breaking point. They were a size 20, the largest pair of pants I had ever bought. I cried when I bought them, and they were the only pair of jeans that fit me for several months....until one day I barely got them buttoned. For several weeks I got to where I only wore stretchy pants and long tunics, because they were the only things comfortable. In December 2015 I called Fitwerks and talked with Chad, probably for longer than he really wanted to talk to me. I told him all of my excuses (2 knee surgeries, three babies, working crazy hours, between work and home and school activities for the kids I had no time to do anything) and even broke down in tears on the phone. He suggested I come in and talk with him face to face, this was the scariest part for me....it came time to weigh-I hadn't stepped on a scale in months and was absolutely mortified when it read 234 pounds. My body fat was over 40% 😳. He asked me what my goal was-and I told him honestly I'd be happy with 10-15 pounds, but if I could get back under 200 it would be amazing. I'm now well under 200 pounds 😉 and never dreamed I could be anywhere get close to where I am today...and while I am proud of my accomplishments, and the weight loss is a tangible measure of that success, the weight loss is not even on my top 10 list of things I love about Fitwerks. When I hit 50 pounds (it took 16 weeks), I took pictures of myself and my son in these pants together. But the question last night wasn't about anyone else fitting in them-it was could I fit both legs in just one side of the pants. Well.....​
