I thought that would be a great pic to start this blog off with as there is so much to be told by it.
Rachel, like many of our female clients, came to us looking for a different approach to her training. 1 year later and she is banging out multiple unassisted chin up, deadlifting 100kg, capable of doing multiple push ups easily, snatching kettle bells, etc.
I think much of this would have seemed like out of her reach only 1 year ago.
As well as her new found strength, power, stamina and athleticism, Rachel is much leaner as you can see
And another great thing about Rachel’s physical fitness and physique overhaul is that a huge amount of women are also starting to see the same benefits by following professionally designed strength and conditioning programs.
Benefits that would never, ever be achieved by monotonous and boring cardio workouts which, up until quite recently, were the main component (along with ridiculous pink dumbbell exercise) of many womens exercise programs.
It’s now very common to see women:
- deadlifting 100+kg
- hanging off monkey bars
- doing handstands
- knocking out full body push ups
- olympic lifting
- pushing sleds
- swinging sledgehammers
- warming up with 16kg kettlebells
- doing 2 or 3 chin ups to get ready for their tough sets!!!
And guess what?
They all get leaner, more energetic and more capable of everyday tasks.
Their confidence goes through the roof.
They enjoy their training 100 times more.
They start to take on challenges that before they would never have considered.
They get less injuries- one of the most common reports we hear.
They handle life stressors much better.
The exercises that would be a good fit for you all depend on your starting level, previous training history, injury history, specific goals, and other factors. Not everyone in our gym does chin ups, swings kettle bells, deadlifts, etc.
These things can take time to build to, learn technique, etc. so don’t go to the gym today and tear into these things if they are alien to you.
Take home point is this ladies. If you are serious about longterm health, physical fitness, life-long wellbeing, achieving your fat loss goals, looking energetic and vibrant, etc. then you absolutely must start to train smarter than the ‘cardio, cardio, cardio-pink dumbbells are all I need’ crowd.
You must also commit to doing the work on a consistent basis.
If you can do these things you’ll see more progress in 4-6 months than you have in the last few years.
Thousands of women have made the switch over to proven training methods that consistently deliver results. You’d be doing yourself a massive favour to be one of them.
