A lot of my friends and women I work out with in group exercise class often ask me about the weight room. During these conversations they usually lower their voice and ask to talk to me in private. In very dismissive and sometimes apologetic tones they say, “Maybe one of these days I’ll try the weight room but I don’t want to get too bulky,” or “I want to try lifting weights but the equipment is intimidating and I don’t know what I’m doing,” and most often…”I feel stupid down there. It’s scary”.

In my job I am surrounded by amazing fitness professionals. My coworkers are highly trained, multi-certified, and incredibly motivational…BUT I am not one of them!
