Episode 37 - STRENGTH TRAINING FOR WOMEN with Personal Fitness Trainer Chelsey Rose

Does lifting weights make you 'bulky'? No! Strength training is the best way to lose weight, gain strength, and grow your confidence! Personal trainer Chelsey Rose is a big proponent of strength training for women and gives tips on how to stay consistent and motivated even when life gets in the way.


No time? No problem - even if you are not getting enough sleep, your motivation fades, and you barely have time for a workout, you can still get results. We all know it’s good for us to move our bodies, strengthen it, and to stretch, but most people have a hard time working out consistently.


Does this sound familiar: you start out excited and motivated, but as soon as life gets crazy and you're feeling overwhelmed, exercise falls off the priority list. It's all about choosing the right exercise for your goals and being consistent. (A 30 minute workout is 1/48th of your day!) Tune in if you want pro tips to 'finding time', you're looking to lose weight, gain muscle and be done with body shaming, enjoy "treat meals" instead of "cheat meals", and remind yourself that exercise is a privilege and a reward, NOT a punishment.
