Have you heard any of these exercise myths? Do you believe them?
1. Women will develop big muscles and look like men if they lift heavy weight.
2. Women do not have the physical makeup to develop strength as men do.
3. Women only need to “tone,” by using light weights, to “stay in shape.”

Ok, if some of you out there were honest, you have both heard some of these, AND you may subscribe to some of these beliefs. Stay tuned, I will tackle each one of these “myths” in upcoming blogs. Til then, keep exercising and stay strong!

Yours in Health and Fitness,

Hi. I'm a Certified Personal Trainer, Youth Conditioning Specialist, and Sports Conditioning author. I have worked with Girl and Women athletes from a wide-variety of sports (for example soccer, basketball, softball, running, tennis, lacrosse, and volleyball). I love working with female athletes, and writing about issues involving sports conditioning, exercise, and motivation. But, I also thoroughly enjoy my work with the many general fitness women clients I've trained over the past 17 years! Please visit my blogs (Female Athlete's Blog, and Women Losing It - Weight That Is! Blog) often as I hope to have things that interest women interested in improving their health and fitness whether it's for sport, functional fitness, or overall wellness and general health.
