#27: Women’s Obstacles to Getting into Strength Training, Michelle’s PT from Hell/Heaven & Our Gym Fashion Addiction

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-as5qb-92d544

Strength training is exploding as more and more people realise the fitness, longevity, health, fat burning and body composition benefits. We can thank CrossFit, Functional Training and Instagram for this popularity in the Barbell.

Whilst the fitness and training niche is bigger than ever, it’s still small comparatively. And for many women, the idea of Strength Training is met with enormous resistance. Even though the benefits are getting better understood, there’s an inertia to move from class-based ‘aerobic’ workouts to heavy compound lifting.

Episode Topic —> Why is this? And what needs to be done to educate, enable and motivate Women to give Strength Training a go?

Michelle and Steve discuss this big question, from a woman’s perspective. Michelle answers:

   1- Rewind – What would have motivated and made you comfortable to get into strength training?

   2- How would you or a stranger sell the concept of Strength Training to friends who only do classes?

   3- What was you assumption of PT’s before you knew any?

   4- Who would be your PT from Hell?

   5- What qualities, attributes and skills would make up your ideal Personal Trainer?

 But first, we kicked off our chat by talking about our fashion mistakes and addiction – from my Compression Tights and new Weightlifting Shoes to Michelle’s out of control Trainer Game.
