Breaking the stigma associated with women and weightlifting

June 29, 2022

Why are women scared of lifting weights?

While getting stronger through fitness is probably more associated with men, most advertisements still get women to endorse food brands, home furnishings, and ostensibly gender-neutral products like shampoos. There is also an intimidation factor for women trying to get into fitness - and even by the sight of heavyweights - since it is a male-dominated discipline.

‘Cardio is the best way to lose weight’

The majority of women use cardio to lose weight and avoid developing a bulky figures. It's not even "the best" approach to reducing weight, according to recent studies.

Building confidence as women

In addition to promoting strength and weight loss, Guardian Fitness thinks that weight training boosts women's self-esteem.
Women have a variety of challenges, particularly in their responsibilities as mothers and wives, and lifting weights has changed the way they physically complete daily duties.

How do I get started?

Body weight exercises are the most effective way to begin lifting without feeling intimidated. Rather than starting with dumbbells right away, you should start with your own weight and work your way up to lighter or free weights once you can see that you're getting stronger. It's also crucial to start prioritizing fitness for women, even though four-hour commutes have become the norm across the nation. However, the COVID-19 pandemic's lockdowns enhanced women's awareness of the need to start caring for their own health through exercise. That being said, what matters most is being able to make connections with the right people who can help you along the way and feeling like a part of a community.
