12 Reasons Why Women Should a Gym
- You Will Lose Weight
By combining strength machines with cardio you will burn a lot of calories. You will work your entire body, tone up your muscles and speed up your metabolism, which will result in burning fat and losing weight. This simple reason might be enough for most of the women to start working out, but there is much more.
- You Will Feel Better
You will look better and this will instantly make you feel better. But that’s not all. After a good workout your body will release endorphins, which will give you the same sensations as eating some chocolate or a good meal!
- You Will Gain Strength
Many women think that if they start going to the gym they will become too muscular. But don’t worry, ladies. Gaining big, strong muscles takes much more time and effort than some people think. However, you will develop muscle tone and definition, which will make you look great.
- You Will Decrease the Risk of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a very bad disease that strikes mainly in women. Weight training can increase spinal bone mineral density and combined with a proper diet will fight against osteoporosis. Other things that might help you would be our amazing stretching station!
- You Will Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease
Research has shown that strength training can improve your cardiovascular health by lowering LDL (bad cholesterol), raising HDL (good cholesterol) and lowering blood pressure. If you add cardio to that, the results will be even better.

By training hard you will inevitably sweat. And this is a good thing because it will eliminate toxins from your body.

No matter if you are sixteen or sixty, it’s never too late or too early to start going to the gym! The exercises and the workout strategy can be adapted depending on age, experience or purpose like losing weight, toning up or gaining strength.
- You Will Improve Your Attitude and Get Rid of Stress
Studies have shown that strength training improves mental health and reduces depression. Women who work out feel more confident, have more energy and complete everyday tasks easier.
