My wife, Lisa, joined a gym a few weeks ago and I’ve been impressed and inspired by her dedication! She has not missed any workouts, and has refused to make excuses. Her workout partner has bailed out at the last minute 3 or 4 times now, and each time Lisa went to the gym by herself and hit the weights hard. Yesterday at work the air conditioner failed and she had a hot, miserable, stressful and exhausting day. I expected her to come home and take a long bath instead of going to the gym, but when I called her at the end of the day she said, “You know I’m going to be late, right? I’m hitting the gym tonight.” That’s my girl!

Not only has Lisa been lifting weights, but she’s also been eating much, much better! She’s letting me fix her meals again, and so she’s been eating healthy stuff like broccoli, salmon, eye of round, brown rice and chicken. I’m so happy for her!

Lisa felt that joining a gym with her friend instead of working out at home would suit her best. I can certainly understand that. Where she works out is not important – I’m just happy she’s lifting weights and eating better. Hopefully Lisa’s workout partner will be inspired by her dedication and stop skipping workouts!

Lisa is a classic ectomorph and has very low body fat. Weight training is going to make a big difference in her physique. Many women are afraid to lift weights because they are under the mistaken impression that they’ll get “bulky”. That’s totally false. Packing on muscle is quite difficult – especially for women. Most women simply do not have the genetics to get “bulky”, even if they want to. Thankfully Lisa not afraid of lifting and lifting hard. I’m confident that with her continued weight training and a sound diet she’s going to put on some muscle and take on an even more healthy, toned and fit look.
