Never Too Late To Start Weight Training

Thank you Kris, one of my newsletter subscribers, for sharing this video with all of us.  The video you are about to watch is very inspiring.  It is a story about a woman in her late forties who went through an emotional divorce and was going through many challenges.  She found weight training and not only has she found it, she has set the audacious goal of being the oldest weight lifter in the Olympics.

I am guessing the chances of her making the Olympics are quite low, but she went from lifting 60 lbs to lifting over 200 lbs.  She has lost over 100 lbs.  So even if she doesn’t make it to the Olympics, look at all she has accomplished.  So many times we fear making goals that are too big because we don’t want to look stupid or not achieve them.  Who cares if you achieve it or not, I can promise you, you will be further along then if you didn’t set the goal in the first place.

Enjoy the video.

If you were inspired by this story, I encourage you to create a crazy goal that many around you might laugh at.  Then write your goal in the comment section below.  I promise not to laugh and am committed to helping you reach that goal.

I love her story also from the stand point of how she has lost about 100 lbs by weight training.  I don’t know for sure but I am guessing she doesn’t do a lot of cardio.  It shows the power of building muscle to speed up metabolism.  If you want to take that next step and fall in love with weight training, I am definitely your trainer.  🙂  Whether you live in the Madison, WI area and can come to my Fit Fun Bootcamps, or if you don’t live in the area or would prefer to workout with DVDs from the comfort of your home, I have lots of programs for you.  To the left of this blog post there are images of DVDs, click on any of them to learn more.  Everyone of my programs is based mostly on weight training.

Besides sharing your crazy goal in the section below, feel free to ask any questions
