Ask the staff at the gym to show you how to use the machines - it is in their interests and yours that you know how to use them safely.


The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Hey everyone!

I am a 19 year old female just starting out on my healthy living journey! Trying to lose some weight and get a bit stronger all at the same time.

So I am going into the gym everyday, and I see all these crazy strength and weight machines, so far I've been doing all cardio, but at I would love to start strength training!
Does anyone know any good beginner strength training programs?
I would love to see some stuff other people have been doing :)
