Gym Workouts For Women

This is no secret, but gym workouts for women can be a scary undertaking for the gym novice. However, there is no need to fret pretty woman, with a few tips and guidelines, you can comfortably find your way around the gym for a great workout. Even the most timid of women to become gym ready with a few easy steps.

I'll keep this basic to intermediate so women from all walks of life can find value in this article.


The most basic, but maybe the most important piece of advice I can give is to find the right gym. That's right, find the right gym. Maybe you want to workout where no men will be around....find an all women's gym. All women's gym's do exist, but they are not as available than traditional co-ed gyms. If you can't find an all women's gym and want to workout with mostly women, look for gyms that offer women only sections of their gym.

If you decide you want to work out in the traditional co-ed gym, make sure you are able to workout without distraction. I'm gonna let you in on a little secret....some guys seem to think that the gym is a perfect place to practice their "game". By all means, feel free to mingle and flirt, just don't sacrifice a good workout to talk to all the meat heads!


Understand/figure out what your goals are and find a workout plan that will help you accomplish you goals. This is key because if you don't achieve your goals, you are more likely to quit going to the gym. If you quit going to the gym you will wind up selling your hair to a wig shop......Don't sell your hair to a wig shop!! (lol, direct tv reference).

Finding a plan for gym workouts for women can be tricky. Many options are available and it can be confusing to know what will work and what will fall short. Here is a good "rule of thumb" to keep in mind when deciding on a workout: If your gym workout plan causes women to look like a man, stay away from that plan (unless you want your body to resemble a man's physique).

A good gym workout for women will include a good amount of interval cardio and strategic weight lifting to help you tone and firm your body. Keep this in mind as you search for a good workout plan.


Stick with your plan. Don't give up. Live happy!! That's it. Once you find a good gym workout plan that helps you build a sexy, toned, feminine physique, stick with it.

I hope this is the beginning of a great future of fitness for all you women. Gym workouts for women can be intimidating, but you can do anything you put your mind too.....I believe in you!!
