Just try it one day. Walk through those doors, head straight to the weight lifting area... and get going. Get your 3-15 pound weights and set up your own area. No one will look at you strangely (I promise). Just zone out from your surroundings and tune into the task at hand: losing weight, toning your body, and strengthening your body from the bones out.
We have a different hormonal make up than men, which makes it almost impossible to build bulky muscles like guys do. Lifting lighter weights and doing a substantial amount of reps with proper stretching afterwards will build your muscular endurance and give you long lean muscles like a dancer.
Try some of these moves the next time you go to the gym, park, or beach. Have fun feeling the burn and knowing that adding weights to your workout will add years to your life.
