I was fortunate enough to go to a women’s networking event a few weeks ago. The event was in a very old hotel in Vancouver with a view of our harbor, The Sylvia Hotel. It was a sunny gorgeous day and there I was having lunch with a group of women in business.
To my surprise and delight, the guest speaker was a local personal trainer.
There are so many times that the health and wellness world and business world clash, but not that day.
As we sat in the warmth of the summer sun, having a lovely lunch we were treated to a presentation on why women should lift weights. I was so intrigued. I have been going to the gym for nearly six years and in that time, cardio has been used as a rest time between sets of heavy lifting. I have been lifting for all that time and I was still quite impressed with somebody else’s look at what I had been doing. Cool.
So, I asked her if she had her presentation written because I would love to share it, and she did. Here it is. Valri Cunningham is a Personal Trainer specializing in Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) to build strength on a solid foundation.
Enjoy this read and consider adding weights to your routine in the gym or at home.
