Women on Weights

The 2018 Women on Weights 2.0 just wrapped up another successful year at the Rec Center. This program takes place each January, meeting twice a week for six weeks. Dixie and Joe taught everyone the importance of being serious about strength training on a regular basis. Not only did the group get weekly workouts to practice, but were taught how and encouraged to write out realistic goals and training plans for themselves. The phrase, ‘Lift like You Mean it’ is a good motto of the program. Knowing the ‘WHY’ and ‘HOW’ of specific workouts or exercises and being knowledgeable to train independently is one objective of the program. Other lecture topics included strength training principles, important definitions, ways to change the intensity of a training program, nutrition and macro nutrients, and lower crossed syndrome.
