    I found that I was going to the gym, doing my cardio, then leaving. My workplace has a wellness program. I signed up to work with a coach. She asked me if I was getting any weight training in and I said "sometimes". We talked about it and since then, I've been doing my weight training each session.

    What's different? I do 10-15 minutes of a warm up on the recumbent bike and then I do the weight training. I finish with my cardio. I'm on my third week of this.

    As a 50 year old, I need the weight training. - 12/7/2016   2:06:37 PM
