As women, it is so important for our longevity to weight train. Weight training can ensure you have healthy bones, low-stress levels, a supported cardiovascular system and keep your brain healthy. Nobody knows this better than today's superstar guest, CEO, and founder of Bikini Boss Fitness, author, and entrepreneurial fitness expert, Theresa Depasquale.
Theresa is here to debunk the myths around weight training for women and encourage us all to get up and move our bodies. She has a straight up, in your face approach to healing and fitness and is an advocate for the importance of movement and changing your mindset around working out.
It is amazing what your body is capable of when you are focusing on movement, prioritizing your body, and in the right mindset.

You don’t need to go extreme in order to commit to weight training. If you are ready to jump in, do the thing you are scared to do and start your body on a path to protecting your metabolic muscles, now is the time to start putting your body first.
