It’s fair to say that many ladies, especially ladies who are new to training, don’t feel comfortable about going to a unisex gym. This can be for a variety of reasons. Maybe they are embarrassed about how they look. Maybe they think that the ‘fit looking’ people on the treadmill are looking at them. Maybe they don’t want to be in a gym which is predominantly full of men. Maybe they have had bad experiences with instructors or Personal Trainers in the past. These reasons, plus many more, are enough to put so many ladies off getting fit, meaning they then revert to the comfort of what they know, which often means little or no exercise, comfort eating and negative feelings towards their bodies.

Is it better to do cardio first or weights during a training session? What is the ideal order? Well, it really depends on what you’re trying to achieve. Whichever discipline we do first is where we will have the greater intensity, so if you want to get more out of your cardio session, then do that first, otherwise you can fatigue very quickly doing weights leaving you spent for the fat burning part.
Fat Loss – studies have shown that doing resistance exercise first will deplete blood glucose and muscle glycogen, meaning you will tap into your fat stores a lot faster when your cardio phase begins. Having said that, if the cardio work is where the majority of the fat is going to be burned, then maybe you want to be at your highest energy levels for that. The good news is that if you’re doing both in your training session, there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to burn fat either way.
