Before we get into this, let's get one thing straight from the start:  There is absolutely no denying that women who lift are strong yet feminine.  Empowered and happy, as well as confident, bold and filled with a deep sense of pride for what they do.  To say the least!  So if you can take only one thing away from this article, let it be that weightlifting goes far beyond the physical.

In addition to this, and despite what the majority may say or think.  We are not 'bulky', 'masculine' or 'unhealthy'.  Such misconceptions are circulated only by those who know absolutely nothing about what it truly takes, or even what it is, to be a woman who lifts. 

So rule number 1: Don't take lifting advice from somebody who doesn't even lift!  Instead, make up your own mind.  See the evidence below for yourself.  These are all real women who lift.  All of these women are proudly moving some serious weight.  And furthermore; they're not even sorry...

Because women who lift are not afraid of hard work...





And we are always proud of our gains because we know exactly what it took to earn them...



Know that, no matter your starting point, you too can achieve truly remarkable things...



The reality is; many women are completely transforming their bodies every single day.  And this is all thanks to their decision to start lifting heavy!  Note that by switching your focus to building muscle, you are able to completely alter your physique and boost your metabolism.  As a result, you will, without a doubt, feel like a whole new woman!

To close, I would just like to note that when all is said and done, the most remarkable thing of all.  In my humble opinion.  Is that with a strong body comes a strong mind.  And with a strong mind, anything.  Yes.  Absolutely anything.  Is possible.
