Salvere Blog: Womens Gym

March 20, 2018

Do you go to a gym or fitness center that reserves space for women to workout without men? A few weeks ago, I visited one of the bigger gyms in the area and I saw this “weight rack” upon entering the womens gym to lift weights.

Look closely. You will notice the availability of weights less then 5lbs as well quite a bit of mismatched equipment. Now this fitness center boasts a big share of the Baltimore area gym memberships.
Several things about this — Women, how many of you lift small children? Do they weigh more then 5lbs? Okay, if you don’t, do you use a purse, carry groceries or other bags into your home?
When it comes to what message this sends — Women, you possess a strength far greater then you often give yourself credit. You are worth investing in and it matters. Unless you need to recover from an injury in which case you need those weights, advocate for more then this for your dedicated space.

You’re worth it and you matter, just as much as everyone else!

How Thirsty Are You?

February 13, 2015

By Salvere Health and Fitness

Have you ever heard the saying, “You can lead a camel to the water but you can’t force it to drink?” I have a friend who has been struggling trying to workout and make better lifestyle choices. In this New Year, SHE DECIDED to make changes in her life to become healthier. I was excited for her and wanted to support her in this journey. She lives out of town and I knew she didn’t have a strong support system, so I offered to Skype with her on the days she wanted to workout. She liked the idea and we’ve been Skyping for a month now! She’s even thrown in extra days and activities on her own on the days we don’t Skype!

I asked that question earlier in this blog because my friend has always had the “tools” to workout and to have a healthier lifestyle, but SHE had to make the decision that it was time to start HER journey. We have gyms, probably some free weights at home, videos, You Tube video access, etc., to get tips and workouts. But, it’s not until YOU are thirsty enough to want to make the decision to workout and make lifestyle changes, is when you can quench your thrist! So how thirsty are you?…….Happy Drinking! (water that is)
