Strength training is not on the top of my “favorites” list. Yet, despite the fact that I dislike it, I do it because I know it’s good for me and it makes me look better. On a good week, I’ll make it to the gym twice a week and spend about a half hour trying to work all the major muscle groups in my upper body. Some weeks, I just don’t make it at all; I can only find the time for my (almost) daily run.
I imagine I’m fortunate that my gym is located a third of a mile from my office, so it’s easy for me to head over there during my lunch hour. It’s not just the close proximity; I happen to think the gym is a different and better place to be during non-prime-time hours. It’s not crowded, but there are still a good number of people. Lately, though, I’ve been noticing what kind of people. Despite the growing reports of the increase in weight training among women and other populations, I still mostly see men. Year-round, there are a handful of older adults and women, and around summer time, it’s hard not to notice the teens who only feel comfortable in groups. But where are the equal numbers of populations in the weight room that all these studies keep talking about? My guess is they’re not there because No. 1, they don’t particularly like it (like me), and No. 2, they haven’t stuck with it long enough to see results. Just knowing that it’s good for them isn’t good enough. But giving them a purpose to strength train that appeals to them, however, probably would be.
