Why: Join us for this Live Healthy Sheldon wellness education session! Despite study after study supporting the benefits of strength training, many women still opt for cardio over weight training. Maybe we’re worried about “bulking up”…? So what's the secret to looking toned (think: Michelle Obama’s arms) but not…tough? Strength training. Let one of our personal trainers introduce you to the strength room, exercises to help you tone and strengthen, and ease your weightlifting fears.
