Women and working out with weights

With the advent of the New Year, you're probably busy trying to live up to your resolutions, which might include revamping your workout routine.

The American Council on Exercise says even busy women can and should consider adding some strength training their workouts.

For many women, it's just habit.

Get to the gym and hop on the treadmill or elliptical machine.

And while free weights are a good option for some, machines may be the better option for women just starting out- the fixed path allows you to learn the movement correctly.

While learning and working, using a trainer might be the best bet.
