Give yourself a lift
“I think people see ‘weightlifting class’ and, if they’ve never been, are kind of intimidated,” Harlow said, “but everybody can do it. Everyone works at their own pace. You can start with really light” one-pound weights or “heavier weights if you already work out. Whatever you’re ready for. Lifting weights builds muscle, which helps you burn calories more often and get your metabolism higher. Free weights are really good for your core and help with your balance.”
