Sure you can take a brisk walk on the treadmill and call it a workout. To get maximum results, however, you need INTENSITY! I'm talking about sweat-dripping, teeth-clenching, pain-inducing intensity that discomfortingly breaks down your muscles and takes you to a new kind of sore.

Soreness may not be your ideal kind of feeling, but it does provide a sense of personal achievement. Afterwards, feed yourself a good amount of protein and let those muscles rest up, so that next time you can reach another level of INTENSITY.

I know that we are girlie girls and prefer a pedi to hardcore muscle training. But we are also strong females who don't have time to waste. When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in gym, do as the gym rats do:
If you prefer the cardio machines, push yourself to go faster and at higher resistance.
If you like to lift, do heavier sets (safely) or increase repetitions.
If you box, throw each punch as if you are fighting for your life!

Whatever you do, put more or all into it. In time, you will clearly identify the results. But tomorrow, you will be sore and very, very proud!
