Most tips relating to exercise apply to both sexes but when it comes to getting more out of your workouts, there are certain issues that relate to women.

Time your exercise with your menstrual cycle. 

A study by the University of Adelaide found that women who exercise at this time of the month when levels of estrogen and progesterone are at their highest, burn more fat for energy, which leads to weight loss and less exercise-related fatigue.

Ignore the mirror at the gyms. 

One study found that women who exercised in front of a mirror felt less calm and more tired after 30 minutes of exercise than those who exercised without mirrors.

You can be both healthy and heavy. 

Research shows that the amount of activity you get, not your weight, is the chief predictor of heart disease.

Check your iron levels.

Women with low iron levels find it harder to maintain an exercise regime than those with normal iron levels

Find the right teacher.

If you want a motivating exercise class, find a teacher with whom you feel relaxed.  Someone who, like most of us, looks as though they need to exercise to look their best.
