Weight Lifting Women at Fit 4 Everyone

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) The sight of women lifting weights is not one you picture when asked to think of a typical gym scene. A group of seniors is debunking that trend at Fit 4 Everyone in Conway.

Weight Lifting“I feel as we get older we need more strength,” Margaret Kiefert a member of the group said.

“They take it one step at a time and work on each person individually,” Nancy Kosko added.

The ladies are watching their fitness and strength improve in ways they never thought possible.

“I can now lift, very easily, a 20 pound cat litter box. I think that’s an accomplishment,” Kiefert said.

Weight Lifting3“I feel wonderful it makes me feel wonderful,” Kosko said. “I don’t want to miss one class. If I have to go away I try to get back in time to be at the next class because I don’t want to miss it. I love it.”

The trainers and staff at Fit 4 Everyone are all either professors in Exercise Science at Coastal Carolina University or they are student interns studying the way the body works. They say their programs are individually designed and resistance based.  What makes them different is their specific scientific background of the body.

“We train them exactly how we do,” Head Trainer Andrea Suppe said. “It’s not just a fad for that month or a 30 day challenge. This is a lifestyle change.”

Weight Lifting4“I went from lifting five pound dumb bells to 70 pound bar bell,” Kosko said.
