Get fit, learn practical self defence, increase independence and confidence.
If you're going do do the hard work of getting fit, why not learn something useful that will keep you safe and give you unique skills, while increasing your confidence. Krav Maga is a fast-paced and practical combat self-system that is popular with women all around the world from all walks of life.
You should be able to be independent and live your life without fear but the reality is that bad stuff can happen even in today's society. Women who work with the public are particular at risk, but often women subject to sexual intimidation or violence from people they know and thought they trusted. If you have been subject yourself to sexual intimidation or violence yourself, you will know the impact can be devastating to your confidence, self esteem. So the skills to look after yourself are essential to avoid being a victim.
In the past if you wanted to learn "self defence" you had to learn traditional martial arts or take up combat sports. The problem with martial arts are that they are not designed for women's self defence so are not effective in practice and/or moreover it can take a long time to reach a level where you can apply them in practice. Combat sports (or boxing fitness) also are not designed specifically for self defence, and the training environment can be intimidating.
Krav Maga overcomes these problems because it is quick to learn and works for women.
