94 pounds is awesome! The younger ladies have the advantage of a younger (read faster) metabolism...ours slows down by about 1% per year after 30 or 35.

Strength training builds muscle, however to build muscle you need an exercise which creates fatigue after 8-12 reps. (Meaning you really couldn't do it more.) Small weights don't do that. You should not strength train more than every other day (every third day over fifty.)

There is nothing magic about equipment...lots of things offer weight or resistance. I do think that if you can manage it a session or two with a trainer is a good idea, especially if you are scared of weight training.
