So, I was working with a nutritionist/Endocrinologist a while back with my weight loss journey, and one doctor specialized in Women's weight loss, especially those with hormonal disorders. In my case some of my health issues slow down my metabolism to the extent that just dieting didn't really help that much. She highly suggested I do weight training and cardio- but both with the goal of gaining muscle mass over time- as that would help my metabolism in the long run.

She really did suggest a good mix of cardio/weight training--- as things like jogging/swimming essentially activate the biggest muscles in your body, but also having some weight training days for more focused muscle buildup. Since I was a beginner she highly suggested I join a gym to use the machines/pools, and possibly see if they offered any trainers/coaches to help start me on the right path.

Well, weight training IS exercise. The answer really has to do with what you're capable of doing and how your body responds to stimulus. I will say that I probably "looked my best" when I was both training for a half marathon and doing heavy weightlifting. Of course, I was also in my 20s

It also depends on how you want to shape your body. It's common for men to want "V-shaped" upper bodies, while some women would hate that look (although some women would also be very happy with it!). Weightlifting can help "exaggerate" your features, if you wanted to bring attention to particular ones, while more aerobic-based exercises can "carve" into fat.
