"Well, I'm sure the weight won't be a problem for you, but let me talk you through the method on the free-weights," said Sara.  Her friends, Kelly could see, were not super-strong, but were managing weights that once Kelly might have deemed halfway decent, at least.

There turned out to be some complexity to getting best use out of free weights, but it wasn't actually hard for her.  She was easily strong enough to lift the heaviest ones available, even using poor technique, if necessary.

"It's what I do, at full size like this," said Sara, demonstrating.

...Over in one corner, Kelly could see their teacher.  He appeared to be designing schematics on some kind of computer.

After a while, he headed in her direction.

"...Important question to be answered," he said.  "Tough must be skin and muscle of yours; to be telling me how tough, for grip strength?"

It wasn't long before the teacher returned, and took some tests-- they didn't hurt at all, in fact-- on her hands and arms.

"Tough and strong!" he pronounced.  "To be able to withstand much."
