It is best for everyone to do weights and cardio work outs. Aerobics are cardio, that will help the heart and to burn fat. Weights will help with muscle grownth and strength.

you cant turn fat into muscle but you can loose fat and gain muscle. you will burn more callories outside of the gym with more muscle mass and you should use both weights and weight training together to get great bennifits.

weights are great for the bones, muscles and look of your body, Cardio is great for your heart, lung efficiency and metabolism.

you could end your weight workout with 30 minutes on some aerobic activity, or do weights one day and cardio the next.

YOU CAN NOT TURN BODY FAT INTO MUSCLE! THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF TISSUE!!! the trick is... build muscle and do cardio.... when u build muscle, the muscle needs more calories, therefor, when your doing cardio, your burning more calories. so when ur building muscle, ur metabolism is much higher. but do not ONLY do muscle work, if u do, u will just have muscle under the fat.... combine it with cardio! and of course eat healthy...:)
