I'm sure she believes that, but I'm also sure she's involved in personal training and maybe makes some money that way, so her opinion is clouded by her conflict of interests.
As for the cardio, that's not entirely true. Even if you just walk, there is resistance, it's just that it's much less than if you lift weights. But there are still merits, and that's the reason you keep doing it. Cardio helps to burn energy, and energy in the form of fat is what you want to burn. So cardio helps with weight loss, and also fitness and health. It's vital if you wish to reduce cholesterol, improve heart function, BP and so on. So ignore what she says, it's not a waste of time at all.
Tried and trusted principles of exercise work, these great ideas and new fads very rarely have any merit other than making money for people somewhere along the line.
