It's so important to leave your pride at the door. Who cares if you can't lift as heavy as everyone else. Who cares that you come in last every time. Who cares that you can't do a pullup. You. You are the only one that cares. No one else is looking at you saying, "man he's weak, or wow, she's weak." We are a community chasing the same goal. PROGRESS, HEALTH, FITNESS, BETTERMENT of YOURSELF. come for those reasons. Cheer those beside you on no matter what. No one has ever arrived. We can always get better. I care that when you walk into the box you give your best effort. Leave excuses at the door. Leave issues at the door.Ignore all distractions. do this for yourself. I truly believe that if you do these things and devote yourself to the hour you will see the difference in your life. Everything else will become small in comparison. TRAIN FOR LIFE. see you then.
