As worthy a reason to get strong as any
Sometime this morning one of my personal training clients had tagged me in a post on Facebook. We chat about all sorts of different things from current events to Batman to Star Wars to professional wrestling to my favorite band Judas Priest to his favorite band Guns N Roses and all the things involved with being a dad (we both have daughters born within months of each other).
And as often as things come up on Facebook, he doesn’t normally tag me in things but in this case, I could see exactly why he chose this one.
First watch the video.
To me, it highlights one of the more important things about training, which is it’s about more than having six-pack abs or whatever. It’s about being able to live life on your own terms, free of the restrictions of not being strong enough to do the things that you want to do.
In this case it’s a grandfather being able to pick up his grand daughter.
As for my guy, he actually had referred his wife to me for the same exact reason. She wanted to get stronger to be able to lift up her daughter overhead. The timing was perfect because I just uploaded her personal training success story video literally last night.
What’s not mentioned in the video is about the carry over to things beyond physical strength. Strength training builds confidence. The confidence to get unstuck and pursue what makes you happy.
In this case, Dot found herself unfulfilled by her work and left a job she had worked in the majority of her adult life, getting a new job with better pay and better working conditions.
Able to lift her kid overhead when she previously couldn’t and believing in her own capabilities. That’s a success story, and that is a good reason to train.
If you are interested in training with me to improve your life and get unstuck, I have a free trial at my personal training studio in Boonton. Just text me at 973 476 5328 and I can check my schedule to see when I’m available.
