The day you start training is the day you begin a never-ending journey. The physical and mental challenge of showing daily discipline will transfer into every day life. It's more than looking good, although that is a satisfying by-product and probably the reason most people start in the first place. Its about feeling good. It's the feeling of putting your body through physical stress, to better yourself. Some days I question why I even bother; is it just narcissistic that I'm here pumping my muscles in the mirror? There are more serious issues out there than my hip to waist ratio. But the training makes me happy. It's science, there's endorphins at play. It's all about happiness. And then I see my happy client who has just fit into a pair of jeans for the first time since 2007 and I realise that I have to help myself, in order to help others, no matter how trivial it may seem in relation to other stuff. Didn't plan to write so much, I never usually do. Could have just posted the picture with the word, "gains".. but then what would that gain other than a few likes?
I like this photo so I posted it. Never fully satisfied but then it's the 'getting' that's the enjoyable part, not the 'having'. 💪
