Well this kind of says it all. Isn’t this the basic philosophy of all
gym rats successful fitness enthusiasts? As I was going into the gym the other day I ran into a friend of mine coming out. He told me he had been having a difficult time getting to the gym that morning. He just didn’t feel like showing up but he’d dragged himself in anyway. I asked him if he was sorry that he’d made that decision (knowing what the answer would be). He answered that he felt great. He was very glad he’d made it in and was energized and feeling strong now that his workout was over.
That’s the way it always is for me. There are plenty of times when I just have to grit my teeth and drag myself in the door. Some days the getting there is the hardest part of my workout but I can tell you one thing. I’ve never, ever regretted my decision to go to the gym.
Like the old saying goes, showing up is half the battle, and no where is that more true than in the pursuit of your goals in the gym. No show, no benefit. It’s as simple as that.
