There’s something to be said about the relationships you develop through wins, losses, suffering, success – mainly, they’re pretty solid. This applies to a number of experiences, but today, we’re talking about fitness. No matter kind of physical activity I’ve undertaken, I generally have found good people and, importantly, life-long friends. Plainly put: fitness and the friends I’ve made along the way make me feel good.
The video that follows is just a silly aggregation of random clips give you a peak inside my head when I train, make friends, struggle, sweat…whatever. Let’s just call it my internal theme music at the present time.
I have such a hard time understanding why people can be so obstinant to these types of lifestyle changes as it all seems like nothing but good in my book. While I’m lucky to be surrounded by good people and coaches along the way, I don’t believe my experience is a singular one. I’ve found that group fitness generally attracts supportive people. Presently, I recognize that consistency across Crossfit affiliates as I travel for work. I also notice these themes in OrangeTheory, Soul Cycle, Rev, FlyWheel and LesMills as examples. The only place it never really happened for me was in the silent world of oversized headphones at a big box gym.
So yea, this is a little sappy and melodramatic. You can deal with it. Go make your own little highlight reel, won’t ya?!
Stay healthy my friends –
