This is a quote I hold very dear to me and thought I would share with all of you reading as well. Not only does it apply inside the gym but in our everyday lives too.
With the completion of the new Double Edge gym near, we are all hoping to see some new faces join our Double Edge Family. With that being said, do you remember your first day at the gym? Possibly a little intimidating. Maybe you didn’t know anyone and maybe you were scared of what you were walking into. Remember your first time at the gym and when you see a new face don’t be scared to introduce yourself! Take pride in making someone else feel comfortable and welcome.
The open season is coming to an end and this is a bittersweet feeling for some. As a coach I love seeing everyone come together and push each other. There is no better feeling than watching people encourage one another to get those final reps that they just didn’t think possible. My point here being that even though the open is coming to a close, it doesn’t mean that the awesome environment it brings should come to an end as well. Every day we should be encouraging the person next to us. Congratulate someone on a PR. Tell someone they are looking strong. Be happy for another’s success. It’s like the old saying, “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” Acknowledging someone else’s accomplishments makes them feel good about themselves. We should not hold back from telling someone, “Hey your hard work is paying off. Keep it up!” It’s the little things sometimes that can give someone that extra little confidence boost that they may just have needed to get through the day.
We should abide by this quote in our everyday lives too.
If your friend got a promotion, congratulate them;
If someone got a haircut, tell them it looks nice;
If you think someone looks beautiful, tell them;
Hold the door open for someone.
Smile at somebody.
We never know what someone is going through, and it’s the little things that can make a difference.
So never be afraid to say something that is on your mind, and always strive to make people feel acknowledged and loved.
