Encourage All

Maybe at some point you have seen someone at the gym that is a bigger person. I am talking someone that is pretty obese. The problem in today’s society is we show this facade that we are all loving and politically correct and turn are back on people when they need us the most. I have seen it many times when someone is putting in good solid work and they are being torn down by others just because of their size. What you need to do is be a better person and let them know they are doing a good job.

Many people who struggle with weight problems have been fighting a struggle for a big part of their lives. I remember being younger before I was active and always being a the “fat kid”. This label discourages you and even when you are making real progress it doesn’t take much to knock you down because your conditioned you are nothing. So to that big guy walking slowly around the gym or that big girl using the elliptical let them know they are doing a good job. Anybody that is in the gym is doing more than someone sitting at home on their couch. Tell people they look great and you look forward to seeing them tomorrow.

Well that is my little service post for the day. So encourage everybody even if they aren’t big and grow healthier together.

Cleaning up

When you attend a gym most of the time they have certain rules that they would like everyone to follow. Some of these rules may be to wipe down equipment and put weights away. I would like to share why you should always put the weights back where they go.

We have all been there at the gym where we are tired after a killer work out and take the lazy route to picking up by putting weights where they may not go. This creates an unorganized system that is less efficient. Others at the gym need to fight to find that nice V bar to use for pull downs or those dumbbells are creating a tripping hazard that will hurt somebody. more times than not you should try to go the extra mile to clean up rather than leave things a mess for others to pick up. What  you need to think about is that you are at the gym for exercise and what a better way to finnish then putting the things you used away. This extra exersize will only take a few minutes and give you the push you need.

Well that is my service announcement for the day, everybody be safe and clean up after yourselves! If you liked this post hit that old like button and share with your friends.
