Yesterday I saw something amazing. At the gym amongst the majority of people meandering through a half-hearted workout I saw a handful of people that really owned their workout routine. They were consistent, energetic, focused and obviously giving it their all. That alone is great, but one person stood out.
I didn’t say hi, and I didn’t ask her name – its an unwritten rule not to disturb someone in between sets or if they were wearing headphones or for a multitude of other reasons – but I did admire from a distance.
And the admiration wasn’t because she was hot (yet she was) and not because her routine had more energy than 98% of the folks the the gym (although it did).
She totally owned her routine despite being over 8 months pregnant.
Watching her energized and motivated me to get a better workout too – and for that I thank her.
And there it is. If an 8 month pregnant woman can push out an intense workout, there is absolutely no excuse for the rest of us.
