What if you never had to skip the gym when you weren’t feeling it?
What if you could sustain a minor injury playing baseball, or falling at work, but continue feeding your body, brain, and spirit with feel-good hormones that bolster your confidence and bring you a good day and restful sleep?
I just had a girl in class that did that.
She had a bum ankle and had been avoiding the gym for it. When she came in, she let me know she would need some help modifying movements. “No problem, that’s what I do every day!”
Instead of rowing, we did one-foot out-the-strap rowing.
Instead of box jumps, we did kettlebell swings.
Instead of burpees, we did D-Ball Slams.
The workout was the same. She left with sweat, some laughs, and having kept a promise to herself to do something three days each week that makes her feel good.
Most of us aren’t afraid that we can’t do something after an injury. We’re really just afraid of being a nuisance, of needing special attention.
I’ll speak for every good coach out there. We WANT that. If you only knew how much time we’ve dedicated to learning how to help our clients, only to have so many of them brush off that expertise. We would LOVE for you to come to us with something we are good at helping with.
It’s like asking a dog if he wants to fetch. Like, duh. Gimme dat ball.
See you in the box.
P.S. I spelled nuisance right on the first try while writing this. Big win for me. Today is going to be a good day.
