I don’t train to look good…
I don’t train to attract attention…
I don’t train because it is trendy…
I train because it is in the gym, where I feel complete. It is the only place where an entire life can be compressed into a few hours, where the emotions of a lifetime can be felt on an acre or two of ground- hope, satisfaction, disappointment, fear, triumph, doubt…
I train because during a workout I feel like nowhere else!
By going to the gym, every day I get the chance to wake up filled with desire and enthusiasm to face the day!
Workouts give me the opportunity, on a daily basis, to challenge myself, my abilities, will and mind!
Workouts are what helps me to feel satisfied with what I do, no matter the circumstances, the hardships and the obstacles I face
Workouts give me a chance to meet people like me! People who share my values, my point of view and my understanding about life!
People who are my daily dose of motivation and inspiration!
Working out helps me keep my body fit and my mind straight!
Working out is my pill- against envy, duplicity, betrayal, faint- hearted and mediocrity!
Working out is what helps me discover the meaning of life, every single day!
Each workout is like a small rehearsal for the rest of my life.
Every time I feel challenged to finish a set of heavy squats, it is up to me if I break down or focus. If I rise up, or give in and fall down!
And then, when I walk out of the gym, and life challenges me, I know that I CAN! Because I’ve already done it…during the rehearsal(the workout).
Every time when doubts, worries and disappointments take over my life, I remember how the bar weighs on my shoulders… and I know that I have the strength to rise up and keep moving forward! I know that nothing can break me, unless I let it!
Working out teaches me, to look for the reason about failures in my own actions, my approach.. and never blaming others!
Working out teaches me that when a person has a goal, he gives his best to reach it. No excuses! You either want it and work for it, or you make excuses and put up with failure!
Looking good, attracting more attention, being confident… this is the least that I get, in favor of my persistence and hard work!
But the true reason to train is hidden much deeper… it makes a lot more sense and it is a lot more potent!
I train, because there aren’t a lot of things in life, that could make you feel like this on a daily basis!
I train, because there isn’t a normal person, who would miss the opportunity to feel alive, inspired, motivated and filled with desire to live… EVERY SINGLE DAY!
I train, because this allows me to take control over my body and my mind.
I train, because workouts are my rehearsal… something like a theater, where you get the opportunity to play different settings… to feel different emotions… to improve different qualities… so when you go out of the gym and you get hit by the reality, life has to offer, you will have the confidence that YOU CAN!
How do I stay motivated to train? I do not need a special kind of motivation to feel alive, inspired and motivated?
What about you? Why do you train?
