A couple of friends were working out with me.
I had trained one before, but she had never worked out with me. The other had been trained by me and also worked out with me.
I asked the friend who had never seen me workout to help with a calf exercise.
To me, completion of any task worth doing means that I have given it everything I have. Is there a point in doing things without enough personal value to create intense need for commitment?
When I finished my set, my calves were no longer able to assist me in walking away from the machine. I barely made it to a workout bench about two feet away and sat down to allow my calves to recover.
The friend who had never seen me work out commented, “Now he knows how we feel when he trains us.”
The other friend who had trained with me before responded, “Because of the way he works out, he knows how to help us work out.”
I massaged my calves and wondered about the incredible privilege of teaching and sharing. I also wondered if I am giving it everything I have.
