Being in the gym with a friend is not such a bad thing as you might think. Being made to work hard is not a bad thing either. I think we can all agree that we're always going to be friends with people who make us work hard. You can take this blog post as a starting point.
You can discuss it with a friend, or with the gym leader you're having a gym battle with this time. I'm hoping you'll make some good suggestions about this concept so we can take it further. You're right, training is the most effective thing you can do, no matter how it comes. No matter if you train your body by spending time in the gym, or go out and exercise, it all does the same thing. It makes you better. It makes you feel better, and if you feel better, you're going to be a better trainer. It's that simple.
We don't have to agree on every training method, but we can understand that there are certain things that can work well, and we can find a common ground between us. If we stick to this common ground, we're going to have a lot more success. Thanks for reading. As a quick note, this advice only works if you're at least 10 years old, and you're at least 5 feet tall.
Remember, you're not a gym leader, so you can't be mad when someone shows up to train you and you end up rolling off the gym gym floor and into the bench. This is the same reason you can't help a gym trainer if they fall off the bench. If this post didn't make you feel good, I apologize.
It's meant to make you realize how good training can be, and that even if you feel like it's impossible to get through the gym, it doesn't have to be. Just give it a chance. So tell me, what are you trying to do to make training better? Thanks for reading.
