Once you stop learning, you are done.
When you think you have arrived, you are fooling yourself.
Any time you think you can’t be knocked out of first place, you are doomed.
You get the point, I hope.
One thing I find to be very prevalent in the fitness world is a refusal to venture beyond what is commonly done in most gyms.
While I definitely believe in the importance of basic exercises with barbells, dumbbells, etc.
There is a small percentage of coaches/trainers who will seek out and experiment “hands on” with things most people aren’t even aware of. These are the ones that are not handcuffed by what others think is cool or effective. They go find out for themselves.
This young man came all the way from Lighthouse Point (near Fort Lauderdale) to learn today, while people 10 minutes from our gym did not.
Because he is hungry to learn!
People with very demanding schedules, like this Firefighter and others, made the time to come and learn.
If you have shackled yourself with the immunity to learn, remember you hold the key to unlock them.
Don’t limit your self to the status quo, the familiar, or the comfort zone!
