Sometimes, all it takes is one person. Sometimes, you can do it all alone. But sometimes you just need one other person to believe, one other person to give a damn, one other person to say “Keep going” or “I know how you feel.”
One person to tell you “Get back on the bar” or “One more box jump and then you can rest” or simply “3-2-1-Go.”
How simple is that and yet how incredibly difficult? Most of us are independent by nature. We want to believe we can do it all alone, without the help of anyone else. We want to do it all by ourselves. For us, the weakness is not in our efforts, but in our wanting, in our need for anyone or anything else in this life.
Yet just one person can make all the difference in our workout, in our day, in our week, in our lives.
One person to cheer. One person to coach. One person to basically give a damn about us.
Get in the gym today. Listen to that one person. And be that one person for someone else.
