Great advice, Coach!
I did quit the job about a month ago. Best choice I ever made.
For the summer I’m working a job for the city “restoring” vagrant camps in the parks. Lots more pay and, believe it or not, I feel 100x better about myself at the end of a day evicting the homeless and cleaning up their hypo needles and garbage than I did trying to sell people on training.
For now I just ride my bike every day and take karate 3 times per week.
My problem is that I used to live to lift until I started this job. It was a significant portion of my identity from age 14 to now, 22. Life was eat, sleep, lift; filling in any gaps leftover with school and homework as needed.
I don’t know what it is. I now hate being in “the gym”. It doesn’t matter which gym whether it’s the gym where I worked, the public gym by my apartment, the weight bench IN my apartment, or the gym at the University.
Does anyone have any ideas or strategies for getting back into it? Getting back my passion for it? I warm up and start lifting the weights and I just don’t seem to care.
Maybe I just need a new reason?

Find yourself a good training crew; they’ll get you back on track.
