I don’t want anyone to get alarmed but…
Just this week I saw one of the “Trainers” at my World Gym, IN the Gym.
Now of course this isn’t unusual but in this case there was no soccer Mom in tow and no predetermined, “same as every other person I’ve ever trained” routine being “taught”. This guy was ALONE! Yes I know what you are thinking “Hey Cake, maybe he was just lost?” and that was exactly what I was thinking but NO!, I turn around to ask him if he needs directions to the phones so he can hustle yet more soccer Moms into a membership (that’s all the “Trainers” here do, Fat, Lazy, Salesmen really…) and HE IS WORKING OUT! Yes! an honest, Balls to the wall, heavy duty workout, even with SWEAT!
Now, this guy is “New” so I’m sure in the near future he will forget the un-assisted path to the Gym and stay with the rest of the herd at the phones but much like spotting an Albino Tiger in the wild, this was such a beautiful sight that I doubt I will ever forget it.
Alas, as with most rare things sometimes the memories are all that you really have to hold on to. Don’t get your hopes up of seeing this in person though but if you would like I could draw you a rough sketch and using your imagination, you could apply it to your own Gym (unless you’re lucky enough to workout in a “Real” Gym…)
