Today, I had my trainer, and he told me that he gets a lot of excuses and he uses me as motivation for why people should show up to the gym. I have to say, I find this hysterical because I absolutely HATE going to the gym. You know how people get a runner's high and feel great after working out? I don't get that. I am just annoyed.
But he tells them, "I have a client with MS and she doesn't complain. She's here every week and works her butt off."
Okay, here's the truth. I go to the trainer because I know if I just joined a gym, I would never go. I'd be like, yeah, tomorrow. But having a trainer, I have to be there or I have to pay for it. Someone is meeting me. It's like an appointment and I knew if left up to me, I'd never go. So I pay someone to make sure I'm there. But I like that he gives me credit where it isn't due. It motivates me. How ironic is that?
