The Motivator Next to You
A few weeks ago during a workout, I heard an athlete say to the athlete next to them, “I saw you were going for it on the burpees so I went for it to0. I thought to myself, if he’s going for it, so should I.”
This statement hammers home the fact that our group training environment is silently motivating and contagious. For a workout method that is highly individual and which champions individual progress, class hours can exhibit a tremendous team effort to complete the task at hand. We see another athlete pushing a little harder one day and it rubs off onto our own training. We see an athlete struggling through a workout and a small nod of acknowledgement can get them back on track.
Have you been midway through a suckfest of a workout and had another athlete’s actions inspire you to refocus and work harder? Post to comments.
