1. “Strength does not come from the physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” – Ghandi
This feeling is especially common if you haven’t worked out in forever (or maybe it’s even your first time) and you’re feeling like everyone around you is in much better shape. They’re running through HIIT workouts with ease and you’re in the back struggling to get in a breath.
You feel like a fraud. And you can’t help but think: Who are you to try to train like any of these athletes?
Okay, let’s hit the brakes on this train of thought. First of all, every one of those people started somewhere. They didn’t leave the womb shredded with the endurance of a horse, and they surely don’t come to the gym just to stand around and show off how buff they are.
So what is the difference between you and them?
They stopped thinking about others and got to work on improving themselves, regardless of their level of fitness. Their will to be better overrode their fear of being physically inadequate.
So struggle to catch your breath with pride. Soon enough, you’ll be better than the next beginner that steps through the doors.
