How do you like to train? Some people like to train with a partner, some people like to train alone.
I find that when I train with a partner and without my music, that my workouts are not nearly as intense and focused. I’m just not as present with my workout.
I Train Alone
Personally, I train alone and prefer training alone. Training alone helps me to be completely and totally present with my workout, where mind and body are completely engaged in focusing on every rep of every exercise, squeezing the muscle being worked, and feeling it.
There are no outside distractions. My mind is cleared of everything. Nothing else exists. Nothing else matters. Just me, the iron and my music pumping me up through my ear buds, fueling my workout.
My workout time is my time for me, for mind and body to become one. Nothing fuels my mind and body than knowing that I not only worked out, but when I did my workout, that I was completely and totally present , focused on the here and now … just me, the iron and my music pumping me up through my ear buds and fueling my workout.
THIS is what fuels my energy to give my all to others, contribute to others, serve others, provide value to others, with energy and passion.
Now I want to hear from you on this blog.
How do you prefer to train and when you do train, ask yourself if you completely and totally present, in the here and now, focused, when you walk into the gym.
