There’s nothing quite like being a regular at the gym.
You get to know new people. You get to constantly perform at a higher level. You have great positive human interaction that more and more people don’t get anymore.
The people around you are supportive, and they are genuinely interested in your day.
Being a regular means you are part of our team. Many people count on you being at the gym because they may want your opinion on something important.
You may have had a horrible day but the laughs at the gym can pick you up and look at tomorrow as a fresh start.
Being a regular means you know the hardship of starting for the first time, and also you know the folly of quitting, and the value of carrying on through thick and thin.
You pat yourself on the back at times for the moments you thought about quitting but you stuck at it, how you developed resilience, and how you love the fact that you’re still in shape at 40 to 70 years old, and you are still getting better.
You love the fact that everyone knows your name, respects your ability and remarks occasionally how far you have actually come.
Being a regular counts, and makes you a very strong part of who we are. Congratulations.and thanks for coming.
