I train... what do u do?

-I train in a box. It has walls…sometimes. Sometimes we go outside. Sometimes we meet elsewhere. It’s not the location I value, it’s the people.

-I train in an open space, because bars and my training partners fly everywhere. There is not equipment in the way, only my friends near me as we all struggle together, and are rewarded all the same.

-I train in a warehouse with no air conditioning and big garage doors. If you didn’t know where it was, you’ll never find it. There is no giant sign outside. The signs of training are all inside, working, or helping each other.

-I train with people I truly enjoy, and would do anything for, not where I need to put ear phones in to block out all the annoying banter. When we go, we hear yells, trainers instructing, or loud music making us go even harder…not elevator music, real music.

-I train in a place where if I am negative, I will be addressed by at least one person about my stupid attitude, and if I am unlucky enough on that day, I may be asked to leave, and come back when I’m better, because I am effecting the core by my stupid baggage that is meant to be burned at the door.

-I train where I’m valued and truly appreciate for showing up and putting forth true, real, demanding effort.

-I train where I am judged on my movements and attitude everyday. Not because my friends are jerks, but because they truly want to make me better at life, and want success for me, not injury. Poor performance means someone will care enough to help me make it better, and find out why it happened.

-I train where everyone applauds when I do well, and I applaud for them.

-I train where justification is lucifer, and honesty is gospel. For if I lie, I only fail myself.

-I train to be better at life. The unknown and unknowable. To one day be able to help someone less fortunate than I. To be able to be moving on my own when I’m old and gray, not being moved.

-I train because I want the mirror to be an outward reflection of how I feel inside, which is pretty good, and I want it to stay that way.

-I train because laziness sickens me, and preventable disease is exactly that…preventable through effort, not medication.

-I train to be different from those before me. To go out swinging, not resting. To live valiantly, not cowardly.

-I train where the floor could double as a pool at times because people actually work hard. I don’t care, that’s how it should be.

-I train with football players, grandmas, kids, housewives, doctors.

-I train with people of every walk of life, and status doesn’t matter, work does!

-I train where education daily is paramount, and if I’m not a constant student, I will fail quickly.

-I train where we are all equal, because we truly are. The only thing that separates people is the attitude to believe this is true or not. The ones who believe they are better than others, are so much better that they aren’t allowed to train with me.

-I train with people who make my day better.

-I train in a place where I want to be, not a place I feel I have to be.

-I train under expectations. Expectations to be better than yesterday.

-I train in a community dedicated to the whole. The success of the many. this is the reason we all change and progress so fast. Where I train it’s not about “I”….its about “us”

I train….what do you do?"
