I’m a huge fan of inclusive #gyms with this message. Both @thegymgroup (in the UK) and @blinkfitness (in NY) are really big on making gyms a place to come and work hard regardless of what shape you’re in or what goals you have.
I’ve been lucky enough to introduce quite a few folk to free weights and one of the biggest fears is that other people will look down on you for lifting lighter weights. I totally understand that, but the reality is the people that know what they’re doing only care about how hard you’re working.
Sometimes you’ll be impressed with how heavy someone lifts, or how great their form is. But, I’ve never seen someone that’s trying hard while using lighter weights and thought negatively about them. The thing that impresses me the most is how hard you’re trying.
Thanks to @thegymgroup and @blinkfitness for making safe spaces for everyone to try their hardest.
