There is a comfort I find in the loneliest of gyms that Iโ€™ve yet to find anywhere else. ๐Ÿ’• This is why I have 4 (yes 4) gym memberships. While I love the high energy and the folks at @metrofitnessohio - I practically grew up there and the people there are like family - I also like the quiet solitude of a lonely gym in off hours and I seek it out, at different locations if necessary.
.
Itโ€™s probably because thatโ€™s how I started. I lifted at 10pm or later, in a gym with no other competitors. I was always alone, doing my own thing. I even did cardio on a back stairwell - hot as hell since it was by the boiler room, but no gym members back there to bother me as I ran stairs (the toughest and best workout I knew). I thrived in this environment. Just me and the weights and my thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ I never even wore headphones ๐ŸŽง My mind was a steady stream of self motivation and I didnโ€™t need added noise or distraction. Thatโ€™s whatโ€™s possible in a quiet, calm place.
.
I still crave this environment. Getting back to that place triggers that mindset and reminds me of how much drive I had when I started my competitive career. I still need that motivation today. Even though I wonโ€™t be in prep anytime soon, I still have goals. Fitness is a lifelong journey and Iโ€™m always searching for the next challenge. In quiet moments, in lonely gyms, is where I find the will to keep searching, striving and growing๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ #motivationmonday
