Thoughts You Have at Yates

Banner - Yates ThoughtsThe gym is where champions are made. So while I spend half my day stuffing my face and an eighth burning a few calories at Yates, I have learned a couple of things. Shall we begin? Here are thoughts we all have at Yates:

  1. The walk from the stairs down to our machine/gym spot is probably the most intimidating part of the whole experience…or the best depending on the kind of person you are. If you’re a person who appreciates strutting what you got, then honestly, good for you. But if you’re not, then you probably have your heart rate up quicker than you would in the middle of an actual workout.

2. Five minutes into your workout. Here we go. You’re good. It’s all good. You think you’re blending in. You can totally do this once a week. Definitely.

3. Twenty minutes into your workout and you actually think you’re dying. These girls/boys aren’t looking at you because you look good. They’re worried that you might faint. Someone grab a towel because you’re sweating a fountain.

4. You see that cute girl/guy walk in–and you suddenly start rippin’ the reps.

5. And now you’re staring. Praying they don’t see you.

5. You think you should branch out this gym sesh. Try something new. Yeah! You adjust the new machine, hoping you don’t look something like this:

or this:

6. Most important to address: how you think you look

How you actually look:

7. But at the end of the day, you should be proud that you got yourself there. :’)

 

And there you have it, folks. Keep liftin’.

Only an inch above the legal midget cut-off, she likes to run half marathons but needs twice as much time as the average 5'4" woman due to limited stride-length. She appreciates a good medium-rare burger and early morning paddle boarding. Her greatest pride is split between her developing music taste and her ability to make mediocre pasta.
