Recently I have started training with a partner. I normally am the kind of person to put my earbuds in, blinders on and stare pass people avoiding all eye contact and any chance of communicating. I like to get in the gym, do the deed and get out. I get very irritated when people get in the way of what I call, “my” time.
The last couple of weeks I have kept my music off so I can be there for my training partner. I have seen their strengths and weaknesses and they have seen mine without words spoken. Bonus is that I am doing exercises that I normally wouldn’t do. Being pushed and challenged with someone else by my side feels pretty darn good.
You have to have a partner in crime. Someone that sees you in pain and still loves you. Someone who watches your weaknesses and still wants you. Someone that knows your strengths even if you don’t. Someone that needs you as much as you need them. It’s your partner. Your teammate. Your spotter. It just takes one person.
Do you have a partner?
