I don’t usually do this, but I am going to start this article off with a quote. Here goes, “Strength is like pudding–the proof is in it.” This gem comes to us from none other than the grand master of badassery herself, Kathy “Hot Kath” Traxler. For those of you that don’t know Hot Kath, it’s my mom. She doesn’t play.
Ok, I lied–my mom never said that; I made that quote up. She is, however, a bad ass so don’t sass her!
If we think about the quote, though, it makes a lot of sense. People don’t understand how awesome it is to be strong until they are strong. They don’t know that everything else gets easier, that better levels of agility, power, speed and endurance are all more attainable. Until someone is strong they just don’t get it.
It’s easy to be cynical, though. It’s easy to say, “Oh, they just don’t get it; they don’t understand.” The goal is to make everyone better, not to scoff at others. Scoffing is Planet Fitness’ job.
