Dear Gym Sales Person
When someone comes into your gym, looking to join and is not your typical gym enthusiast, take a moment.
When they struggle to fill out your form regarding their attitude towards exercise, take a moment.
When they can't find the words to explain why they can't face the idea of having to start with classes and personal training and why they need to take it slow, take a moment.
If you take a moment to try and put yourself in their shoes and xxxl gym gear, you may realise that it has taken over three years of self-reproach, an inability to see themselves in your hallowed halls of fitness. You may realise that your supercilious attitude regarding mindset and motivation is actually breaking that person down. You may realise that you are pushing them back into the I-can't-do-it mindset. You may never know how much courage it took to walk in through the door let alone speak to you.
