Don't tell me you aren't competitive
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand.
Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
— Nelson Mandela
Sports have a huge influence on our culture. We pay top athletes millions of dollars, in order to watch them play a game. A game however, which brings people from all walks of life together to share the experiences of triumph and failure.
The power of sports and “gamification” of tasks in the gym can be a powerful tool for building better athletes, people with better quality movement and stronger communities.
Now, we're not saying you have to constantly compete with others in the gym, nor do you have to obsess over where you rank in the gym on a day by day basis.
But you should be aware of it at it's basest level. After all, competitiveness is one of the traits most responsible for our emergence as the dominant species.
Ultimately we really do believe that your biggest competition is with yourself.
However........ if you can be inspired by, and enjoy some friendly rivalry with, the others in your class, this exercise gig sure sure starts to seem like fun once in a while......
You might tell me (and try to convince yourself) that you're not competitive, but I'm sorry, it's in your DNA.
