“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” – Gibran Khalil Gibran
Today was my shoulders training day at the gym… That went great and all, but really the important thing was the people at the gym.
On my way to the bench, my towel slipped and was about to fall off my shoulder. While trying to pull a balancing act on my crutches and keep the towel from falling one of my crutches hit the floor. Before I can do anything 2 people ran up to me and helped me out.
After getting to the bench, I went to grab a couple of dumbbells and a guy, probably around my age, runs up to me and helps me out and takes the dumbbells and sets up by the bench.
Then again at the end of my workout, I had 3 sets of dumbbells at my bench and I started rolling them towards the rack (I re-rack my weights no matter what!) This older gentleman run up to me and says “Working out with a broken foot is dedication, but trying to re-rack your weights afterwards is a whole other level. Let me do that for you, please!”
Made my day!
