I remember when I first started lifting weights way back when I lived in Minot, ND. I felt so insecure and awkward in the weight room. I literally had no idea what I was doing–but I didn’t want to ASK (God forbid) or LOOK like I didn’t know what I was doing, so I just tried to figure it out on my own. One day a “guy” approached me and told me I was going to hurt myself if I continued to lift that way. Of course I was horrified, but also realized that I needed help. So, I humbled myself enough to ask if he would teach me. Turns out he was a trainer GAH! Best thing I ever did was to ADMIT I needed help and turns out he was a GREAT coach and trainer. The moral of the story: sometimes you just gotta “let go of the control, ego, embarrassment or WHATEVER and do what it takes to take care of yourself. JUST ASK!!
