Admit your mistakes!

So let me tell you a story…,

I took a class at my gym a couple weeks ago and enjoyed it because it pushed me to do better. This morning I decided that I would go again today.

I got to the gym after work and was greeted by a different trainer asking if I was here for the 5:45pm class. I nodded. He introduced himself and we talked a little. As we were talking I kept wondering where the other trainer was but I didn’t think too hard. No worries. Maybe he is having this guy train today.

A couple other students arrive. Only 3 of us?!? But last time there were like 10… where is everyone???

We start walking and the trainer explains some of what he has planned today.

🤔

Hmmm… this doesn’t sound right.

Then the other student, let’s call her Mrs Beast, tells me she is happy I joined this class. It’s tough but I could just modify some.

Now I am more confused.

“How hard is this? Enough to make me cry after…. hehehe” (I tend to use humor as a defense)

“You will probably cry in the middle of it! Hahahah! Sometimes, I do!”

Ummm… what?!?

The trainer starts to explain the warm up…

😱 I realize I’m in the wrong class!!! I joined the super duper muscular beast mode class! (Not the actual name of the class)

Crap! 🤭

How do I leave??!!! I can’t! 😫

They have all seen me. It’s easy to escape when there’s a big crowd. It’s not that easy when there’s only 3 students.

He has us start warming up…

Half way into the warm up I realize I made a huge mistake!! Mrs Beast must have noticed the look on my face. She looks over at me, smiles really big, and says “Our warm up isn’t over yet!”

😧

I’VE MADE A MISTAKE!!!! God help me escape!

I swear I heard God chuckle!

Long story short… I was too committed and embarrassed to quit and admit my mistake.

I struggled. Couldn’t do most of the circuits and strength exercises. I tried anyways. I don’t think the trainer ever had anyone at my obviously beginners level try his super beast mode class! Even modified, I couldn’t complete what he was instructing.

Now here I sit, unable to lift my arms, contemplating why I just can’t admit when I make a mistake.

As I was crawling towards my car I saw all the adults from the class I had intended on taking. It was at 6:45 and not 5:45.

Moral of the story: pay attention to details! Or you will end up in the super duper muscular beast mode class and end up unable to use your arms.
