I guess it started with wrestling in high school. There is no team to help you out! It's just you, one on one. With all the training we had to do, I just kept it going.
Why I Love it
When I workout, it's my time! I challenge myself everyday. You sit there staring at the weights, and your mind is like, "I can't lift that". But it doesnt' stop you from reaching for the weights and giving it everything you got. The rewards from your hard work shows, and you're the only one that can take credit for it! Weight training always gives me a sense of accomplishment, which spills over into real life. It helps build confidence as well as self esteem. You start to really understand yourself, body and what motivates you.
