Day 1 – Ask for help using gym equipment

Day 1 is a challenge from my dear friend Lauren:

“Interesting…” I thought. “How can I make this more challenging for myself?”.

So I decided to take it a step further and ask an intimidating-looking person at the gym. I don’t know exactly what my mind conjured at that point. Potentially someone with biceps the size of my thighs (actually that’s pretty achievable). 

So here we go:


-I vlogged to give context before completing this challenge…and that turned out to be the biggest challenge of all. Holding a camera and speaking to it in public felt very uncomfortable, hence the heart palpitations. I got through it though, everything’s fine, life’s good.  


People are awesome. 

Rory was especially helpful and really went out of his way to teach me. I kept saying “I appreciate it” because I truly did. He could’ve said “I don’t know” when I asked and left it like that, but he instead did his best despite never using that equipment, and showing me how to use 2 others. 

I really believe that people are intrinsically good. That, there’ll always be good eggs out there who want to see you hatch.
