A couple weeks ago a new client came into the gym and his focus was to get into great shape. Never mind there were numerous red flags with his movement, he didn’t care. He wanted to lose some weight and get thin. I insisted he do a handful of 1 on 1 personal training sessions so that we could spend some time working with him to make sure he understood the movements, as well learn numerous mobility drills and warmups he needed prior to taking classes. During the first session I hear Jeremy (our trainer) say “You need to be more mindful when you pick the kettlebell up.” He just looked at Jeremy and said (with a heavy New York accent) “Mindful? what does that mean? I just want to pick it up and workout.” He seemed irritated and pretty confused. It was a real eye opener for me in many ways. Not that I am surprised people aren’t mindful when they train, but that they don’t even get that mindfulness is a part of training. I personally can’t train without being mindful, I have run out of luck when it comes to that so it just has to be a part of what I do.
Mindlessness is Status Quo
Myself and Sr. SFG Jeremy Layport were teaching a StrongFirst Kettlebell Course this weekend and we found ourself repeating over and overagain to be mindful to all the participants.
