The fight of an iron-game athlete is a constant struggle, a titanic battle waged within of striving for dreams against daily challenges. Each of us knows these challenges, the constant struggles and strains and for that matter the endless pushing against the grain of a society that is seemingly content at being “average” in a culture of mediocrity.
However, “mediocrity” is not suitable for my vocabulary or for that matter the countless many who have strode into a weight-room with a dream and the willingness to work towards their goals. Still this battle is not easy when society is so content with a docile lifestyle and ultimately the iron game pursuits are for those strong of body and heart.
Invariably this challenge also leads to unique situations where certain gyms are more conducive for training simply because the “banging of the iron” signals “this is a place of work”. Within each of these gyms friendships are made with the bonds of shared goals, which in many cases leads to “training partners”.
The notion of a “training partner” is unique in sport / iron-game as it can just as easily be your oldest friend to a near stranger but regardless of the differences ultimately the great bond of striving for excellence is shared. I’ve had training partners that were my closest friends as a teen to athletes of widely different backgrounds but each of us shared the bond, the unrelenting desire to excel and dedication to exercise, diet and nutrition.
Along with the mix of a proper exercise plan, diet and supplementation, a training partner can be added mix in the elixir to success.
