A Helping Hand

Sometimes, we find it hard to ask for help out of fear of appearing weak, but it's a necessity. We all need a helping hand at some point. Use your training to apply this. Ask for help when you may not be comfortable during training, and it can help you do the same in life. Most people are willing to help in both fitness and life if you just ask.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help!

In training and in life in general, we all need a helping hand at some point. You know when you’re pushing your last set and realize that to challenge yourself, you may need a spot to achieve your last rep? Or you want some advice on a different exercise to change things up or you’re not sure how to do an exercise? You can ask someone.

For the most part, people are happy or at least willing to help. You just have to ask. However, be respectful. Don’t disturb the person you are asking for help. If the person is mid-set or helping a client, don’t disturb them. Also, if you have asked someone for help, don’t waste their time by taking a while to get ready for your set, or by asking for help for every set of every exercise. If you’re asking a PT for help or advice, don’t overdo it. Most don’t mind to give you a bit of advice, but any more than that is literally what they do for a living.

In life as well, we all need a helping hand sometimes. Often, it’s not easy to ask for help even when it’s a necessity sometimes out of fear of appearing weak (this is something you can work on in training). Maybe it’s just an interaction with another human, or a friendly chat. Most people are willing to help if you just ask.

I’ve seen it so often in fitness and in life; people being afraid to ask for help out of fear of the others response. Don’t be afraid to ask, but ask respectfully.

Founding partner at LIFE ON FITNESS. I'm a fitness enthusiast (not a fitness 'professional'). Being massively obese, I started my fitness journey at around the age of 14. It wasn't the cool thing to do yet, and didn't even know what my life was missing. It only got better as I researched, tried, studied, and tested evermore fitness elements and knowledge. I write my thoughts with the hopes of inspiring even one person to achieve their life goals as well as their fitness goals. But most importantly enjoy and get the best out of life.
