Pass this gem along to any of the guys in your life who tell themselves the same lies John told himself!
Well, I have one theory (and some personal experience).
My first class was back on September 22nd, 2014. My friend said I would like the workout, but I felt a little weird and a little nervous because there were maybe two guys in class.
My first thought was, “What am I doing here in a room full of women?” (even though most of the time I would welcome that!). But I felt pretty confident because I workout a lot (so I thought) and said to myself, “This can’t be that hard! You’re in good shape, plus it’s all women in here. How hard can it be?”
Class begins and we start “warming up”: I turn to my friend and say, “What the eff?” but I go along with it. Then after this so-called warm up, we start working out. I am not sure how long into the class I start feeling really sick…like I am going to throw up.
Then, the real sweat starts. I have the sensation that I am going to crap my pants. The thoughts running through my mind are priceless. “How can a guy who is in shape, works out a lot, and has done a marathon - plus countless other running races, not to mention a few 6- hour mountain bike races - FEEL LIKE THIS?”
It is simple: I had no clue what “in shape” meant.
That is the essence of Method 360. They say that knowledge is power. Well, I was the guy with the dunce cap on trying not to shit his brains out while trying not to puke at the same time.
By now you may have spit your morning coffee at the electronic device you’re reading this on, wondering what the hell this has to do with “it’s NOT raining men”! Simple, men are dumb! Only kidding!
Men may feel intimidated because there are so many women in the class; men don’t want to look silly or weak in front of women. I struggled with that a little bit myself. Now when I workout, I draw inspiration from all the Warrior Princesses in the room.
I leave you with this: to the Warriors I workout with...challenge some of your guy friends to workout - but remember their egos are fragile…so…maybe have them go to class when you are not there. And men…just get in here.
Try it once. And leave your ego at the door.
