Strength is practical


This weekend our neighbors were preparing for a move, loading a big Uhaul truck. They needed some help loading, so Mike helped them out. Now aside from his mad real-life Tetris packing skills, Mike has a really practical asset - strength. It didn't matter what they needed to get on the truck or how high it needed to go, he could do it. I saw him jerk a large, heavy box right over his head (yes, he actually jerked it). It's great to be strong because you can do useful things like this, whether it's for yourself or to help out a friend or neighbor.

How does your strength stack up? Can you jump in and help with jobs or is your physical ability a limiting factor? If you've been coming in and training with us regularly, I bet you'd surprise yourself with what you can do. Look for opportunities to put your strength to use, to help yourself and others.
