There’s a reason it’s called “training”

I’ve had a few clients recently who have been frustrated when they couldn’t do certain exercises perfectly the first time. It’s understandable. Between fear and not wanting to look stupid it’s hard not to be frustrated when you’re not good at something. However, in those situations I like to remind them (and myself) that it’s called “training,” not “doing.” If we were all perfect at everything, or only did what we were already good at, it would be great for our egos, but not exactly good for our bodies.

Learning doesn’t stop when we graduate from high school or college. Learning is a lifelong endeavor. Sometimes, the only way to learn is to screw up, or, as the poster below says, “enjoy doing it poorly.”
