Haha, my husband convinced me to write this post so i have his full permission to do so.
Like the title says, i am trying to get him into the fitfam, but its not been easy i tell you! Many people think just because i loveeeee to workout and train people that it will be a breeze or they expect to see a six pack husband next to me or at least one that works out often. Well, not the case.
I have always been the workout crazy one, so sometimes i really do not understand why some people do not want to workout half like i do! I could list so many great reasons to workout besides the physical benefits. But yes, he doesn’t like to workout, in fact hardly thinks about it. He is more of the financial/money guy constantly thinking up extra streams of income ways. He sometimes gets this FIRE to hit the gym and will go for a week straight then the fire runs out lol. You can sometimes here me count down the days to myself lol. The days he does go, he mainly does the treadmill or elliptical cause he gets bored with weights. The reverse is the case for me lol so i don’t get it either haha. Therefore he uses the gym in our apartment while i use that and LA Fitness. I remember the day we went to sign me up, we were both shown round the facility. The conversation between my husband and the guy at the gym went something like this:
Guy: so will you be signing up as well?
Hubby: no reason
Guy: we have great equipment yalayal
Hubby: i know that but still not interested
Guy: immmm okay (then faces me)
Lol, nearly cracked up there, he totally backed the guy off without blinking!
Anyway, so right now i just try not to force it or anything, i mean like i tell my clients, i can only give you the workout, meal plans, necessary motivation and support but i won’t drag you to the gym and workout for you or cook your meals for you. Totally up to you! I just try to live out the fit life, ask him when i am going to the gym in the apartment if he will like to join which sometimes he agrees to do so just not consistently enough for my fitness satisfaction lol. Some days however, he does go by himself without me even mentioning it
He loves punching bags but the class hours at my gym are ridiculous and do not work with his schedule, so maybe we should get a punching bag at home???
He does love seeing my transformation and supports me 100% so thats amazing! That being said, i love my hubby beyond words and he is the best thing that ever happened to me besides being born into this world to the best family and being born-again for Christ! I love to watch him transform into the man God created him to be spiritually, so even though he isn’t a member of team fitfam yet, he is a member of team Godfam and thats all that really matters at the end of the day isn’t it?
