Weight room talk

There’s a special language shared among those who frequent the weight room.

Small nods of the head and hand gestures accompanied by, “you on this?” “Spot me?”

Never a full sentence.

The weight room is a perfect balance of defending and sharing space.

Everyone is on a similar mission, but few have the same reason for that mission.

It’s a place of community and individuality. Of beauty and grit.

And hopefully you’re blessed to workout in a place where there are all kinds of people, in all shapes and sizes, and all kinds of clothing. It makes the nods, gestures and half sentences that much more amazing.
