I would say that Rules 1,2,3 and this one are possibly the MOST important life lessons I teach in my own home and in my own gym.
Rule #67 comes with great anticipation. If anyone is called out on it, they know and should be embarrassed because this one is VITAL.
Rule #67 simply stated means NO COMPLAINING!
I have said that I will empathize with people, but simply won't sympathize. We ALL have issues. Nothing is perfect in anyone's life.
The moment I even hear "I'm not complaining (here it comes folks) BUT...." means you are about to whine like a lil' bitch!
No one really cares about:
How much sleep you didn't get
How sore your legs are from the workout two days before
How angry you are over current politics
Your take on weather
Your in laws
Your lack of weight loss
Your lack of strength gain
Your gym lifts
Your platform lifts for that matter
Your lack of money
Your lack of time off
Your nutritional plan
Your sex life (well...maybe)
Your take on social media
NO ONE FUNKING CARES! YOU do. I certainly don't and when you start the bitch session, I will say nothing, walk to my White Board and just right "67" on it and EVERYONE in the gym will ask, "Who broke rule 67, Coach?" When I announce who the culprit was, the walk of shame comes directly into play.
Try this...Go for 24 hours without a single complaint! Know if you do, I write "67" on your front door as a reminder that you bitched. Be aware of how many conversations revolve around someone dumping their complaints on YOU and count how many "67" you hand out.
Rule #67 STOP COMPLAINING!!!
