Amir, Sam, and excuses

I decided to try a workout from a trainer I hadn’t seen yet on Apple Fitness+ yesterday – it was a 10 min total body workout by Amir.

I was tired and was dragging my feet on working out. Until the video began to play.

It turned out Amir was an amputee. He’d lost his left leg in an accident, managed to fit a prosthetic leg four years later, and decided to make the most of his second chance by becoming a fitness trainer.

Seeing Amir on the screen felt like the universe asking me – “What’s your excuse again?”

It reminded me of how I felt another day when I realized the trainer, Sam, was many months pregnant.

“What’s your excuse again?”

I had none.

Thanks for the reminder, Amir and Betina.
