Being loyal to me, and to QCKB means you are faithful to yourself. You show up when YOU are supposed to; when YOU say you will. For some it may be 5 times per week and others it may only be 1. That does not make one person more loyal than the other. When I say show up when you are supposed, I mean you show up! You are punctual. You come prepared. Mentally you are where you need to be to train. All this needs to happen on a constant basis. You show up ready to do what you need to do in your training that day. Be it once, or five times a week.
I have said many times loyalty has it’s privileges. And it does. Those privileges are more for you and given to yourself than anything I can ever provide you. It is earned, not given. There is no reason to walk in and have a sense of entitlement because you pay more or train more often than someone else. Everyone has what they have when they earn it; when they are loyal to themselves; when they do the necessary work to get what they want in their training.
The above picture is supposed to represent how loyal you should be to yourself. I want you to be loyal to yourself until the very end, until you can’t go any farther, and then some more. I want you to show up. I want you to do the work. I want you to ask me why we’re doing the things we are doing in our programs so you know the why’s and the outcomes. I want you to be loyal to yourself so you can be a better version of you.
THAT, is how I, how we at Queen City Kettlebell define what it means to be loyal to us, to yourself.
