Finding purpose

Training does not have to be fancy, and you do not need a lot of equipment. What you do need is something heavier than the desire for comfort pulling on you. You need a purpose. You have to have a reason, other than for yourself, for being at the gym at 04:30 in the morning grinding away in the quiet dark alone. When missing a workout feels like breaking a promise or getting caught in a lie, you are training with a goal driven purpose, and you will never miss a workout again.
