I tend to scroll through the skimble world updates just to see what’s going on out there and over the last few months have seen a lot of negativity, macho comments, trolling and general stuff which has made me question why I joined Skimble in the first place... Which was to live a healthier lifestyle, stay motivated and most importantly, HAVE FUN coz life is stressful enough!!

So here’s my challenge to YOU! (not a push-up or ab crunch in sight).. If you go to the gym today, or workout with other people around you, go up to a stranger and give them a compliment or positive comment!! Let’s spread the skimble love!!!!

Here’s mine...

Yesterday I saw a kid (16-18) who has been coming to my gym for about a year now. He began with a group of 4-5 kids and is the only one left that I regularly see training. He’s even been coming in with a broken ankle and pushes hard every time he’s there. Yesterday I told him it was great to see that he’d not quit and that he’d really packed on muscle over the last year, then I went back to my workout.

Have a great day, TRAIN HARD and remember... It’s nearly Christmas!!!!!

Thanks Duncan, I've been guilty of not commenting so much on people's workouts but then I've been apart from my fiancée for 6 months so kinda had a reason not to be the most jovial of people!!! Just trying to bring a little bit of sunshine back to the skimble I used to know. Far too much growling and testosterone for my liking

No dramas mate. Fully understand. I had to wait for mine to come , for 7 months, from Scotland to Oz. Doing immigration, legally, fully sucks. All the best bro.
