one day it'll all make sense.

bridge the gap…

The gender gap still exists, and is painfully obvious at times…  I’ve been formulating this post in my head for a few days now and the hurdle I’ve struggled to overcome is the one that governs how to say what I’m feeling without offending anyone.  Today I decided, ‘F IT. 

A coworker of mine got involved in a fitness program called “man camp” at a local gym along the same timeline as my own 100 day challenge at my gym.  We both are huge fitness enthusiasts who swap new exercise ideas and share workout tips.  After finishing my challenge, I was not overly impressed with the program I was involved in and looking for something new.  When I asked about the programs available at Dave’s gym he offered to check it out for me.  The response I got was not impressive.  “Sorry, man camp is for dudes.”  Was the response Dave got from his trainer.  “There’s a bootcamp that’s just for chicks.”  Let’s clarify for a minute…  I may be only 5’4” (on a tall day) and weigh in at 120lb (ish), but I am no “chick”.  I was looking to play with the boys as my goals are along the same lines as theirs, to gain strength and build muscle.  I can already squat/deadlift more than my body weight.  I just wanted a new challenge to help push myself to do more…  I won’t give up though.  I’ll just continue to look for somewhere that appreciates a woman who is stronger than the average “chick”
