Embarresment/being teased because of training

Post by ImpossibleIsNothing6 » 11 Nov 2010, 10:25

I train at a ova lright near my school, after the bell rings, i go there, and its convenient. The "jocks" train there to doing there boxing cardio sh*t. while i do my sprints ball control whatever. training isnt as normal here as it may be to you guys, im here in australia. what should i do, i cant really find another oval, unless i want a 30 min walk home. Should i just look at it as "They wont be laughing when im making hundreds of thousands of dollars more than them" ?

Screw them. If you want to be a footballer so bad, then you'll focus on yourself and not care about what others think.

similar thing for me in Victoria.. I usually train while the footy players are training, they all think footballs for pussies pfft. If you've got someone to train with then that'd help, otherwise they'l get over it pretty soon

Just remember why you're doing what you're doing, and that should be enough to motivate you, they're just another trivial obstacle you have to overcome.

Good luck ;).

Definitely, people don't think it's "cool" unless you're training with a team, it's all a bunch of crap, you gotta do what you gotta do without caring about what others think.

In fact, if these people had half a mind, they'd start admiring you for your dedication.

Tip: just try and look super serious and focused, do some hardcore stuff when you notice people watching, show off any ball skills you've got as if it's nothing. And an iPod plugged in will help with the overall image.

Edit : Of course, that last paragraph^ is just for appearance, if you care what people think. If you don't whatsoever, then all the power to you, but you obviously do, or you wouldn't have made this thread. But it's only natural to care, perfectly normal.

Once again, good luck ;).

Yeah man, keep your head up and do your drills. If they're making fun of you, it's foolish. I do my training and workouts in a gym that's largely used by rugby players, but we get all kinds, even down to badminton players and synchronized swimmers. I guess we are lucky that everyone supports each other and no one scoffs at the specialized workout program of another.

I mean, sure some guys can bench a lot, but would they have the balance and poise to do some exercises that a ballerina might do? Probably not. They are just immature and you should do your best to ignore them and keep a positive attitude about where your training can get you.

Yo bro I kinda feel you, when I train alone and Im going with mad intensitites I don't like people looking at me.. I like to go to the fields I train at in specific times, where the amount of people thre is reduced- I don't know if I'm a pussy, but its my training, and I don't want people starring at me and talking about me when I'm trying to bust a nut-

I'd go as far to say Atlantic Canada. ;) I worked out at gyms in Halifax and surrounding area for a bit and got the same kinda feel.

I'mma just say it: Screw Alberta! :p

I feel for you bro... In Malaysia, practicing alone is weird... Ppl staring at me weirdly when I'm doing some cones practices , jugglings and shootings...

Maybe this is the reason why my country sux at football so much... The commitment towards the game is totally different from country like Brazil and Argentina...

Shame to say ... A few days ago Malaysia losed 3-1 to Iran :oops:
The 1 goal is from penalty...

Not that I dun love my country but they ought to do better...
