It all happened in December 2008, just a few days before the new year. My brother was putting me through my first ‘real’ workout. I had just started exercising on my own a week prior but it wasn’t anything close what I was being put through now. Up against a lifetime of inactivity, I could feel my body pulling me back to being comfortable. Looking at my brother, half way into the workout, I told him “This isn’t for me, I’m done.” I quit.
