Playing hockey is a fun recreational sport and can lead to many opportunities. Graeme discovered a passion for hockey the first time he stepped on the ice. From his first skate his focus was improving himself because he had a drive to compete.
It was not long before Graeme developed his skill to a point where he was an asset on the ice. Graeme was fast, smart and had a hard and accurate shot. He could read plays to anticipate his opponents actions. No matter how hard he tried to skate there was something missing from his game that held him back from accomplishing what he wanted on the ice.
During games Graeme would skate hard and lead his team to many victories. There were a few occasions, though, his strength would limit him. Graeme decided he did not want to be weaker than other skaters on the ice. He know he wasn't going to be the best at everything or the strongest player on the ice but he had to try. Graeme's choice was to commit himself to being a well rounded player to accomplish many things in differernt situations. This included being competent with the puck, being agile on the sled as well as being strong.
Graeme had seen people working out before but never really been in a gym. Where should he start? Graeme had heard once that a well built structure starts with a strong foundation and thought the same applied to working out. Graeme Did a few crunches and got on the bench press to lift some weights. He did not have a plan but learned how the machinery works.
Eventually his interest and commitment to working out grew and people offered help. Graeme found people can be generous when he asked for help. Because of their help he was able to excel at his sport and learn some new things about being dedicated to success.
