Comment on WIN! // Plantronics BackBeat Fit by Abe Viljoen.

It’s 4:30am and I am ready to roll, my kit is packed, my trusty earphones in my pocket. I am about to enter my Mecca, my hallowed ground, where no one else matters. This is my time, this is my religion, this is my empire.

It’s me, my music and the cold hard steel of the barbells, dumbbells and plates.
When the music starts I enter the zone, weight up, weight down, repeat.

All things take strain, muscles burn, plates crash as limits are hit.
Time is cruel on many things and today tragedy strikes, the bar falls short, a cable is snagged, the music stops.
The snarled cable dangles, it’s bronze guts exposed, a victim of the battleground.

It’s 4:30am and I am ready to roll, my kit is packed. I am about to enter my Mecca, my hallowed ground, where no one else matters. This is my time, this is my religion, this is my empire.

It’s me and the cold hard steel of the barbells, dumbbells and plates.
