Do you like paradoxes? Here's one:
You can never be "early" for training, only late.
You are either in the gym working out or you are trying to get there. If you get to the gym and stand around waiting for class to start, you are wasting time that could be put to much better use. There is no such thing as "downtime" in a gym; there is only ready or not ready and that's it.
Mobility? Extra warming up? Shadow and solo drills? The prehab you constantly neglect? Some goddamn push-ups? Maybe there is someone else standing around thinking they are "early"; grab them and get going on something.
Do not be the student who shows up 25 minutes before class, then start cold like the last person in the door does. What was the point to being in the gym if you watched the minutes tick by one by one and did nothing with them? Be your own coach, get started, and benefit from the gift of time before the class even begins.
So next time you walk into the gym a half hour before class starts, you are not early.
You are ready.
