Now, with this title there is either two ways you will think: the first being, 'I'm interested in hearing what kind of personalities and traits these guys possess' or 'Yeah right, how could I ever possibly date a self-absorbed, obsessive, narcissistic twit?'
Well, never say never.
We are aware of the numerous articles that empower the female lifters - and you know what? They aren't half wrong.
After doing my own personal research with 5 of my top guy lifting friends/instagram followers here is what they had to say about themselves, that made them a better person after becoming an advocate of lifting:
1. They're Dedicated
It's very difficult to segregate yourself from the norm and set yourself out to achieve goals that seem impossible. Anyone who shows a healthy dedication to fitness (or anything else for that matter) says a lot about the type of person they will be when it comes time to raise a family. Their devotion over a long, continuous period of time will reflect into their personal relationships as well.
2. They're Patient
They understand that results take time and do not happen over night. They will input the work needed to achieve the maximum output. These men understand that obstacles and failures are inevitable but it's always knowing that they have to start over that has tested their patience.
3. They're Understanding
There is always a time where things get tough but lifters put down their head and grind through the workload. Life is full of stresses and issues. It's how well they can understand the situation and move forward from it. They also understand your frustrations when you aren't achieving your goals, they understand your insecurities, and most of all they understand your body.
4. They're Supportive (and vice versa)
These guy lifters love the support they receive from their partner. Although, they don't necessarily want to work out with you, it doesn't mean that they do not want to go to the gym with you. They love being over to glance at you doing something that is a dear passion to him. It makes him feel at ease when he knows he has someone to do cardio with or help him put up that last rep. You are his team.
5. They're Romantic
They can sweep you off your feet, literally. They love to cook, and will be more than willing to make it a table for 2. Their frequent gym attendance releases endorphins enhancing mood and boosts testosterone which calls for frequent play in the bedroom.
6. They're Passionate
When they find something they love, they hold onto it dearly including their dating partner. They understand that their lifestyle is not the easiest to comprehend and when they find someone who appreciates it, they will cherish them.
