The Crow's Gym Thoughts: Vol. 06

Crow's #Gym: Vol. 06
If you can't help don't hurt. Standing around laughing when someone is doing something wrong makes you an asshole. Taking a minute to show someone the right way to exercise makes you a rock star. Don't believe me? You should see how I get treated when I walk into the gym. It's not because I am a meat head, it's because I am friendly and helpful.

The Movement:
