Today the gym was packed so I was a bit surprised to see that every machine was in use...except the lonely little stair stepper machines in the back. So I hopped on.

Thai women especially rarely use any strength-building equipment. Not everyone of course, and I'm not sure why, but that's just been my observation. So today, when a woman came up to me and pointed to the machine next to me, I was a bit confused. She had never used one before, and the instructions were in English! I hadn't even noticed before.

I got to help her learn how to use it, and was reminded of the first time when I stepped into the gym feeling so confused and embarassed to ask anyone for help. With that memory in mind, I was so happy to offer it.

Later, a man stepped onto the machine looking equally confused, and I watched as she then showed him how to use it.

I was reminded of Spark because I feel like I lit a spark as I watched her help another. Women here really don't use strength equipment much, as I have said, but I know that this would help them so much to prevent arthritis and other accidents as they age. I just felt good to have the opportunity to help someone on her path to better health. I hope that she spreads it on :)
