🍃Coping With Gym Anxiety🍃
Hey guys! Happy Monday🍂
I wanted to talk about something that’s more serious, and that a lot of people in the gym deal with, even myself at one point. When I first started attending gyms, I would get insecure about doing things wrong and if people were staring at me. It just made the experience so much less enjoyable😕It’s easy to feel insecure when you’re in a setting that’s new and intimidating. But don’t fret! This fear is indeed very normal😊
Here are some tips that can help you feel more at ease when at the gym:
💚Bring a friend! It’s better to bring one more experienced so they can help you, but if you don’t have one that is, just being anyone you feel comfortable with that can motivate you!
💚 GO IN WITH A PLAN! If you don’t, you’ll just end up confused as to what to do, wasting a good hour of your life.
💚 Practice the exercises at home! If you plan on doing a new exercise today, practice it first at home if you can. Which lessens the chance of making a mistake at the gym!
💚 Wear clothing that makes you feel good! Whatever clothing that makes you feel confident and allows you to workout in, wear it!
💚 Realize that NO ONE IN THE GYM GIVES A SHIT ABOUT YOU! Refrain from thinking everyone is staring at you, they’re not. Even if they are, you’re there to get fucking gains, not what other people think of you! If someone ever makes you feel uncomfortable, tell a gym employee.
Hope this helps some of y’all and thanks for reading🥰 We all in this shit together ya dig🤪🤪
