Stepping foot in the gym is a daunting task. Fear, anxiety, and self doubt set in as you begin your fitness quest in an intimidating enviornment. Luckily, you are not alone. We all suffer from bouts of fear and anxiety.
Growing up with a crippling fear of public speaking, I felt helpless and tended to avoid any situation that evoked such dreadful feelings. This approach did nothing but increase those negative feelings. I was stuck.
The fix? Taking the first step and facing your fear head on.
The funny thing about fear is that it isnt real.
New Year, new members. We've seen the trends where a new member shows up right around new year with the intention of becoming fit/healthy, only to quit a few days or weeks later. We've seen how busy the gym gets when there is an influx of new members. Most of the regulars at the gym are happy when these people leave so that things can return to normal for them. For most people who works out regularly, the frustration is in the lack of available equipments as well as seeing the uneducated masses trying to figure out what to do.
