We’ve all been there before.
You pump yourself up pre-workout, saying that you’re going to give it 110% today. As you make your way across the gym floor, that confident feeling fades fast when you realize that the only open treadmill is wedged between two runners who are going freakishly fast – like cheetahs in a full sprint – and nearly every strength machine is taken by sweaty people you’d rather avoid.
Feelings of insecurity are sinking in.
Hello, gym anxiety: that self-conscious, confidence-vanishing feeling one experiences when faced with an intimidating, embarrassing, or potentially awkward situation at the gym. It often involves feelings of fear of being judged based on one’s fitness level and/or uncertainty involving equipment or classes.
You're not alone!
Gym anxiety is universally experienced by many exercisers. It does not discriminate between gender, size, strength, or how fit you are.
Here are six tips for overcoming gym anxiety and making the most of your workout:
#1 Write your workout down before you do it.
#2 Focus on your workout.
#3 Talk to the instructor.
#4 Exercise during off-peak hours.
#5 Bring a friend or fitness mentor.
#6 Have confidence - We Can Help With That!
