Don't Be Gym Timidated!
When the only thing stopping you from working out is your own insecurity, it's time to GET OVER IT.
Carrie Mitchell

The sweaty nakedness of the changing rooms, the Lycra-clad bodies, the complex exercise machines, the intimidating instructors. Is it any wonder we’re so scared of the gym? We all know that feeling when you finally summon up the willpower to go to a class, only to feel all eyes swivel in your direction. ‘They’re judging me’, ‘They think I’m fat’, ‘They can tell my gear is from Asda’, you decide. Is it really any wonder you don’t go back when you’ve just beaten yourself round the head repeatedly with your own insecurities? The funny thing is that even the most honed gym bunny will likely have thought exactly the same things about herself at some stage.
