Are You Overweight and Scared to go to the Gym?

Don’t Be!

You should not be scared to go to the gym at all. I understand why some people would be scared to go for the first time, or even the second time. No one wants to be called fat and laughed at or looked at funny. Think about it this way, you are doing something to better yourself and maybe your family. That’s the way you should be looked at!

Don’t Worry About Others

Don’t even look at them. Focus on doing one thing, getting fit and in great shape! You will be glad you started to workout because you will feel great and look great. Remember, if you do look at others look at them the way you want to be looked at. Give them a nice smile 🙂

The First Time

The first time you go to the gym, you might feel uncomfortable. Don’t worry, everyone feels this no matter how big or how small. Just keep reminding yourself to go do you! You are doing something that is life changing and to better yourself.

24 Hour Fitness

One way that may help get you to the gym and not feel overwhelmed, is check out a 24 hour fitness center like Anytime Fitness. You can go early in the morning or later at night when it is not so busy. This is also helpful so you can use any machine you want.

Classes

Taking classes is another great way to lose weight and not feel overwhelmed. Everyone in that class is there for one reason, to better themselves just like you are!
