How To Feel Less Anxious When It Comes To The Gym

Firstly, lets talk gym anxiety, trust us – everyone struggles with this at some point!

It could be that you are attending the gym for the first time and are not quite sure where to start when it comes to the machinery or maybe you are worried it’s all eyes on you… Thing is, everyone has to start somewhere!

 

Here are some tips that will help overcome those fitness fears:

#1. Sign up to a class, having an instructor talk you through might help. Similar to this if you think personal training might work out better for you then look into that option.

#2. Could you find a gym buddy? Maybe ask a friend if they would be willing to try out the new class with you.

#3. Wear clothes you feel 100% comfortable working out in.

#4. Playlists! Seriously, make yourself a playlist to get you pumped and hold your focus.

#5. Try to remember nobody is judging you, everyone is there for the same reason.

With your hands out in front of you, start to squat down. When your hands reach the ground, pop your legs straight back into a pushup position.

Jump your feet up to your palms by hinging at the waist. Get your feet as close to your hands as you comfortably can.

Stand up straight, bringing your arms above your head and jump.

This is one rep. Complete 3 sets of 10 reps.

 

Be sure to remember to only workout as much as you feel comfortable doing so.
