Gymtimidation and How to get over it!

Have you ever suffered this?


So what is it???

It’s people who find the gym and exercise intimidating, more common than you think with males and females.

Now I get it.

Even for me who has all the qualifications and experience of gyms you could need.

Who coaches people every day (well except Saturday afternoons and Sundays)

I still get it every time I walk into a packed commercial gym.

That awkward feeling everyone is staring at you, but heres the thing.

In reality nobody cares everyones just trying to do their best.

It’s why some people prefer to train on their own or in a group of people with the same goals.

It’s why weight watchers and slimming world are so popular.

Cos I’m a bit anti -social and can’t be arsed with time wasters or cheesy salesman if possible I try to avoid all the BS in the fitness industry, because most of it does my head in.

I prefer exact methods that work.

I use science, numbers and results.

The words 4 week fat blasts, 7 day slim downs, detox blah blah blah

What puts you off going to the gym?

It should be a positive experience, but for many it’s not.

like I said it’s both men and women who can suffer from it.

It’s why some people sometimes choose to train 1-2-1 and hire a trainer.

Hopefully a good one

Don’t forget I’m running a 30 day fitness and weight loss challenge in October

It could be what you need to kick start your training.

There’s no reason to fear the gym or exercise

You just need to find out how to train properly, set some goals and unleash your potential.

Looking forward to hearing from you


P.S It’s not weakness asking for help, it’s pretty dam smart. Come join 26 other people looking to shift some timber!
