Gymtimidation - : 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 or anxiety of being judged based on one’s fitness level, body size, clothing and/or uncertainty involving equipment.
Scared of going to a gym?
This was me before we opened Fitness Pod...a new way to workout.
As much as I wanted to get fit, get healthy and lose weight whenever I thought of going to a gym, I couldn’t help but assume:
I wouldn’t fit in.
I’d hurt myself.
I’d embarrass myself.
And basically, a gym wasn’t for me because I wasn’t “the sort of person” to train at the gym. I’d put myself in a box and I wouldn’t let myself out. If all of this sounds familiar though, fear not: FitnessPod is your solution.
If, like I did, you carry with you the fear of entering a gym, the fear of:
Not knowing what you’re doing.
Navigating an unfamiliar environment.
Having people look down at you.
Then join FitnessPod. We have completely private workout pods and qualified friendly staff to show you what to do.
The only gym etiquette you need know is lock your pod door! That way nobody can see you and you can immerse yourself in your workout without those butterfly's of embarrassment in your stomach.
And before you realise it the love of FitnessPod working out will sneak up on you and you'll be hooked .. A regular 'podder' - Just like I am!
You can find out all about FitnessPod from our website www.fitnesspod.im or why not contact me. I'm happy to answer any questions and try to allay any fears you may have.
