Gym Memberships and Working Out in Public

For many people going to the gym is a challenge ridden with anxiety and fear. It is a big step to go from no physical activity to behaving like a natural among all those other gym goers who seem to know exactly how each equipment works.  Everyone agrees that this may be intimidating. But there are ways around it.

Your first tool is to realize that people at the gym are busy working out and therefore do not have time to look at how others perform the exercises.  You also have the option of listening to your own music, which helps you forget that you are in the company of other people. Finally, it is a good idea to practice at home, preferably in front of the TV or your computer where a variety of fitness programs are broadcast for free. 

For example, try to follow along with Gilad and his fitness students as they are working through the exercises. Once you try it, you will realize that working out demands your full attention and concentration. It leaves no opportunity for the distraction of watching other people or of thinking what other people think of  you.
