The hardest barrier to overcome when thinking of getting fit and healthier is the prospect of stepping into an often male dominated sweaty gym. It can be so daunting if you feel overweight or uncomfortable to begin with and your goals feel so unattainable.
One simple thing to remember is EVERYONE starts somewhere. I remember the first time I walked into a gym and feeling completely out of my comfort zone and somewhat overwhelmed by the alien equipment. The one thing that eased my uncomfortable feeling was seeing men and women of all ages and levels of fitness all with one thing in common, they all wanted to make changes in their lives.
For me, the gym has connected me with like minded individuals and many have become great friends.
If you don’t feel like you can face a gym environment, don’t worry, you will get to that point, why not train with a friend in your local park or find fitness classes in a community hall or train together at home using a programme like my LinaLeaner plan. Together we CAN do this…
