I'm Scared Of The Gym!
Hey Guys x
Sorry there wasn't a blog post on Friday, I was at the cinema seeing Split. There will be a review tomorrow so come back and see it!
Today, I'm talking about working out! I never thought this post would come because I never thought I'd be the kind of person who regularly exercises, as bad as that sounds!
But on January 1st I made the New Years resolution to start working out, and I've been good with that so far. I now work out at least 4 times a week using a 'FitnessBlender' workout on YouTube.
However, the one thing I've found out about myself through doing this, is that I'm scared of people seeing me work out.
Even at home. I usually save my workouts til between 11pm and 1am so that everyone is asleep by the time I work out so that they won't see me.
And this extends to the gym. If I don't want people at home to see me, it makes sense that I don't want random strangers in a gym to see me.
The thing is, a gym has just opened up literally a 3 minute walk from me, and I can't go because I'm scared of people seeing me.
But it's not just people seeing me, I'm scared of the gym in general.
I worry about not being able to work the machines, or not working out right because I don't really have any experience.
Honestly, I'm scared of putting myself in a situation where something embarrassing could happen. And I know that this sounds ridiculous, but I can't control the way my brain works, as annoying as this is.
So I've been working out at home, at night, by myself, and I'm somewhat enjoying it. You should definitely check out the 'FitnessBlender' youtube channel because their workouts are really good.
But I just wonder if there's anyone else that's scared of the gym, like I am.
Or anyone who was scared of the gym, but managed to push through it and now goes to the gym on a regular basis.
Either way, if any of these are you, please let me know because I'd be so interested to hear from you!
Thank you for reading.
