How to get over your fear of the gym

Plan for the unknown and “what-ifs”

Fear of the unknown can be paralyzing. Instead of letting your fears control you, plan for them.

For example:

  • What if you don’t know how to use the equipment?
    What’s the worst thing that can happen?
  • What if the gym is crowded?

  • What if you can’t keep up in the class?
    What’s the worst thing that can happen?
“To worry is like rocking in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but gets you nowhere.” ~Unknown
