Do any of you guys fear the gym? If so, why???? Comment down below❣️⬇️.
I actually didn’t step foot in an actual gym for almost 1.5 years! I did all of my workouts from home. I didn’t see any reason to get a membership (plus i was afraid of boys, co Ed can kick rocks). I ended up finding a women’s only local gym here (praise be to the lord!!) and it has literally saved me.
I know not all girls have the opportunity to go to a women’s only gym... so here’s my best advice!
-home workouts. You CAN get strong as heck from home. I did! I loved working out at home but i wanted extra challenge from weights.
-soundproof headphones!! That way if there is a boy bothering you can just pretend you don’t hear him. For the guys, not all the women in the gym wanna talk so please do us a favor and leave her alone 😬.
-cute gym clothes! When i first started to work out i got myself “gifts” for sticking with it EVERY 4 weeks. I did that for quite a while haha... new gym shoes, a blender, leggings! I know we can’t all afford it, so maybe save up for 12 weeks and buy yourself something nice!
-a good trainer! When i first started lifting i religiously followed @gracefitguide which i loved! It helped me learn the ropes of weightlifting. Now i use @blspringfit guide bc hers is powerlifting based and gives me a more in depth understanding of the lifting world.
-a gym bag! Honestly not necessary but if you have a bag that holds all your gym essentials it makes going easier! I just carry my workout clothes in raw haha i don’t have a cute portable device.
-companionship!!! Meaning delve into the fitness world and make friends. I’ve got so many online friends now bc of this whole fitness thing. When i first started, having a WhatsApp group of my pals helped so much with getting started and staying on schedule.
-make a Fitness Instagram! This by far helped me so much, just with staying on track and doing it for me. I posted my meals, progress pics, selfies.. you name it! I had no idea this account would grow, i just made it for myself to keep track of goals - i still use it to this day 😇.
I hope this somewhat helped!
