We’ve heard the radio ads. We’ve watched the television commercials. We’ve seen the magazine photos. Being a member of a gym is trendy, cool, and makes us healthier and sexier . . . right?
What about ‘going to a gym’ could possibly be intimidating . . . RIGHT?
I mean, aside from the super-fit people, the super-fast people, the super-bendy yogi people, and the super-loud-grunty-weight-lifting people . . . too much wide open space, not enough space, not understanding how to use equipment, not remembering where equipment is, forgetting what the dress code includes, remembering (or forgetting) a locker combination, all the people in class who ‘already know what to do’, remembering when to breathe during exercise(s) . . .
Whoa. Thinking about going just makes me want to plop down on the couch for another episode of [favorite TV show] or read the exciting new book I just started.
But wait a second –
Hmm. All of the benefits of ‘going to the gym’ seem to be great reasons to make my way to the wellness center for some self-care. First, I’ll call [workout buddy name] and see if he/she would like to meet me there for some accountability.
Yeah. No reason to be timid or intimidated. I can do this. I will do this. If I have questions, I can ask.
