Being New to the Gym Doesn’t Have to be Intimidating

Being New to the Gym Doesn’t Have to be Intimidating

Silly as it may seem now, when I was first figuring out my workout routine I was petrified of going to the gym alone. Everyone just seemed to know the right way to use all the equipment without having to ask, whereas I had yet to even learn how to use the leg press properly.

It’s comforting to have someone familiar with the more complex machinery by your side when you’re just starting out. That being said, it’s crucial to eventually rid yourself of your figurative training wheels so you can come up with a workout regimen that’s right for you. When in doubt, do your research ahead of time so you know what common mistakes to avoid in order to prevent your workout from being ruined.
