Overcoming ‘Gymtimidation’

Gymtimidation is a real thing

A 2019 article stated 1 in every 4 people suffered from this so I thought I would delve into it and how to THINK

A lot of people that I speak to 4-6 weeks after joining us are blown away by how much better they FEEL

Physical benefits obviously a bonus but it’s really that mental aspect that changes the game for them

And they always say about how long they WANTED to do something but just physically couldn’t get through the door

Worrying about not being able to do what we do (we make sure you can do everything personally at your own level/pace)

Worrying about what other people will think (everyone is so focused on their own game & what they are doing to worry about that)

How fit other people are is irrelevant and they were all once in the position you may be in

It’s always MIND over body

Habit change and getting used to coming to the gym can be a grind and you can feel real friction when you start

I know this because all I have ever done is work in the industry and I feel like that some days

Getting a coach, joining a gym and getting more support and accountability can always help BUT it’s always going to start with YOU

So that initial point has got to come from within

Following that, people like ourselves can always help

That’s why we are known as the Gym For People That Don’t Like Gyms

Had previous bad experiences?

‘Failed’ in the past and don’t want to go through that process again

90% of our members have been in the same boat

Came to us with ‘gymtimidation’ and now they love the Gym

Just like one of our members Caroline

You can see what she had to say here on what she thought it would be like

…and what it has been like since joining


And please try your best to grind through gymtimidation

As tough as it will be

As hard work as it is

Your body and mind will thank you for it on the other side 🙂
