“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
― Carl Bard
I have many new clients that are hesitant to start group fitness training because they don’t want everyone staring at them.
They don’t want everyone looking at them and judging.
Do you have the same fear?
Is it stopping you from joining a group fitness training session, exercise class, or bootcamp?
Are you worried that you will look like a fool and that everyone will be judging you?
Well let me let all of you in on a little secret….
No one is staring at you.
No one is judging.
They are doing one of these three things:
- If anyone is looking at you, it isn’t in judgment. They are just watching what you are doing so that they know what to do (because they can’t remember the instructions the trainer gave them…yea…I know you all do this.
- Most people working out are too tired and oxygen deprived to really be paying attention to what you are doing! They may seem to be looking your direction, but really they are just staring through you, trying to breath and relax.
- When people are watching, 90% of them are watching and looking to ENCOURAGE not to judge.
No one is judging because WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE, OR WE ARE STILL THERE.
Everyone starts training at a different level.
And everyone I’ve encountered who does group training, really respects that.
We all know how hard it is to be the new guy or gal.
You can feel awkward.
Heck you can feel downright silly, when your body and mind don’t seem to want to communicate.
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve failed or fallen before accomplishing a new move.
(And I know there are some pretty funny bloopers out there of me attempting different things.)
But people aren’t really looking at my failures.
Honestly, they are just waiting to cheer me on when I succeed!
People who join group training aren’t there to judge.
They are there for the camaraderie and the motivation of working out with other people who want to get fitter and stronger.
So stop worrying about everyone staring!
Come join the fun. After your first session, you will realize you don’t have the energy to stare at anyone, let alone judge.
Instead you will find a ton of friends that will cheer you on and push you to become even stronger than you thought possible!
