Many women feel intimidated by the weightlifting side of the gym. It took a lot of courage to consistently venture over where these super-fit men did their routines. As I would work out I just know they were saying to themselves “What is this fat girl doing lifting weights she needs to be with the others doing endless cardio. Well as I learned if you have to pick cardio vs. weights you always chose weights. As I was and still am a ‘beginner’ something would haunt me at night, ending up as a meme/gif online.
Okay don’t get me wrong I do get a good laugh at most,
I know a lot have been fabricated
When I could see my self in some just because I didn’t know the proper form or didn’t know how to use a machine, it truly haunted me
I did a lot of research. First I went down to the gym when it was empty and wrote down all of the names of machines with brand names and all. Then I YouTubed every machine and found every tutorial I could find.
The next time I was down at the gym I didn’t care about any of that cause honestly I was focused on getting my workout done even though I did all that research.So if your like me and have an anxiety of phones being pulled out and weird shots of you taken with god awful captions the best thing you can do is know you’re their for a reason, and so are they.
Still don’t forget to laugh at yourself!
