👋🏼HELLO GYM CONFIDENCE👋🏼
A lot of people, friends and family included, always ask me how I have the confidence to go to the weights section in a gym, that is highly male dominated and can have a few staring people... Most people just get on with their workout as they should, and it’s great.
But it would be wrong to ignore the fact that there are a few people *mostly men* that think it’s acceptable to stare - it is just so UNCOMFORTABLE!! I’ve been there before, one time I was actually on the verge of tears because I felt violated at the way someone was staring at me squat. It’s the sort of thing that just takes a bit of time to learn to ignore it.
You just have to tell yourself not to give a crap and get on with it!! Besides, if they’re staring at you then god damn it’s because you look so FIT 💪🏼💪🏼
You need to own it and follow after the 1000’s of strong girls and bois that have all adapted to overcome the anxiety of it. Besides, if someone specific is really distracting you in the gym and making you v uncomfortable, don’t be afraid to mention it to the gym staff because that’s partly why they’re there! To help you when you need it!
YOU HAVE GOT THIS 💪🏼👊🏼
