Going to the gym for some is the best part of the day, while some people just hate it and feel stressful whenever they have to go. While we all go to the gym with the same thing in mind – we want to improve our health and looks, it seems that we all don’t share the same enthusiasm and motivation. But, why is it so? Why can’t we all love going to the gym? While there are many reasons, experts say that the people who don’t like to go to the gym usually feel that way because of two reasons – either they are going to the gym because they have to lose weight and deprive themselves or they are among people who found it difficulty doing anything sports-relate because from early age they were not so good at sports.
Whatever the reason is, one thing is for sure – it doesn’t have to be that way. The time has come to face the fears and start working out in the gym. What most of the people think is that others in the gym will laugh at them, however, first thing you need to know is that no one was “born” in the gym and since being little they knew everything – chances are that bodybuilders you see are working out for years to get the muscles they dreamed of, but once they started just like you – scared of what other people think and scared of failing. Look at them now – they could be your motivation!
