Are you thinking about joining a gym but feel like a fish out of water just considering stepping onto the treadmill? Maybe you’re worried you’ll choose the wrong equipment, or you can’t shake off the feeling that everyone’s eyes are on you as you attempt your first deadlift. I got you fitness friend—my latest podcast episode is your ultimate guide to becoming a gym aficionado and choosing the exercise equipment that’ll make you feel like a pro!  Here's a breakdown of what I cover...


Find Your Fitness Family

First things first: the gym is a smorgasbord of fitness opportunities, and not all gyms are created equal. To find your perfect match, consider playing the field with Groupon deals. This savvy strategy lets you snag reasonably priced passes to try out different gyms. It’s like speed dating, but with dumbbells and treadmills! Take the time to visit at various times of the day to really soak in the vibe—each gym has its own unique energy that might just resonate with yours.


Make It a Habit, Make It Your Habitat

As with any good relationship, commitment is key. Regular attendance not only helps you get fitter but also turns the gym from a house of horrors into your own personal playground. You’ll start to feel right at home among the weights and cardio machines.


Dress for Success and Plan to Impress

Now, let’s talk about confidence. It’s not just about the biceps and quads you’re building—it’s also in the clothing you wear! Wear gym clothes that makes you feel good is like putting on your armor. Pair that with a structured workout plan crafted by a fitness professional, and you’re not just ready to exercise; you’re ready to conquer!


Sometimes the Mind Is the Limit

Before you set foot in the gym, get your head in the game. Remember, everyone else is likely too focused on their own gains to notice yours. Bring along your favorite tunes or an engrossing podcast to keep you pumped and distracted from any self-conscious thoughts.


Home Sweet (Home) Gym

I get it—not everyone’s a social butterfly fluttering around the gym floor. For those who prefer the peace of their own space, home workouts are a great alternative. Weigh the pros and cons of convenience versus the need for a dedicated, distraction-free zone.


Equip Yourself with Knowledge

Let’s dive into the gear that gets you there. Free weights? Machines? Cable setups? Each has its place. Free weights offer the beauty of natural movement and muscle control. Machines give you stability and guidance. And cable machines? They’re the versatile middle ground for those who want a bit of both.
