Why You Shouldn’t Feel Intimidated At the Gym

The gym is meant to be a place where you strengthen your body, not be intimidated by the bodies of other people.

When I first started going to the gym, years ago, I felt intimidated. I had no idea what I was doing, how to use most of the machines, what correct form was, how to use free weights and I got stared at because I was a twig and that feeling was very awkward. But this is normal and everyone starts somewhere, right? But I pulled myself together and kept going, regardless of what others thought of me.

When I first heard about CrossFit, I thought it was badass. I’ve always been an advocate of fitness and mental strength and because I’m always willing to learn something new, I gave it a try.

Experimenting With Cold Showers

Lately, I’ve been needing a major dominant fix in my life. I know what I need to do and the ideas are just swirling about in my head waiting to be manifested into the physical world. Thinking about them just gets me so excited and I know I need to take massive action towards them. However, I’ve just been so lethargic about it lately.

I’ve heard about how taking a cold shower can have an impact on your overall energy when you are feeling sluggish, due to shock. It’s an obvious reaction but I like it so I wanted to know more about it.
