This is huge for me. I've really actually enjoyed going and it hasn't been stressful or full of ***-hats at all.
just dont even let it cross your mind next time, it may make you nervous and thats when accidents happen - i wish I hadn't mentioned it now.
I learned that you can start it really really really slow and then gradually get faster, then gradually slow down again.
I use the treadmill just to warm up and get those 'relaxing endorphins' into my system so I'm not anxious using the strength equipment.
Why run on a boring-*** treadmill when you can run outside?
Glad to hear it. If when you do your research you have specific questions, I'd be willing to help.
So today when I went - my second time - watching the Youtube videos really helped. Really there's nothing much to it! I was also able to figure out a couple other machines at the gym.
Running on a treadmill first for 10 minutes or so allows me to watch people use the machines and releases those relaxing endorphins or whatever that just makes me feel less anxious when I go to the strength machines.
Someday the goal will be to progress to free weights, which is intimidating too, but for now using the machines and **** will have to work.
Another goal will be not to go at 10 or 11 at night but earlier in the evening. (Come home from work at 5, eat dinner, digest for a bit, then go at like 7 or 8 )
I feel like I'll have this goal down in a couple weeks because I'll have learned how to use a lot of the equipment by then.
Just out of curiosity what do you consider a perfect body?
Oh, you know, skinny with a perfect butt and perky boobs for a girl; a guy super-buff with low body fat.
