I have a few friends who've expressed that they'd rather not go to a gym or recreation center to exercise because they're embarrassed.
They're overweight... and they don't want other people watching them.
Although I'm not overweight, I can understand the hesitation.
When I first started lifting weights... and grabbed the 20-pound dumbbells to do bicep curls... I was embarrassed.
Here were all these ripped guys curling 40- and 50-pounders!
I felt like a weakling.
Here's the thing. No matter where you start, there's going to be someone firmer, slimmer, sexier, stronger.
There's just no way you're going to avoid that.
My advice: get over your embarrassment and start exercising.
Your emotions will diminish... your gym will start to feel like home... and you'll start making visible improvements.
And that's the real goal anyway: results. Not a warm fuzzy feeling inside. You can get that when you take a hot shower after your workout. :-)
