Strategies To Conquer Your Fitness Anxiety
« on: June 05, 2019, 06:45:03 AM »

Paying for a gym pass you donít use? Running shoes gathering dust? Do you have a fear of fitness? Donít worry- you are not alone!

Fear is one of the biggest reasons people give up on exercise, according to a growing number of sports-psychology and fitness authorities. Here are some simple strategies straight from the professionals aimed at helping you get over your fear and get on with your workout.

Rethink your definition of exercise. Think of it as movement - you donít have to do it in a gym. Gardening, walking the dog, or playing tag with your kids is exercise.

Be environmentally conscious. Find a fitness experiences that makes you feel nurtured and accepted. Walk or jog in your neighborhood or on a trail Ė donít try to keep up with fitness fanatics in the gym.

Test the waters. If you're interested in trying a new workout, borrow a video from a friend or the library, and try it at home first (before entering into a group situation.)

Get one-on-one help. Almost all clubs now offer personal training to help you overcome your fear of incompetence, and often the first session is free.

Know your triggers. If you like the anonymity of a fitness class, stay toward the back. Start with an activity like yoga that you can do on your own to lesson anxiety.

Call out the cavalry. If you're the social type, try activities in a supportive group to distract you from your fears and make the effort less intimidating.

Focus on the positive. Think of the many things exercise can do for you: the goal is to workout to be optimistic, more energetic, and less stressed.

Finding a comfort zone might be challenging in health club situations, so it is time to reevaluate the way you workout and conquer your fears. If your past attempts at fitness have left you running scared, focus on moving in these ways and your outlook may change.
