Focus on you

It might be nerve wrecking just thinking about everyone, so just focus on cutting out the noise and focus on yourself and why you are there. Pump up the volume to your playlist and get to it – don’t mind the next person.

Get killer outfits

If you’re prepared and wear outfits that you love and look good in, you’ll feel better and more confident.

Get a gym buddy

When you have friend to workout with, she can push you. You won’t make excuses and skip days when you have someone calling and asking where you are. Also, when you’re there you won’t feel as uncomfortable if there is a friendly face around.

Focus on the bigger picture

You’ve got the cute outfit, great playlist and amazing friend but if you’re not driven about why you are going to gym at the first place those things won’t work. So focus on the bigger picture – why are you exercising? Is it to be healthy, lose weight, feel good, fit into a wedding dress or bikini this September? Whatever the reason, focus on it.
