Other people will be watching

Part of the reason I had such a difficult time when I first started training wasn’t just the fact that my trainer was watching my every struggly move, I felt like everyone else in the gym was watching me pant and drip with sweat too. I started telling myself “those people aren’t paying you any attention,” to psyche myself up to just do me without worrying about an audience, then suddenly every time I stepped in the gym someone was asking me “how’s training going?” “You work out with so and so, how is he?” “I see you working out, you’re looking good.” Okay, I don’t really mind the compliments, but the fact of the matter is most people want personal trainers they just don’t want to pay for them, which is why they will stare your session down as they contemplate whether they should pinch a few pennies here and there so they can get like you.
