New Gym..New workout

I changed my gym. New gym, new people it was both exciting and scary. A week before I started at my new gym I was scared, I doubted my decision to change gyms because in my old gym I knew people, I had gone for most of the classes and overtime it had become my comfort zone. So as the day to start going to the new gym came closer I started getting a little anxious.

When the day finally came I went to the gym and that’s when I realized how much I have changed in the past year. I was comfortable even in the new environment, there were lot of new machines and I was confident enough to read and try them or ask one of the floor instructors how to use them.
That got me thinking what changed? In the past year my weight has not really changed much, I am in maintenance mode so that can’t be the reason...the one thing that has changed is my Attitude (I have a long way to go still but I have also come a long way)
This time when I entered the gym I entered with an attitude to improve, to learn new stuff. I did not think a lot about other people in the gym or about making a fool of myself. I went there with one intention ‘To improve’ and the more I focused on that the more I enjoyed myself.
I was OK with making mistakes, I was OK with being a new comer and I was OK with being a student to anyone who was better and I was OK with being judged. I literally told myself ‘Tanvee you planned to change the gym because you wanted to try new stuff, because you wanted to become better just keep that in mind’ and that’s exactly what I did and I am so glad I did this.

Things to keep in mind next time I am out of my comfort zone

  • Always keep focus on why I am doing it 
  • It’s ok to make mistakes – I am there to learn and improve 
  • Don’t compare!!! Don’t compare
  • Try new stuff (don’t say no just because I am scared of people judging or not being able to do it)
Hope you find this post useful :)
