Gymtimidation: what is it?

It’s completely normal to suffer from gymtimidation; the feeling of being anxious in a gym. Our recent survey found that 49% of people have felt nervous or anxious within a gym environment so you’re certainly not alone.

Everyone is on their own health journey and whether you aren’t sure how to use the equipment or just feel like you won’t fit in, we’re here to help lift your confidence and make healthy happen.

There are many reasons why people may feel anxious within a gym, watch our video below and see if any of this sounds familiar to you:
