I've been trying to work out more often... I hate going to the local gym... when I saw this article 5 Tips to Feel More Comfortable and Confident in the Gym I figured it would help me.
It dawned on me that I like going to the gym a little further away, because "everyone knows your name" and they push you to go the extra distance. I don't think it is needing to be more comfortable and/or confident in the gym, but rather knowing people who enjoy you and who you want to meet up with to work out.
Off to finish my coffee and head for the gym!
