Weight Training Intimidation

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

I would really like to use the weight machines at the gym but I feel kind of stupid about it. I'm nervous to ask for help to be shown how to use them. I feel so silly for feeling like this in the first place. I'm going to try and ask for help by the end of the week and see how it goes.

    spark has a great overview of how to use some of the gym machines under the healthy lifestyle/fitness tab up top. also lots of machines have instructions on them in a place you can read once you sit down/stand in place at the machine. i agree tho, the people at the gym are there to help, and you are paying good money, consider it like a personal training session, and if you know how to do the machines properly you can also show other people if you ever see someone else new and struggling ;) keep sparking your life, you are doing a great job!

    GO ASK FOR HELP! :D That's what they are there for. I'm sure they prefer showing someone than seeing someone using things wrong. Or you could also try looking up videos/demos of the machines online?
