Gbob saidI would start going to the gym if I had a boyfriend or a gay buddy to go with...I just have this impression that it's an intimidating atmosphere so that's why I've never dared to even step inside one.
But definitely need to improve on the fitness...haven't done any exercise for like 3 years which is awful!
I hate this! Because i went through the same thing! It is very intimidating! I still get intimidated when i see super huge bulky guys at the gym.
What you have to do is just close your mind off to them and the atmosphere and you should be fine.
If you were here in seattle i'd definately go to the gym with you. It's tons of fun! I just do what my trainer shows me and it works for me. He doesn't have me do silly things he's just trying to help bulk me up and get bigger. So far he's managed to tone me up and i feel like im getting bigger but i like the result so far
