Let’s Get it Started!: Beginning an exercise routine can be the hardest part, so it’s important to remember the benefits that you’ll reap from becoming fit.
Any time that you’ve set foot in a gym or a class with a trainer or instructor, you’ve probably had that terrible thought in the back of your head: “I just can’t do this.” If you haven’t and you’ve managed to slay that mental dragon, congratulations, you’re in the one percent. For so many other people, gathering the confidence to spend even 10 minutes in a room full of other people fighting their own fitness demons is considerably harder than completing 10 pushups.
