If you are like myself and feel too shy to exercise alone in the gym, I have a trick to teach you. Get a good headphone and plug in your ipod and bring it along with you when you are exercising. I found a really good one On Sale here and when I have my music and headphones with me I don’t feel self conscious no more. I just pretend I’m too busy enjoying my music to care about the people around me. So for those of you who are shy, no more excuses folks, for not going to the gym, a headphone and an ipod is all you need to get some confidence back.
