10 Struggles Every Anxious Person Has at the Gym

Posted -

The gym is a rough place. It's full of obnoxious meatheads, the music is always bad, and everyone seems like they're judging you. The gym is even worse when you're a naturally anxious person. I'm here to tell all of you anxiety-riddled people that you're not alone in hating the gym. I totally relate. Here, I've come up with a list of ten struggles anxious people face at the gym:

1. You have to go super early to avoid crowds

2. It's really hard to wake up so early

5. Whenever you mess up you just want to pack up and leave

6. You're too self-conscious to exercise next to someone that's really fit

7. You don't want to explore the whole gym because you're too afraid that people will judge you

8. You need to listen to music to feel more comfortable
