How Do You Handle "Gymtimidation"



How do you han­dle “gym­tim­i­da­tion?” A new sur­vey by Cosmopoli­tan Body finds that women are twice as likely as men to find the gym intim­i­dat­ing. Four­teen per­cent of women say they worry that male gym­go­ers will judge them, while 10 per­cent fear their female coun­ter­parts. A whop­ping 47 per­cent of women also admit to avoid­ing the weights area because it makes them feel unfit in front of oth­ers and there­fore, uncom­fort­able. Mean­while, men say they are most con­cerned about appear­ing to not know what they’re doing in front of their fel­low gymgoers.
