Why would other people keep you from the gym? Is it the thought that a bunch of muscle heads doing curls in the squat rack and snorting creatine off their abs will look at you with a smirk? They won't care what you do buddy.

There are some people who get what I'm saying. If you're not one of those people I don't think it's possible to explain. Just understand that the thought of a gym creeps me out. I'm glad you're not afflicted.

It's really a confidence thing, not so much watching big dudes intimidate you. Trust me, I was scared of the gym at first too, I'm a skinny dude trying to build my muscles back, and the thought of me lifting small weights while brolic dudes lifted 3x more weight terrified me. But if you keep going, you eventually lose your fear of gyms, I now try to go at least 5 times a week, and I'm comfortable. Everyone else minds their own business. Everyone has to start somewhere.

Thanks, 48, but that's not it. I've been invited to go with friends who aren't in better shape than me at times when I know we'd be the only ones around. The idea of working out with other people just sounds totally awful to me. And it had nothing to do with body image. As I said, I work out at home and have no problem showing off my body at the pool. That's not the issue.

I don't think it can be explained.

This is exactly what I thought while reading this FML. If you saw them coming your way, even if you couldn't get away, at least close your mouth and turn your head away for a second. It's not that bad if they fall on your cheek where you can wipe them off together with your own sweat afterwards.
