It’s more than six weeks after many people made healthy resolutions, and hopefully, new gym-goers are still going strong.
According to an article on Examiner.com, only 8 percent of New Year’s resolutions are successful. Of the 47 percent of Americans who usually make resolutions, 47 percent resolve to improve themselves, and 38 percent aim to lose weight.
Great goals, but let’s boost that success rating.
Many people who are just starting out on a fitness journey often feel uncomfortable or self-conscious at gyms. Sometimes, those negative feelings prevent people from joining or from making it a long-term habit.

Maybe you’re worried that you stick out like a sore thumb. However, the more you expose yourself to the environment, the more comfortable you’ll become.
And, we’ve got something to help you fit in. A recent story published in Smart magazine provides readers with gym etiquette.
If you need some pointers about how to make the most of your workout, talk to a personal trainer at your gym or research workout schedules online. Many gyms offer evaluations and a session or two with a trainer.
In no time, you’ll look like a pro.
