The January Joiners.
You know who Iâ€™m talking about.
The newbs at your gym that make it difficult for you to get on a machine or into a class.Â
The ones who have NO IDEA what theyâ€™re doing or are just kind of annoying.
Well, I love them.
As someone who runs social media and success stories for a fitness company, nothing warms my heart more than seeing someone new to fitness. Someone whoâ€™s had enough and wants to change their life for the better.Â
Heather has some awesome posts up about how to survive what she calls the â€œGympocalypseâ€ â€” some gym etiquette newbies might not know and how to avoid beginner mistakes.
More and more, friends have been asking me for fitness tips lately â€” what gym to join, what classes to take, etc., and it makes me so happy. I just want to hug everyone, but maybe thatâ€™s just the endorphins speaking.
Fitness has really changed my life, and I want that for everyone else, too. So, be nice to your January Joiners, even if they are a little clueless! Though statistics show they probably wonâ€™t stick around much longer, letâ€™s hope that this year isÂ different for them.
What about you? Were you a January Joiner? Or is your gym packed and youâ€™re mad?
