YOU SAY ‘I’M FEEL­ING TOO EM­BAR­RASSED’

Essentials - - Shape Up -

WE SAY Join the club! Whether you’re feel­ing self-con­scious about your weight or your abil­ity, you’re not alone. Fear­ing what oth­ers think is enough to put 75% of women off ex­er­cis­ing, so while you might be cring­ing in­side when try­ing a new work­out, just re­mem­ber that every­one else will be too wrapped up in their own in­se­cu­ri­ties to be look­ing at you. If you’re still too daunted for the gym or a class, try build­ing up your fit­ness lev­els with a solo ex­er­cise regime be­fore you join a group ac­tiv­ity. Do­ing an ex­er­cise DVD in your liv­ing room a few times a week or in­cor­po­rat­ing a 30-minute walk into your daily rou­tine can make all the dif­fer­ence.
