I wanna go to the gym but I'm too shy


I've never been to a gym before and lately I've been wanting to try one.

The thing is whenever I see pretty girls who work out and wear makeup I always shrink in my seat cause they make me feel really insecure. I'm really shy around the guys too. I'm scared to be the awkward newbie amongst these people.

I've been a dancer for 8 years. I'm not too bad appearance-wise and I'm used to being watched but there's something about this whole thing that makes me really anxious because I'm so awkward and I feel like I wouldn't be up to the right level in that environment.

Should I do it? Also I don't know if I should throw it out the window and try the nice gym in my town or take it down a notch for a first time. I really need some advice 😪
