This year, like many other years before, you made yourself a promise. This year is the year I go to the gym and feel good about myself. And what’s not to love about those ambitions?! After all, when a woman feels confident about herself, she’s unstoppable. She can achieve anything she puts her mind to.

So why do you feel insecure in the gym?

You are not alone. We’ve been there ourselves - from excitement at starting the new workout phase to total imposter syndrome and insecurity.

As if women didn’t contend with enough already, the constant hormones raging through our bodies - in our teens, as new mums, during menopause and even over 60’s - can really have an impact on our confidence and how we feel about our bodies.

Research by The Gym Group found over a third of women feel out of place in the gym.

What’s worse is they found over half (53%) are put off from signing up due to ‘Gymtimidation’ - the fear of encountering the ‘tight yoga pants and skimpy outfits’...

But it’s time for women to take back control. The dreams of getting fit and healthy are within reach, you just have to believe in yourself to take the first step. But that’s not to say there aren’t some tips to help you along the way…

3 Exercises in the gym while wearing the FIJJIT Freedom All-In-One

How can you feel more confident in the gym?

1) Find workout clothes that work for you

Ever heard the saying, ‘I feel like a million dollars’? Well, we believe that the most important way to feel more confident is to feel good in your clothes. If you feel comfortable, feel supported, and feel like your body is being flattered by the clothes you are wearing, you’re off to a flying start.

Because it’s time to stop feeling self-conscious in ill-fitting gym wear.

Your workout experience shouldn’t be made more painful by tight-fitting clothes that ride up in all the wrong places, or show off your midriff without permission…

FIJJIT Active understands the only pain in the gym should be finishing the reps and sets you’ve got on your plan, rather than fidgeting in your workout apparel.

Designed by women for women, the Freedom by FIJJIT Active is a unique All-In-One workout garment created with you in mind.

It combines a sweat-wicking mesh halter neck top with legging bottoms for the ultimate breathability and comfort. The four-way stretch fabric and an extra high waist (just under the bust) provides a secure fit whilst also offering support to the midsection, creating a more defined and flattering silhouette.

It can be a headache to balance comfort with what looks good, but remember that the most important thing when it comes to gym wear is choosing something that makes you feel comfortable and confident.

2) Don’t compare yourself with others

It’s hard to believe that everyone had their very own day one in the gym. Especially when they look that good!

But it’s true, they had to start somewhere, just like you. So gently remind yourself that they may have years of experience behind them. The only person you can compare yourself to is yourself - the before you that didn’t go to the gym, versus yourself now, crushing it in the gym.

3) Have a plan in hand

The last thing you need to do as a busy woman is to spend hours wasting time in the gym.

Go to the gym with a plan in hand and forget about aimlessly wandering around. With a plan, you can forget about doubting if you should even be in the gym and questioning if you are up for the challenge. Instead, you just do it.

Having a purpose can boost your confidence and make you feel more at home in the gym.
