      shit on the floor

      I'm not joking I'm getting really bad anxiety about this. I don't like public spaces especially ones that are packed full of people that mog me and I have no idea what I'm doing I don't know how to use any of the machinery I'm gonna look so stupid.

        I'll help the anxiety ridden millennial.
        Just hop on the elliptical. It's literally that easy. It's self explanatory and most machines even have directions. They are always near the treadmill.
        Also you have main character syndrome. Nobody is even looking at you unless you show up in jeans wearing a tacky shirt.
        Wear a plain shirt and workout shorts with running shoes and then put on headphones and either listen to music or watch a movie for one hour. That's it. It's your first time, do that until it's a bit of a routine and you're more comfortable then find other machines and workouts.

        if you haven't already, pick a program to follow. it doesn't really matter what it is though upper/lower and PPL are good. just pick a program, watch some YT videos on how to do all the exercises in them correctly.

        frankly, nobody cares about what you're doing and only dyels will judge you. but i understand the feeling - this will help you minimise that.

        Ride a bike for 15 minutes and hit a few machines and bail. People do all kinds of crazy shit in the gym all the time so nobody is going to look at you.

        Unless you’re the balding manlet who half repped an entire chest/tricep circuit today. Bro you didn’t bench 195 a single time just drop it to 150.

                Machines are perfect for beginners. I wouldn’t even bother touching a barbell until like month 6.

                I headed to the squat rack my first day in the gym. I even had to ask someone I thought was a trainer (he was another gym member) where the plates were. That said, I'm really glad for the machines in my gym. It keeps the people in year x of "month 6" away from racks.

        remember that it's okay to ask people there for help, most would be over the moon to help an open minded beginner learn to lift

        Ask the gym staff. Tell them you're a total beginner and ask if they would mind showing you how to use a few of the basic machines, and how to choose the right weight.

        Gym people are really not judgemental. In my experience people don't judge other people for lacking knowledge (if they're a beginner) or 'not lifting heavy enough'. If you show up regularly, take your training seriously (don't frick around on your phone and avoid showy meme exercises), and are respectful (follow basic gym etiquette, don't creep on girls) people will be be friendly and will be happy to help you if there's something you don't understand.

    Put some earphones in, listen to some fun music and enjoy yourself, bro. Too many people treat the gym like a job but if you learn to love it, you'll do great. Don't worry too much about a program if it's your first day, pick the lifts that you think look cool and fun and do those. I like to do bench and OHP and pretend I'm either a cavalryman whose horse has died and landed on top of me or pretend I'm a soldier in a river lifting the squads machine gun out of the water. All of the big four lifts are great for that kind of shit to be honest.

    If you're scared I recommend for the first few weeks just going and camping on the treadmill. Then slowly start adding new exercises. You have to be comfortable before you can fully succeed at the gym
