EP. 18 Fitting Into Fitness - Are You Super Extra or Super I'm-Outta-Here? (Melissa) / Sweat Friends

Posted on


Do you ever feel as though you do NOT “fit in” to fitness? Maybe you are trying out a new spin class or visiting a new gym, how do you handle it? Do you feel out of place? Does it keep you from wanting to even try?



We have been there! My sweat friend Melissa Werkman joins me today and talks about how she has handled awkward fitness moments (including a fun story about Crisco). As an information gatherer, Melissa says she feels better when she observes first and gathers information. What about you? How do YOU fit into fitness?

Topics Covered:

  • A story about Melissa’s first spin class when she got called out by the instructor.
  • How everyone feels out of place in fitness.
  • The pressure to look cool or know what you are doing in the gym.

Quotes from the show:
