1. Can be quite daunting If you're of shy disposition and intimidating...Walking thru that door!!...Best to remember it's the SAME for everybody. Give you a tip what I used to do and still do.......whether it was trying to get Women or in situations socially and at work. I'd decide I'm going to do this... bang the door open or tap a girls shoulder before I had time to think of any negative consequences!!.....

Then you can't back out and you come across as a confident guy and start off with the right image.......Take that first step!!

2. Decide what it is you're after...Fitness goals....Physique, Powerlifting goals....

3. Form - Is most important...... so many workouts are wasted because you aren't doing the exercise right. Leading to...

4. Ask for advice when necessary.......Not a bodybuilder around who hasn't had to start from the beginning......99% are guys ready to impart their knowledge...The other 1% are not worth knowing..

5. Nothing good comes easy.......Lot's of little targets adds up to a lot over time......

6. Heavy weight........Don't be intimidated by guys chucking heavy weights around....at least 50% are doing the exercise wrong....Keep your training personal to you and don't worry what anybody else is doing.

7. Eat properly and get enough sleep......Get everything right!!.If you are going to hurt yourself at the gym why compromise results.

8. Respect everyone and they'll respect you....

9. Enjoy the ride.............

10. Listen to your body...If your body is telling you it's tired listen to it...if it's telling you it finds a certain exercise awkward don't do it....I don't Bench press for that reason..

Number 9 is so important.

The amount of times that some young lads join the gym and for the first few weeks walk around like the own the place is astonishing. It's almost like the feel they have to put on a show and act big and tough, to fit in. It's not like that, and you end up looking like a complete tool.

Can I add one Truss?

Number 11. There's no place for phones in the gym. Texting is not a workout!

on no. 4, asking for advice, this can be a potential minefield. how do you know the person giving it knows what they're on about? i would be sceptical with advice from anyone to be honest.

if you are in the shower after your workout and have shampoo running down into your eyes, never EVER reach out blindly for the soap/ shower gel.

13 Dont even try have a conversation with a naked man. If the guy is naked, chances are he isnt really in "discussion" mode...

Mate, Im of the darker skin variety, Its almost remarkable how often some stereotypical joke pops up.
(Funny enough, they go both ways, sometimes its 'I guess its true, huh? others are like 'Its not THAT big'.) I just wanna change dammit!!
