How do I stop being nervous to go to the gym?


I want to work out but I'm a beginner and I feel intimidated/nervous.

Just realize that nobody cares.

Everyone is too focused on their own workout to notice you.

The only time I ever notice someone else at the gym is if they are doing something extremely dangerous or extremely impressive.

The other thing to remember is that you have as much right to equipment as the biggest/strongest guy there. You both pay the same membership fee, you both get to use the equipment. At worst they'll ask you how many set you have left, but that's it.
