Welcome to Gaia! ::

virgin jitters, that brings back memories.
no need for supplements or any expensive way of motivation (maybe something to listen to because gym music sucks)

just walk in there thinking "this is not a place to impress or show off how much i can lift its a place to get 6-12 reps in each set and get some GAINS" and dont worry about asking for help either, it might make someones day to help someone out with their gains

this strategy worked for me when approaching my first gym experience

one more thing: walk into a gym with one goal and that goal is to walk out on your own 2 feet (dont hurt yourself)
No one at the gym cares about your existence if you show up. They only care if they're getting the most out of their workouts.

The gym is a great place!
There are so many people to help you.
All those mean people with their game face on are soft and fuzzy on the inside.
Not many people judge and are very open to questions/spotting/help in general.

Just get your butt out and go. Force yourself just to get there for a few days and then you'll be raring to go.
Motivation is for the weak. Discipline is what you need.

The gym isn't a social place. You shouldn't be caring that you're there with no friends. I've always gone alone, because I go to train my a** off, not heeding or paying attention to anything else.
