Having someone to hold your hand can be really motivating and ensure that on those days when you don’t necessarily fancy the gym you go as you don’t want to let the other person down!

#2 What to wear and what to take

When starting out in the gym you may not feel entirely confident in yourself, however, first things first with the gym – don’t worry about how you look! You’re there to sweat, not to impress. Wear gym kit that you feel comfortable in make sure it’s not too tight so that you have a good range of movement. Invest in a good quality pair of training and wear them in to avoid blisters. Of course, don’t forget to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout your workout.
