This is called the “spotlight effect,” and it’s when you feel like everyone else is looking at your face, but they are actually asking the exact same thing. Focus on your own self, and you will soon realize that everyone else is just as interested in you, not you!
  • Everybody at the gym started somewhere. You are not the only one who started out as a beginner. They would have been in the exact same place as you, just like most people.

What equipment and exercises are best for women beginning to exercise?

Start slow if you have never lifted weights or exercised any type of physical activity. It is a great idea to get on the treadmill. Begin by walking slowly for about 10-15 minutes. This will introduce you to cardio. This will make it easier to get comfortable at the gym.

Ask someone, or a qualified professional, such as a personal coach, if you are unfamiliar with the treadmill. It is essential to learn how to properly use any equipment in the gym, such as the weight machines and any cardio equipment, so you don’t get hurt.

You don’t want to do cardio if it is tiring or you lack the confidence. Instead, get in the gym and stretch. It’s now about becoming familiar with the surroundings and feeling relaxed.


You want to avoid too much pressure as a beginner. Start with what you are comfortable with. You can go at your own pace. Start with 30 minutes. You’ll find that you will be able to incorporate weight training into your workout routine once you have started doing it regularly. This will make a big difference in how much you exercise and how often you do it. Your fitness goals will also influence your workouts, whether you are trying to lose weight or gain muscle.


There are many reasons why people go to the gym. It is important to remember that consistency is key. To keep up your fitness goals, it is important to have a consistent workout routine. You can choose a time that works for you, whether it’s in the morning before or after work. It is crucial to make time to go to the gym if you are a busy person.

We’ve compiled a list of easy gym workouts for beginners to make it easier. If you feel you need more clarification, you can always seek the guidance of one of our Crunch staff members or personal trainers, who will help you get on your way.

Cardio exercises for beginners

  • There are many options for you to try: elliptical machines; stationary bikes; stair climbers; rowers. You can use each of these machines in a low-intensity mode to get used to them.
  • Start with 15 minutes of cardio, and when you feel comfortable, increase the time and intensity.
  • Women over 40 years old may experience a decrease in bone density due to hormonal changes. Cardio exercise can be a great way to increase bone growth, especially if you’re walking.

Strength training for beginners

  • A complete body workout can include shoulder presses, back presses, leg curls, crunches, and leg presses. These are the basic exercises to start with. If you have any questions, talk to a personal trainer.
  • Female beginners should perform 2-3 sets of 8-10 repetitions. Start with lighter weights to build up to heavier weights.
  • Women naturally have lower levels of muscle-building hormones than men, so weight training is great because it increases muscle mass, speeds up metabolism, and improves bone density.

Stretching is a great way to end a workout. Your muscles can get tighter if you work at a computer all day. It is a good idea to do stretches after a workout, as your muscles will have already warmed up.
