Too shy to go...

There is an aqua-fit class at my local sports centre tonight and I get in free because of my gym membership but I am sooo shy at going. I'm just afraid everyone there will be with a friend and I will be all on my own. I'm not really afraid of being in my swimming costume, because I realise ppl are all there because they want to lose weight, its just the having no one there I know issue.

but you might make some friends while you're there!

oh go, it'll be fine! i bet there will be loads of people who don't know anyone!

i was SOOOOOO scared of going to the gym by myself when i first started... but it was fine!

and as lilaclotus says, you may make some friends there!

The only reason you don't know them is because you haven't met them yet! Go on, give it a go!
