Feeling insecure is normal when someone's not used to being in the fitness environment. Even though you feel intimated by the gym, the truth is that no cares about how you look or about what type of shape you're in. If you're at the gym and you're a good, quality human being who's putting an effort in, I have great respect for you. - Don Saladino
Do you believe that the only way to lose weight, get healthy, and stay fit for life is to have a no pain, no gain mentality?

"Getting fit isn't as hard as you think; you just took an incorrect approach because someone probably steered you in the wrong direction." - @DonSaladino on @WellnessForce Radio episode 225 http://bit.ly/wfpodcast
"You don't have to be a gym killing yourself in the gym. You don't have to have this Biggest Loser approach to fitness or be vomiting after each workout. Being healthy is just about making better choices, moving in an intelligent way, and if people took that approach, they'd be able to reach their health and fitness goals a lot quicker and easier than they ever imagined. As I'm getting older, I'm finding that I may even need less and just do two-three movements each day. It's shocking how a little can go a long way." - Don Saladino
"People find going to the gym very intimidating. When someone's not used to being in the fitness environment, they immediately feel insecure but the truth is, no one cares how you look. I don't care what type of shape you're in or what you look like. If you're at the gym and you're a good, quality human being who's putting an effort in, I have great respect for you. If you still feel insecure about the gym, just go in there for 10 minutes and do something really simple like a 3-movement circuit or run around the track to build confidence." - Don Saladino
"Training a celebrity really isn't any different; they have families, work, and time constraints too. The only difference is that sometimes we have a definitive goal that has to be reached in 3 months. What people need is consistency. Some days you can go in there with just a 40-60% effort and it's all good because it's better than not doing anything for weeks. Plus that day off from the gym might be exactly what you need sometimes." - Don Saladino
