Whether it's a resolution or you're looking to get healthier, your first time with a Gym membership can definitely be daunting. Will you figure out the machines? Do you have the right clothes? Will people be staring at you? You're not the only one who has asked these questions.

It might have even been a few weeks but don't give up just yet! Here are the 5 easy things you can do to start feeling more confident at the gym.

Wear comfortable gym gear

Before you even get to the gym, you can make sure that you're wearing something that makes you feel good.

This doesn't mean you have to dish out hundreds on name brand clothing. If you feel great in that tank top you've had for years and the pair of shorts you lounge around in, go for it!

However, if you did want to grab yourself some Nike or Gymshark, it could definitely be a motivator and a confidence booster. Just remember, the gym doesn't have a dress code so just do whatever works for you.

Find the exercise that works for you

Finding the workouts that you enjoy can be huge in getting over your fears. If you're doing something just because you think you're meant to, you won't enjoy it and you won't give it your all.

You might have to experiment a lot but there are a tonne of things you can do a the gym.

Most gyms will have classes for things like yoga, Zumba, and cycling. You can also do weightlifting, use the cardio machines or just grab a mat and take to the corner to do HIIT workouts.

Black Lively's trainer Don Saladino even told Health.com that he recommends going back to "old school farm boy stuff." Things like jumping, skipping and crawling can all get your heart rate up and your calories burning.

Find a gym buddy

If you don't have a gym buddy, it's time to get a friend to workout with you! It's almost guaranteed that this will make going to the gym easier. If you're in the experimentation phase, this will be especially helpful since trying a bunch of new things is better with some moral support.

An important thing to consider is that you want a gym buddy that's reliable - someone who constantly finds an excuse not to go will only demotivate you as well.

Focus on your own workout

Focusing on your workout is important for two reasons. The first is that it can help you realize how little you're judging others on what they're doing. What does this mean? No one else is judging you either!

But maybe, more importantly, it's important to focus on your own appearance and progress over anyone else's. Wonder Woman's (Gal Gadot's) very own trainer Mark Twight has told Vanity Fair, "But the real difficulty is to change habits and to confront the expectations regarding exercise intensity and body image.” Things don't change overnight, be patient!

Reward yourself

The final tip is to reward yourself. The best way to do this is to set goals and to reward yourself accordingly.

For instance, if you've gone to the gym 3 days in a week, treat yourself with a trip to the cinemas or one of your favorite restaurants. Maybe after a month, you can get yourself new workout gear!

And that's it! If you haven't given these things a shot, they're worth the chance. It's not too late to turn around any fitness resolutions that haven't gone to plan. Remember, willpower is a muscle too! Best of luck with your gym membership in 2018.
