People who go to the gym, what's it like going to the gym? Do you just go there with your head down and train or are there heaps of judgmental people? I want to join the gym but I'm really self conscious and I have this warped look of the gym being filled with people starring at you.

Nobody cares or looks/stares, they are focused on their own workout. Now, you might get some looks from guys, but they will be brief for the most part and all that will mean is they think you're attractive. I've never run into judgmental people at the gym and if they're there, they aren't going to say anything to your face. Don't overthink it. If/when you go, pretend you're all alone and nobody is there. Most people act that way at the gym. You might get a friendly "hello" but nobody is judging you or your body. They are focused on themselves and their own workout, not you. They could care less about you lol1

i've been going to gym alone since day one, i've never felt self conscious because i have no shame lol, i don't care what others do, and others don't care what i do nor does anyone talks to each other at gym besides asking if someone is done with something they want to use. everyone is more focused on their own workouts or their phones. there are some people that will look/stare at me and purposely work out near me but as long as you don't care, give them any eye contact while just doing what you need to do like they don't exist then they'll eventually stop and be on their own way. i don't keep my head down unless the workout needs me to like cable crunches1
