Help, I'm Afraid of the Treadmill

Help, I'm Afraid of the Treadmill

FitSugar reader ccath posted this question in our RunningSugar community group.

I'm planning on joining my college gym really soon. I've been doing lots of push-ups — sometimes I do 500 in a day, not exaggerating — but I still feel fat. I feel like my abs should be toned, but besides my arms I don't notice any difference. I feel fatter.

Anyway, as I was saying I'm going to join the gym, and I'm planning on running on the treadmill, but I'm afraid of it. I know it sounds stupid but I'm afraid I might fall and make a complete fool of myself in front of everyone. I'm worried that what happens in this video will happen to me.

Can you offer me any tips?
