Fitness can be intimidating, but you shouldn’t let Instagram fitness models and endless weight loss ads keep you from breaking a sweat. Instead, focus on finding a workout you actually enjoy and feel confident doing.
Take it from Felicia Cottrill, a FabFitFun member who recently found and cultivated her love for yoga through FabFitFunTV. She knows it can be intimidating to push yourself out of your comfort zone, but it’s essential for self-growth — so we asked her to share her best tips on how to find a workout that works for you.

Fitness isn’t one-size-fits-all, so try various workouts until you find a routine you enjoy. Cottrill sifted through all kinds of videos on FabFitFunTV including yoga, boxing, and dance cardio. “FabFitFunTV has helped me gain confidence by allowing me to try new things in the comfort of my own home,” she says. The best part about FabFitFunTV is that you can do the workouts anywhere – on vacation, in your living room, or even at the office on your lunch break. We suggest checking out the yoga videos while using the Anthropologie Travel Yoga Mat, which is super thin and foldable, so you can pack it in your gym bag or suitcase.
Go at your own pace
For every new fitness class or training program, always remember to be kind to yourself — mentally, emotionally, and physically. Cottrill’s best piece of advice? “Go at your own pace and listen to your body,” she says. “You are the only person who knows what you can handle and your body will never steer you wrong!”
Give yourself credit
The best things in life, including every fitness journey, happen when you step out of your comfort zone. “I always remind myself that some of my favorite workouts now are things I never would’ve tried if I stayed in my comfort zone,” says Cottrill. “Everyone has to start somewhere, and I hate to sound super cheesy, but if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.” Once you gain the courage to try something new, make sure to reward yourself along the way. You deserve it!
