Tons of Americans made a resolution to exercise more this year. And while that sounds good in theory, sometimes the reality can be a little bit scarier than we thought... especially when it comes to going to the gym. And is there anything more intimidating than walking into a fitness class where everyone else knows what they're doing? Take a deep breath: You got this. 

And remember, everybody had a first time.

1. There's a line to get in this class? This isn't Disneyland! What kind of person waits in line to exercise?
