I'm a young guy and I'm very skinny. I've thought about going to the gym, but I can never seem to get over the fear of being the smallest person, having people give me looks for being super skinny and talking about it. What could I do about this? What has helped you in the past?

Question Who motivated you to get into lifting?

What motivated you to get into lifting? For me, it was probably my gym teacher in HS, but beyond that, there's been tons of other influences on me. Who got you to get into lifting?
