With college right around the corner, a new class of freshmen students will be entering into unfamiliar territory with all too familiar insecurities.
Let's face it. Doing well in school doesn't just mean getting good grades anymore, it means having a good social life too! For some, getting physically fit is a way to fit in with their peers.
FitPerez reader and college freshman, Dana, wrote to celebrity personal trainer Jennifer Cohen for advice with these insecurities in mind and asked:
I'm going to college for the first time next week and I'm worried I'm not going to be as hot as all the other girls, AND I'm worried about classes. I want to do well, be happy AND like the way I look - What can I do??
According to Jennifer:
Those other girls are thinking the EXACT same thing you are! Everyone has insecurities, and the best thing we can do for ourselves is to recognize them and not let them get us down.
