If you feel uncomfortable in a crowded gym then pick times it isn’t busy in the morning or later in the evening. A weekend is an excellent time for less people.
If you don’t feel confident carrying around a gym program just take a pic of it on your phone so you don’t have to carry paper around with you.
Focus on the task at hand and don’t worry about those around you. They all had to start somewhere and everyone is supportive especially about someone wanting to improve themselves for the better. Visual having a great workout and it will happen.
If you don’t have a lot of time, ask your trainer for a 30 min routine.
If want to spend as little time as possible in the gym then do more compound movements targeting a lot of muscles at one time.
