Yeah the gym is a good way to get used to falling. I've taken some whippers indoor, and got used to / comfortable with the feeling - however, I'm yet to take a fall on trad.
I've fallen on bolts, but never on trad gear. Not because I'm scared to, just cause I've never come off. Perhaps I'm not pushing myself enough or something.

I'm kind of looking forward to it, so long as it's in a position where I don't hit stuff on the way down :)
