FI and I joined a gym yesterday!!! We have a going away party to go to tonight, but are going to start going tomorrow.
They have alot of equipment, and it wasn't very crowded, so I'm excited about that. They offer personal training (but it costs $), but the woman I spoke with said that there is also always somewhere there to help if we have questions on how to use the equipment properly.
Also, the classes (spin, zumba, boot camp, etc) are all free, and she said if I'm worried about my ability in the beginning not to worry because they are for all levels and to just go in the back so I won't feel self conscious
