    Is there any type of limit, or 'supervision' required for those under 18. This summer i want to start working out. Still in :highschool: though.

    I would imagine 18 for insurance reasons, unless you are with an adult.

    At my world gym you just have to have a waiver signed by your parents if you're a minor.

    At my gym technically you have to be 17+ to go into the free weight room. I was 16 last year but they didn't have a problem with it.
