    Just feels like i'm peeking in through the window into the world of Fitness but i can't find the door :hsd:

    Do you just show up at the gym one day and just kinda stand around :hsugh:...with no idea on what perfect form is and all that.

    I mean...where/how do you learn to do the actual exercises etc :dunno:, i've been reading up on nutrition and diet for months but the actual training i have no idea.

    most gyms will give you a free physical trainer once with a membership. They will set you up with a plan to meet your goals and show you how all the machines are used correctly

    I just read till I could not read anymore. Made friends with people there who showed me things and helped me work out. Stuck with the machines for a couple of months and slowly started incorporating db and free weights in. Now I am pretty much strictly db or free weights.

    You have to start somewhere and the best way is just get in there and try.
