Our expert says:
I'm really pleased to hear of your new committment to fitness. There are many exciting days for you in the future, but I want to urge you to go into this with a realistic outlook, and expect that some days will be quite tough. However, if you persevere, you will achieve success - but, think long term.
now, as for your actual training, I think that the best thing for you to do is to check out the following programmes on the health24 site - the first is the Shape up programme, where you can find programmes for walking, running, cycling and gym training - use this programme to design your cardiovascular training sessions.
For the actual weights sessions, have a look at the 'Zone in On' section of the Fitness page - here you will see a number of different exercises for different body parts, and this is where you can learn a bit about the machines. Practically, the best thing to do is to do the supercircuit at the gym, until you fee confident enough to try the free standing machines and the free weights.
Lastly, don't hesitate to ask one of the trainers for advice on the machines - better safe than sorry.
Good luck with the training
