I think that when you're starting weight training especially it's important to have someone help you, not just to show you a routine, but to show you how to do the exercises right. Good form is important so you don't injure yourself!
Lots of gyms have trainers who can, at the very least, do something for you. If you have the $$, it might be nice to find one you can work with, at least for a while. I consider the money I've spent on training to be very well spent!
