I'm sorry if this has been asked before -- I've never really stuck with an exercise program, and this week I joined a local gym with almost everything one would need. The first day my friend and I spent about an hour between the treadmill and elliptical machines, and then day 2 I went by myself and took advantage of their "one free session with a personal trainer" thing. It was very difficult but I could see the advantage to it. I felt good all day, and naturally I woke up this morning and could barely move my legs.
For someone starting out, how often should I go to the gym? I've read that once you do a lot of the weight/resistance training you should give it a day or so to heal the muscles before doing that again, but I'd be tempted to even go for the treadmills after that, but I don't want to completely burn myself out. Any advice? Thanks ^^
