    swimming is grrrreat excercise. i swam competitively for almost 10 years, and it's the best workout ever. if you're looking for cardio, weight loss, muscle toning, etc. i highly recommend it.

    Fuck a gym....for several reasons

    1. You enter into a contract that is just like having a cell phone except you don't bench press your phone. You get fucked if you try to end your membership early dude.

    2. Think off all the sweaty, unwashed, nasty skin condition havin' folks that have greased up those machines nice and good for you prior to your use of them. Do you think dude washed his hands after jerking off in the washroom and then lifting those dumbells you are now holding? Didn't think so.

    3. Gyms are like clubs....people go there to show off their bodies, pick up on other members of the opposite sex (or same sex if you're three dollar style.) and make other feel insecure about themselves. FUck, i don't need those politics.

    WHat you should have done was invested in a nice set of weights, a curling bar and a weight bench andset that shit up in your room. Next would have come you going on the internet, selecting excercises to target the areas of your body you want to improve on and then apply your newly aqquired weights accordingly all the while saving yourself from exzema, semen stained starimasters, jock assholes and ridiculously high monthly gym fees.

    join a gym for a month and see if you like it, don't lay out a ton of cash for a year or more only to find that you dislike the environment. go at different times too, to see what works.

    don't ever join one of those gyms that has a crazy contract and life time memberships and all of that jazz.

    $325-400 is a decent range for a 1 YEAR membership.

    DO NOT join a gym that isn't open yet but is having a promotional special.

    do practice good gym etiquette, bring a clean towel to wipe down your shit when you are done. wear clean clothes, and use some de-odorent.

    ignore the meat market aspects of the gym and just do your thing, bring some sort of personal audio device to help to avoid random time consuming convo from the "locals" (unless it is a hot female/male whatever your preference is)

    put all your weights back when you are done

    never fear asking for a spot, it's better than getting hurt. (i have a funny story about that)

    don't be like me and join, then not go!

    i hope that helps! and good luck!

    whatever you do do NOT join Bally's!!! they suck soooooooooooooooo much, i hate them with a passion!!! you will never be able to quit and none of the so called trainers are helpful or know jack shit about anything. the group workout is always packed and it's a big meat market. i'm trying to get out of my contract so i can join 24hr fitness.
    i do enjoy working out though, makes me feel energized and clean. when i used to go running outdoor, that was the most fun.
    good luck.

    Well with being jobless, brainless, and straight up addicted to 12 oz I kind of figured you had to have had a little time on your hands to "think about joining a gym"! But then you probably figured that there is no reason to get in shape since you never leave the house!

    True, I hear that some gyms are full of jacked dudes and those type of women you see on Fear Factor (nice body, ugly brain/face), but not mine. It’s a nice, small one.

    Entering a year contract or whatever might make you want to maximize it by going often, as I do.

    Very rarely do I see people trying to pick others up, but small talk does take place from time to time. There is nothing wrong with meeting new people.

    the_gooch is right, you should join first for a month to see how you like it, and definitely go at different times.

    Just because someone is bigger than you doesn’t mean that they laugh at you when you’re pressing 200lbs less than them. It’s all good up in there because everyone feels good from exercising, plus you never know – you may be out lifting them in a couple of years!

    Most people I know who have a home gym have a terrible time motivating themselves to use it. Plus if you go to a gym, you can isolate different muscles with different machines, and it’s a hell of a lot easier to get someone to spot you, show you new exercises, etc.

    In conclusion, I’d recommend you disregard everything lens said and go ahead and do this. Good luck, b.

    PS – as much as I doubt this idea of people transferring semen from their cock to their hands to the dumbbell, always wash your hands after you’re done.

    Read gooch’s post, too.
