    Hey guys I haven't worked-out before so I need some help and pointers because I have a little bit of fat to lose.

    If there is anyone who is in Atlanta that can help coach me that would be even better.

    Thank you ahead of time for your help

    Before you do anything, I think you need to articulate your goals... what you want to achieve, how much time you have, what effort you are willing to give and be willing to ask for help (from varied sources, without feeling odd about it).

    I certainly would work with a trainer(s) to make sure you know how to use various gym equipment and take "baby steps" to start to move forward in
    gaining insight about how your body is reacting, how you are feeling and to gain confidence. Money might be a factor for you. If you can afford to hire a trainer, that can be helpful. If you can't, don't dispair, some gyms give some good "beginner" training at no or very low rates.

    Yeah I should have be more specific in my goals, that was hindsight on my part. Its just needing to lose my gut that I gained after leaving high school, and as for money I don't have anything to spend at a gym or on a trainer so I just needed some recommendations for things I can do at home to help lose the weight besides running.

    This does help alot, the only thing I need to figure out now is where to get a cheap weight bench for lifting.

    I bought an entire home gym for less than the cost of a lifetime membership at even a cheap gym.

    And, I bought 100% of my gym at Sports Authority...the most expensive place you can shop...yet it was all "relatively" cheap, compared to what you'd spend for gym memberships.
