Sean Hyson, CSCSEverything you wanted to know about starting a fitness regimen, but were to embarrassed to ask.
NOBODY LIKES BEING THE NEW GUY.
We know, because we were in your shoes once: feeling like everyone's watching you and taking note of how weak you are; not having a clue how to do an exercise but being even more embarrassed to ask for help; and wondering if the music is that bad in every gym. (FYI, it is.)
Yes, it sucks being a gym newbie, and that's why we recommend you don't stay one for long. The sooner you learn the basics, the faster you'll graduate to the ranks of seasoned lifters. We can help you make up ground and see results in as few as six weeks. The following pages cover all your questions about training, nutrition, and everything else.
Welcome to the brotherhood of iron.
