    A PT is gonna cost you a pretty penny bro.

    You know anyone who trains already? That is best for motivation, you will train even when you're not 100% feeling it if it means you don't let your training buddy down, then you'll feel cracking from doing it.

    If you are going to go down the PT route I'd suggest getting an initial induction so you know how to use the kit and I'd book 1 PT session a week for a month. Get them to show you a good routine that matches your goals and stick to that over the next month or so.

    A good PT will also give you nutrition advice that compliment your training and goals, this is going to be one of the biggest factors in shredding that layer of fat.

    There are lots of experienced guys on here so don't worry about asking for advice.

    Welcome pal.

    thanks Andy
    im also not sure whether to go to a conventional gym or one of the alternative Personal Training Studio
    as I may find lifting  free weighs repetitive, being new to this and not sure the right way to exercise ,like you say I need to find someone in the Wigan area who already trains who can fit in with my work pattern or I go for a personnel trainer 
     
    thanks Gary

    My advice would be look around, by that I mean go into the gyms. See how they make you feel. The Internet has a way of making things look better or worse than it actually is.

    When I 1st started training again I found it quite intimidating as I was out of shape and people were throwing weights about that I wouldn't even have been able to pick up.

    I chose a health club which had minimal weights but everything I needed to get cracking with my training in a non intimidating environment.

    I eventually outgrew the weights available and as such moved to a new gym more aimed at bodybuilding etc.

    This worked for me, I'm not saying it's the way to go but I felt comfortable doing it this way.

    Hope this helps bro
