I'm thinking of going to 24 hour fitness,have you, any complaints or good things I should know?

Since it will be my first gym membership I'm kinda afraid that maybe I might hurt myself,like doing aerobics too fast or too much.I'm not going to get a personal trainer can you still loose weight without lifting weights.I want to check out their dance class'zumba'and do swim aerobics.

  • I go to 24 Hour Fitness. I believe they still offer a free introductory session with a personal trainer to show you how to use the equipment. The only class I have taken is yoga, so I can offer an opinion on any of the other classes. You can lose weight without lifting weights, but strength training increases your metabolism and helps you burn fat. It also tones your muscles, so you look better. I recommend doing both cardio and weights along with changing your diet to lose weight.

  • They have great classes but their equiptment tends to be older. Depends on if you're joining a gym for the classes or more for the exercise equiptment.
