I joined a gym last week and I'm motivated to get in shape. There's a free consultation with a personal trainer where they try to sell you sessions. It's really not in the budget, but I would like to learn how to strength train especially since I'm paying for access to the whole gym - might as well. I have only ever done cardio or classes like yoga, Pilates, Zumba, etc.

It's tempting to get the trainer to have her show me what to do - but I'm trying to figure out how to not spend the money. Maybe YouTube videos? But they can't correct you. We're new to our city so I can't ask a friend really.

So, how did you learn?
