I am joining a gym and want to know what's best for exercise and weight lifting for just normal toning up and maybe some belly loss. The gym has treadmills, elipticals, etc and weight area that I know nothing about...Any help in both or either is appreciated! Including how often a week to do it and any rotations. I've never worked out before, but am generally not weak.
I believe this question has nothing to do with the specific topic. To answer your question, somebody needs to evaluate you first in order to prescribe appropriate exercises. If you are not dealing with an injury then you can talk to a qualified/certified trainer at the gym, otherwise find a PT. If you are not dealing with an injury but you are concerned about your general health and not just burning calories then also talk to a PT. A PT can evaluate your functional strength, range of motion, muscle length and postural asymmetries, anthropometric characteristics, cardiopulmonary status and so on, and will help you set short term and long term goals. You might have to pay out of pocket if you don't have an injury as insurances usually do not reimburse for 'wellness'.
