Two and a half months ago.

Diet, get Robb Wolf's Paleo book. Follow his directions.

We get much more excited at my gym about the progress of people like you then the young strong ones. When you talk to the trainers they should be talking about scaling and technique from the beginning. Good trainers will carefully monitor how you feel the next day after each workout. It is the first question I ask my new people ever day. This allows me to adjust things correctly.

Couldn't agree more. Everyone at the CF gym I go to is very supportive and willing to help, not just the trainers. It's really encouraging having people realize you're new and offer you help and direction instead of just judging you for not knowing what you're doing.

Re: kinda confused...

Freddie, 45 minutes is a ways to drive each way, no doubt that. My commute to my closest box is 62 miles, which is about 55 minutes each way. My commute to work on the other hand is 4 minutes. It isn't hard to justify because I see the time/gas/money as a long-term investment. I would certainly drive that far for the right job, so why shouldn't I for my health? I only make it to 3 days a week due to schedules and all but I've seen much progress in six months. Good luck!
