Just after a general opinion, should I gain some anaerobic and aerobic fitness before joining a gym?
I am interested in joining a gym and training, at this stage mainly for fitness reasons, but could see myself enjoying sparring. I would say I'm unfit (not overweight, but asthma and laziness have held me back over the last few years), and even though I'm slightly defined in muscle tone, wouldn't say I have much muscular endurance, power or strength.
The reason I ask is that the 'gyms' in my area seem to be only backyard trainers. Not sure if they want to work with unfit people. I keep reading join a gym, and it makes me doubt hitting the heavy bag at home in case of poor form.
