    I go to pure gym. It has good cardio machines and good weights section as well. At the Manchester branch we 3 benches. You can have a secondary gym as well. Any time you can freeze your membership for £4 a month. It's only £17.99 a month and £25 admin fee. If you look for new ones around your town it will be £10.99 a month for the first few members joined.

    Think of all those people who buy yearly gym memberships for New Years Resolutions then only go for a few weeks. You could be that type of person (albeit at a different time of year). Common misconception people make that spending money = giving them motivation to exercise. The motivation must come from within and you must make it a habit.

    'Range of difference exercises' what do you even want to get out of the gym? You sound clueless and without any real goal. You will likely just turn into part of the 99% of women who go in and do an hour or more of ridiculously light cardio without putting in any effort, then go on the leg machines at some piddly little weight for hundreds of reps, convincing themselves this is adequate. Is this what you want?

    It was helpful advice, a tad blunt, but helpful non the less. You would be best served taking something from it.
