If you have 20 pounds or more to lose, you may already feel self conscious about your looks. A good way to find out whether a workout is right for you, is to try one. Many fitness centers will give you a free trial. You can make a few calls in your area. Simply pick up the Yellow Pages and ask to visit the place.
