I work for the YMCA so I have a membership which entitles me to use their gym. I've seen it a few times and it looks rather nice. However I have never used it because I'm too self-concious. Anyway I plan on going tomorrow or next week. In your experience, what time is the gym least crowded? I've heard around 10-11 AM is a good time to go, do you find this to be the case?
Also, as I've have never been to the gym, what is some general advice you'd give to someone going for the first time?
