If anyone is in the Los Angeles valley area I can recommend an excellent
personal trainer that has done wonders for me in three years. My doctor
insisted I start an exercise program three years ago and I knew from several
previous abortive attempts I could not do it on my own. Bryan is a great
trainer and I have gotten great results as his client. If you are not in Los
Angeles he can also be consulted on building a home gym etc.

His WEB page is:

Dave, I don't know where you live but, I think there are Gold's or World's
gyms in most places in the US at least.

>From my own experience i would highly recommend starting with a personal
trainer to get form correct.
