Most gyms have people there to help you set up a routine that is right for you - these people can vary in quality (and in some cases, I've experienced that all they reallly wanted to do is sell you their personal training services), but, take advantage of them, get your free sessions, take notes, ask questions - and after you've been at it for a while, ask someone to watch you for your form.

I caution you to be careful who you take advice from, some fit people at the gym may be happy to show you something, but there is no reason to assume that they know much about you or your needs!

Good luck, joining a gym was life changing for me (in 2004), in a very good way!
