Arm pain, what could it be?

I'm 43 and have just started back at the gym now they have finally opened in the UK.

Joined a gym for the first time . . .

I signed up for Planet Fitness recently and haven't yet gone. I'm using Planet Fitness only to take showers, and to use the toilets. It's possible I may use some of the equipment, but I doubt it. I plan on taking paper towels to dry off after showering. I don't want to take a proper towel. I...

Fat to muscle...?

I'm fairly new to paying attention to what I am trying to do as far as working out and exercise ise. I used to just go do it, with out a real goal. My question is, if I want to turn fat into muscle, is that considered maintaining my weight while I just lift with little cardio?

How much cardio is too much?

Hi! I am 53. My entire life I've been the square, strong shape rather than the slim, endurance type. Cardio has been something I've suffered through. At last I've found a workaround, that means I enjoy cardio. I look forwards to cardio in the gym and incorporate it more. But... so far in my...
