In the Gym
  1. Hello, my name is Jane and I'd like to ask a few questions about getting fit.
  2. Hi Jane. What can I do for you?
  1. I need to get in shape.
  2. Well, you've come to the right place. Have you been doing any exercise lately?
  1. I'm afraid not.
  2. OK. We'll start of slow. Which type of exercise do you enjoy doing?
  1. I like doing aerobics, but I hate jogging. I don't mind doing some weight-lifting, though.
  2. Great, that gives us plenty to work with. How often can you work out?
  1. Twice or three times a week would be good.
  2. Why don't we start with an aerobics class twice a week followed by a little weight lifting?
  1. Sounds fine to me.
  2. You'll need to start slowly, and build up gradually to three or four times a week.
  1. OK. What kind of equipment will I need?
  2. You'll need a leotard and some sneakers.
  1. Is that all? How do I sign up for the classes?
  2. We'll need you to join the gym and then you can choose which classes fits your schedule best.
  1. Great! I can't wait to get started. Thanks for your advice.
  2. No problem. I'll see you in aerobics class!
