Default Training in Gym

Hey I noticed some people in the same type of situation that I am in right now. I am new to boxing and such and I know that I should be in the gym with a trainer but I have a few questions maybe you guys could help me out....

1) Cost - How much does it cost for the gym that you guys go to and to have a trainer? Do I need to buy my own equipment and things (sorry I am a newbie to boxing)

2) Physique - Im not in the best shape of my life right now and I havent really ever lifted weights but been more of an endurance type of guy do I need to do anything else? I try to run as much as I can and do some light weight workouts...

3) Time - How long are you guys usually at the gym for? I have no real gym experience but one thing I know is that I want to learn how to box, I've always been a natural fighter

4) How do I pick a good trainer? And what do I need to sacrifice in order to really get into this? I go to school and that takes up most of my time and thats about it...

5) Basically, I want to know EVERYTHING that I should know before going to a gym with a trainer and I want to know what type of questions I should ask that I normally would not think about but is necessary to get a good trainer and sessions because I dont wanna seem like a dumbass that doesnt know ****...

Man just find a gym and go. The rest falls into place. The hardest part is walking through the door. Mine only costs 20.00 a month. In ours, our trainer helps everyone. Its more like a team atmoshpere. When he sees you coming in and trying, he'll work you out. Lots of things i Learned i learned from other fighters as well who give you a hand. In a good gym everyone seems to want to help everyone. The gym i go to is in atlanta and its mostly amatuers and pros who are starting out. However, some really good guys have came thoruhg there and still come in and work with the younger guys. Vernon forest came through, O'neil bell worked out alot there up until a year or so ago. Just go in and work hard and it will all work out how you want it to.
