Listening Script: The Gym

- Hello, my name's Jane and I'd like to ask a few questions about getting

- Hi Jane. What can I do for you?

- I need to get in shape.

- Well, you've come to the right place. Have you been doing anything lately?

- I'm afraid not.

- OK. We'll start off slow. Which type of exercise do you enjoy doing?

- I like aerobics, but I
hate jogging. I don't mind some weight-lifting, though.

- Great! That gives us plenty to work with. How often can you
work out?

- Twice or three times a week would be good.

- Why don't we start with an aerobics class twice a week followed by a little weight-lifting?

- Sounds fine to me.

- You'll need to start slowly and build up gradually to three or four times a week.

- OK. What kind of equipment do I need?

- You'll need a
leotard and some trainers.

- Is that all? How do I sign up for the classes?

- We'll need you to join the
gym, and then you can choose classes, which fit your schedule best.

- Great! I can't wait to get started. Thanks for your advice.

- No problem. I'll see you in aerobics class!
