Let me be the first to say that I'm not a big believer in joining a gym as a means to lose weight and/or improve cardio-vascular. Gym's generally are expensive, and more often than not tend to be a waste of resources if a person is not truly committed to finding their feet.  It's a great thought to believe that by owning a gym membership that you will get up and out, but the truth is you probably will not.

I believe you must commit to finding your feet before getting a gym membership. If you cannot find the will to simply get up and walk, ride, swim, etc, then going to gym everyday will quickly lose is luster. Spend a few weeks just on working on the mentality of of not being sedentary and then consider a gym membership if it will improve the quality of the time spent being less sedentary.

If you can't afford a gym membership, chances are you live in a city full of stairs, go up and down them. If you're in the country, find a hill and go up and down that hill. Walk/ride the streets, paths, roads. Swim. Play in the park with the kids. See if you can still make it across the monkey bars, and if you can't, keep at it until you can. Do your pushups, crunches, planks, lunges, squats, weights, yoga, martial arts, etc.
