@nineteen87: You can’t sign you both up, and just have him go by and sign paperwork? That’s how Fiance and I did it.

Honestly, it sounds like you may not be able to get him on the same page. Frustrating, I know, but if this is something you really want it’s probably best to take matters into your own hands. My Fiance is the same way – he only likes exercise in a group, competitive setting like basketball or martial arts, whereas I want the machines or cardio classes. So we do our fitness thing separately, because if I had to wait for him every time I wanted to work out I’d be doing it 2-3 times a month vs. the 5-6 days a week I am now. If you’re dead set on him going with you, I’d sit him down and explain that this is REALLY important to you and if you’re gonna do the couple’s membership, he needs to make time to go and sign up with you. Once you’re both signed up, he can choose to attend with you or not, and you’ll have to find a way to push past your self-consciousness and get there on your own (honestly, it’s not so bad if you just focus on what you’re there to do and ignore others around you).

@nineteen87: tell him to go tour and set the account up. Or will he really not go alone?

Most gyms will allow the couple membership even if you don’t go together.  Go sign yourself up and ask if they will allow him to join after you for the same rates even though you don’t sign on the same day.  Tell your Fiance that you can’t wait any longer and that you are getting started with or without him. 

Most gyms have extended hours, 6am to 10pm or even later.  Can you not book a tour together outside working hours?  Honestly, it sounds like yout Fiance isn’t overly motivated to do this, and is holding you back.  If you really want to get to the gym, I say just go.  let your Fiance make the decision if he will go, but don’t hold yourself back just so you can go together.
