I'm about to start Gym for the very first time. I'm not keen on trainers, could I wear something that looks more like a pump/plimsoll such as skechers or similar or is that a no-no? Thanks

In my view you need trainers. Even if you aren't running you will need something to support your foot and ankles. Go to a good sports shop and ask for advice. Tons of nice styles.

You need proper support. Get trainers

I just started 6 weeks ago. I went into a Nike factory shop and the member of staff was amazing. He was really knowledgeable and listened to what I was saying. I bought some very lightweight gym trainers and to be fair they are not dissimilar to plimsolls, very light and flat soles. You definitely need to buy some trainers and get some advice in a shop
