What weight lifting/exercise routine should I follow as a beginner?

I am 6′ and 200lbs. I am joining a gym and want to know what’s best for exercise and weight lifting for just normal toning up and maybe some belly loss. The gym has treadmills, elipticals, etc and weight area that I know nothing about…Any help in both or either is appreciated! Including how often a week to do it and any rotations. I’ve never worked out before, but am generally not weak.

    I am 17 and i started weight training very young so i know everything about it. I went on protein shakes which worked well for me. (as long as you do the right work out) . Go to the gym 3-4 times a week. But each time you go, work on a different muscle. e.g day 1 arms, day 2. legs, day 3 Fitness day 5 arms. If you work on a particular muscle two days in a row, it will bugger your arms up because they are trying to grow but u are still working hard on them.
    Hope it kinda helps

    To get some background, pick up a copy of Muscle and Fitness. Learn what to use, how much to use, and when to use it. You wouldn’t get a driver’s license without taking the exam. Why kill yourself in the gym without proper knowledge and preparation?

    Hey Kyle, I have been member of a couple gyms and they have always had great information available right there from the personal trainers. When you get there, just ask for help in setting up a program that will help you achieve the goals you want for yourself. They should also walk you through the program and make sure that you are doing the exercises properly. Doing the exercises properly will give you maximum benefit from the exercise you are doing and help avoid injury. And yes you do want to give muscle groups that you work out a day of rest. I am confident the gym will get you on the right path to give you the results you want. Good luck, and be sure to stick with it.

    3-4 Times a week for 1-2 hours a day should be good. First day upperbody 2nd lowerbody next upper next lower
    Since you’re a beginner I would just mess around your first day see how much weight is your max.
    You should try putting on muscle before toning.
    Start with simple dumbbell curls, move on to squats bench presses.
    Ask some people around the gym for help. The gym I go to everyone is really nice and taught me the basics when I first started to workout.
    When you’ve put on some muscle, toning exercises are the same excercises you do except lower weight and high reps.
