probably a dumb question...no guts no glory

as I say in my title I realize this is probably a frequently asked question and probably not a good one at that but what the heck I'm game for criticism....first a little background

Ok I'm a senior in college and an athlete my whole life but I over indulged in college life and got way out of shape i wrestled 163 in highschool (granted i am now about 2 inches taller and i guess growing into my "man mass" but i could easily compete at 170 with my body structure) right now im sitting pretty at 215-220 being my top weight and im at a very high body fat (was 7-8% in highschool hydrated)

i want to compete im an animal of competition and I hate my lifestyle and need a sport... and i LOVE mma im not a bloodthirsty meathead and i dont care about the violence i want to compete and am not scared to pounded on

my question is should i just join a gym and go through baptism by fire or should i get in shape on my own (really wouldnt know how for MMA) I have been in contact with a gym and have watched the practices the coaches all seem to know what they are doing and focus on anyone who puts in effort I think one said he has coached anderson silva so that cant be bad unless hes lying I always expect a sales pitch on stuff like this so that wouldnt be a stretch... anyways sorry to ramble but hope you have some thoughts thanks for looking

You could really go either way here. If you join a gym, they will definitely get you into shape. They know how to push people and they will do what they need to do with everyone. Even if you needed to stop, the great thing about training is that the people that go there won't make fun of you or anything. Very helpful people.

If you want to make sure that you will be in shape beforehand, then just get on a structured eating plan and exercise regularly. It is all up to you. Either will work so whichever sounds better to you is what you should do. Just make sure you are having fun, and everything else will fall into place.

It's not a dumb question, don't worry.

This sums it up perfectly.

I suggest getting yourself in a decent physical condition if you're keen. It helps a lot because the start is when it is the hardest from my experience.
