    There are a lot of missing spaces in your post. Please use the "Edit Post" function to add spaces between words where necessary.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Join / enroll / sign up / sign on

    I am going to join a gym
    I am going to sign up at a gym


    The others need a preposition:
    I am going to enroll at/with a gym
    I am going to sign on at/with a gym
