So I'm trying to decide if I should take up fencing. I have wanted to do it for a while but my issue is that the closest place to me is an hour away and I have a shitty car for gas. I can get my equipment no problem but classes seem expensive and also I don't want to be an adult surrounded by kids

Man, if it interests you, give it a shot.
I do historical fencing (basically, we use rapiers and daggers and whatnot instead of foils) and it's fun on a bun.
Expensive, but a neat hobby.

See if there's any closer options or if you've got any friends already involved, then take the plunge if you're curious and can afford it.

I live in piss shit nowhere so that's kinda my only option and I prefer modern fencing for its speed

It can be expensive, yeah, depending on what fencing academies you have access to. Sounds like you're in a pretty shitty spot for it. If you buy your own gear, though (which is a one-time investment), and either make friends who are into it or take it up at the same time as one of your friends does, all you need to practice is a piece of chalk to draw a rough fencing strip on the pavement.

It's pretty much just up to you, dude. I can tell you it's an absolute fucking blast, almost from the first day, and phenomenal exercise if you do it a few times weekly (as long as you're doing the footwork correctly; you have to really bend your knees.) There's way worse things to spend your time and money on.

Who gives a shit.

Go to your gym and lift weights.
