When I started my get healthy trip, I knew it had to be as easy to maintain as possible, so a gym membership was comes and goes and I didn't want to rely on something that could disappear. Also, I've become a runner and value the opportunity to train outside (CT or run) in all types of weather because you never know what race day will look like! :)

no, I save time and work out at home

Yes, almost everyday. I like the variety there and having so many people around me unconsciously keeps me from giving up when it gets tough.

It's your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

I work out at home with my own equipment. That allows me extra time for exercise. I used to spend 20 min to and 20 min from the gym unless there was a traffic jam,, time packing, changing, get the machine which was almost impossible after work and the stress of dealing with people

I joined the gym during the winter months. I left for work in the dark and returned in the dark and lacked the motivation to exercise. It did not take long before I was super motivated and now I usually just go to the gym once or twice a week.

I prefer to strength train at the gym. I like the variety of equipment and the space. I will ST at home in a pince, but I prefer the gym.

I prefer running outdoors as my cardio so I rarely do cardio in the gym.

I'm contemplating doing a few classes at the gym.

Too many distractions when working out at home. Planet Fitness is a great gym, no frills and truly people of all sizes go there. I still don't love the gym, but I do like it.

Yes. I do yoga, pilates swimming and aqua fit.

Yes, I like the machines and the focus there. I also like to swim with my bad knees. I also workout at home when I can't get there.

In high school we had P.E. in the gym or outside
In college I taught Red Cross Swim lessons at the YMCA and also used the gym at the college.
I married and moved to a community with no gym except at the school which was open on Saturdays and Sundays for public use - and I used it.
But I also go outside as much as possible- gardening, walking/hiking/jogging, biking and swimming outside in lakes, ponds, and the ocean in summer

In 1990, our community built a private fitness club. It was too expensive to join then, but in 1992, I traded teaching swimming and lifeguard lessons for use. In 1996, I went to paying dues once a month.

Since being involved in that fitness club over 20 years, I have learned to lift weights, improved my swimming, started taking Aerobics, Yoga, Pilates, went back to Racketball, and started Zumba.

If there is any way you can get into a gym, I highly recommend it. The classes and masters swimming have been great for me.

Yes, I go to LA Fitness. I like it because I can go to any location. I got to spin class at one club with one group of friends, and I do my regular ST and cardio at another club with other friends. I go anywhere from 4-7 days/week.

Yes - It is where I do my most successful strength training! (I don't have space, equipment, or lack of interruptions at home.) -- It is also most useful in our rainy weather (usually @ 8 months of the year!).

My apartment complex has a gym that I use if the weather is bad, but I prefer to do weights in my living room and walk outside if at all possible

Yes, I have been a member for 2 years and I go 5 times a week. 2 hour long boxing classes and 3 weights sessions per week.

No, and I don't really care to. I tried it, just not my thing. Especially If I want to do my own schedule of what I will do.

Plus I have my own exercise bike, steps, balls, weights and my own bowflex and I can turn up the music as loud as I want.

Sometimes. I personally decided that working out shouldn't be a chore, but something fun and I didn't find gyms to be all-that-fun. My workouts are things that I enjoy, such as swimming, riding horses, dancing, etc. I even find walking outdoors to be fun.

However I will go to the gym if, for some reason, I'm not participating in my activities (such as due to a holiday break, or the end of the season).

I do, since the one at my school is free. I really like having access to all of the equipment. Plus, with it being inside, I don't have to deal with the weather. I'm worried for this summer when I may have to start running outside...

4/6/13 3:03 P

Yep, I have for over 20 years
