I prefer to get in some type of activity during the weekends - yoga, biking, walking, hiking to name a few. There is so much more time so why sit around and do nothing!

I prefer weekends in the AM. It seems to be much more tranquil that at other times.

I try to keep active no matter what the day because I have the tendency to slack off when I start backing off on the fitness minutes.

I like both. I'll sometimes take Saturday off, but usually get back at it on Sunday. I can also do a really long workout on Sunday's because I have nothing very pressing that day. And I figure I can catch up on my sleep during the sermon.

Both! I love to sleep in on the weekends and then head to the gym after some 'refreshments'; however too often my list of errands is too long to invest the time at the gym I lust for; so I choose sleep.
I LOVE working out in the gym on the weekends - in the mornings. At my gym, a lot of body builders are there on the weekend and they are GREAT motivation.
I also love working out on holidays.

I work out in the early am, so I love to run on weekends - I don't have to get up at 4 am (I start work at 7). I generally wake up early anyway, then I run or do a video or two or do some weight training. You don't have to worry about how long it's taking on weekends.

I work out only on Saturdays. I work out 4 days (5 days if my mood/body allows) during the week so I like to take my rest on the weekend. Saturdays, I do low-impact workouts (I've starting taking swimming lessons). Sundays, I like to rest. Honestly, Sundays are the only days I get to sleep in so I take full advantage of it. It's also my day to prepare my meals for the week so I can focus on that and get in some me-time (at-home pedicures).

I like working out of the weekends because I don't feel so confined to a schedule: work, school, kids, family, dinner, bedtime, etc. Weekends are mostly unscheduled which makes the workout more enjoyable.

I mean, I LIKE resting up any day of the week ! lol ...But, nonetheless, I usually workout at least 6 days a week.

Exercise gives me strength, energy and flexibility. Also, the more active I am, the more calories I burn. Therefore it is daily for me - seven day a week. Sundays are "choice day" for me. I allow myself to take leisurely walk or do stretching as opposed to a hard, long run, weight lifting, or an exercise class such as Pilates or Aerobics.
By striving to do it every day, I get breaks on days I cannot do it due to illness, injury, or occasional travel. It is hard enough to do it daily as it is due to the time exercise requires!

I try to workout one day on the weekend, and take the other day off. Now that I am doing a long run that takes 90+ minutes, Saturday morning is really the best time to do it. Keeping my weekday workouts to about an hour or less leaves me time to cook a healthy dinner, ride my horse, tend my garden, and keep the house from going to heck completely since I work full time.

With full-time work and a toddler, weekends are when I can get my biggest workouts in. It's also a great time for our family to go out together. It's important to me to be a good example for my son, so I try to exercise in his presence whenever I can. He's also a great personal trainer because he loves it when I run and gets whiny if I "just walk" for too long!
On Saturday morning, my husband plays pick-up basketball with friends for an hour or two at a local park, while I walk/jog around the block with our son in his stroller. It's about 1.5 miles around the block and the park's located in a canyon, so I go uphill for half of it and burn some major calories during my laps.
On Sundays, we do a more leisurely walk around the lake as a family -- although I'm slowly working on getting my husband to jog/run at least half the time.

I like to work out on Saturday. No one at the gym at 8:30am. Sunday is rest day with my hubby.

my favorite times for the gym are Friday night and 8:00 Saturday morning. Very few people there, so if I want a full hour on the treadmill...it's all mine!
Sunday mornings I like to run at a park near the house.

I mix it up from weekend to weekend. Maybe do Sat and Sun. Maybe do Sat. Maybe do Sun, etc. I do try to exercise, at least walk on one of the weekend days.

I have to workout on weekends so I can get in enough exercise, I have a chemo schedule to work around. I usually have one or two days during the week that I am not able to workout because of the chemo side effects.
