My company has a gym and showers here so I am able to work out during my lunch for 45 mins. After I eat my lunch, then in the evening, I usually go for a walk for an hour 3-4 days a week.

I run outside three days a week and do DVDs at home three days a week. I've belonged to a gym in the past, but due to budget considerations I needed to let it go right now.

Both at home and the gym. At home I'll go for a run or do an exercise video. Sometimes I go outside on my porch and do stretching and take my small weights and do strength training.

I prefer to work out at home. I work in a hospital with a schedule that is all over the place. I use Jillian Michaels Body Revolution. It's 30 minutes a day 6 days a week. I hope at some point that the hospital will put a gym in, Lord knows there are a ton of us that need it!

Both! The gym where I go to college is free, and I have plenty of fitness equipment/resources at home as well. I prefer to do my strength training at the gym though.

At home and walking outside. I find gym memberships to be a waste of money.

I do my cardio mostly at the gym: Treadmill, Elliptical, Stairstepper.
I do my ST at home: ChaLEAN Extreme, or Jackie Warner.
I also do cardio at home to maybe add an extra day: HIIT, Turbo Fire, TapoutXT, I have many DVD's to chose from to keep it fresh.

I have a gym membership, and that's what I did through the winter. Now that it's nice outside I've barely used the gym - I run outside and do strength training (I only use body weight) after my runs, either outside or when I get home. I'm starting to consider canceling my gym membership.

Both. I run at home, very occassionally do ST at home, and go to the gym when the weather is bad to run and primarily for ST.

Interestingly enough, I joined the gym because I had no motivation to work out at home. Now I'm doing good if I get to the gym twice a week for my ST sessions. However, in order to get the ball rolling, I was at the gym 3 times a week for several months.

I do not have any fitness equipment at home other than my own body. So I run and walk outside and I do ST using my own body weight.

I can't work out at home. I'm never motivated alone as I am around my peers in class. I wouldn't push myself as hard.

I'm actually a mix of home, gym and work.

Home - If I work out at home, I'm generally walking around my neighborhood. From my house to the closest major road is exactly 5 miles. I love being outside and I love the fact that the community was built for walkers, joggers and bikers (sidewalk, trails, etc.). If I'm inside my house and I want to work out, I generally use my Xbox Kinect (Kinect Sports or Dance Central).

Work - When I'm at work, I do a lot of walking. I walk from the train station to my job (1.5 miles), walk during lunch (2.5 miles) and walk from my job back to the train station (1.5 miles). I work in downtown DC, so the area is very pedestrian friendly and there is always a lot to see (I work 2 blocks from the White House).

Gym - As much as I hate having a monthly bill for the gym, I am a member of LA Fitness. From my experience, I've never been able to lose a good amount of weight without doing some weight training. The gym is the only place I can go to get access to the weight training equipment (I'm not cluttering up my house with exercise equipment). Also I like the gym because of the elliptical trainers, it gives me a more intense cardio workout than walking and takes less time. The gym also gives me a place to exercise when the weather is bad or I feel like working out at night).

HOME. I have a bunch of different DVD's and mix them up each month. I have been doing this for the last 2 1/2 years.

I recently ended my YMCA membership since it is getting nice out in the hopes that I would just go outdoors. I am curious to know how many people work out at home and how many people work out at the gym and what activities you do?
