I like to workout at the gym -- great place for people watching while I'm exercising!

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 - mornings at home I do Pilates or one of my Firm DVDs (or I just got my free DVDs for pre-ordering The Spark Solution...can't wait to give those a try!

after work and weekends I go to the gym for spin, Tabata, or ST

I also ride my bike and run or walk around town or at the park

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

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.

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).

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?
