When I go to the Y, I use their Cybex weight machines. I could pay extra for Nautilus, but in looking in the Nautilus room, the only difference I can see is the name.

I lift weights for at least 2 hours a week; sometimes 2 1/2 hours. I haven't lost any weight from it, but my clothes are loser and I've lost inches.

I had a program designed for me at the gym that I go to, but I am hesitating to get started on it for some reason. I think that because I work shift work and have different schedules every day of every week, it is hard to plan when to go to the gym. Yes, I know it's an excuse. LOL

I go to Group Power classes. They are a whole body workout. I like having a certified trainer there to instruct properly so nobody gets hurt.

I lift weights as well. I love doing lifting! And for what work outs, it all depends. I like to mix it up, but I do bicep curls, tricep dips, chest press, lateral shoulder raises, among others. They have a lot of great exercises on here.

I have a weight bench and a couple of free weights, but haven't got a bar yet (silly, I know!). I mainly use the bench with hand weights. I also love kettlebell and have a couple different sizes of those.

Anyone else? What workouts do you do and how often?
