and if you work out at the gym do you also workout at home?

I had a gym membership for a little while and I never felt comfortable there. It wasn't the best gym and they weren't really helpful so that may be part of it, but I always felt uncomfortable and never got a really good workout there because I was so self-conscious.

I am working out at home now. Dh and I workout together so that helps. I would like to have more equipment but I don't really want to go to a gym now. In the past I felt like I would get better results if I went to the gym but now I don't think so. I think you can get a really good workout at home too.

I've never had a gym membership, but I'm pretty sure I would rather workout at home (or running around my neighborhood).

Definitely at home. I barely can find the time to workout at home so there is no way that I could find time to go the gym. Over the years I have slowly purchased everything that I need for a great home gym so I have everything I need at home.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I haven't gone to a gym to workout in like 13-14 years....back then I'd spend hours there. Now...at home is the way to go for sure!! I also like going to the park and walking and doing their steps.

If I do classes at the gym I like it but otherwise I like to be at home if I am working out by myself.

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

The only gym I went to was the rec center at the college I attended. I went a couple times with a couple friends to do the circut training but that was it. I though about taking some classes, but never had the time. So, if I had close friends to workout with then I might go to a gym. But on my own....nope. I prefer to just work out at home.

I workout at home and at a gym, but I prefer the gym unless I'm running. I have two best friends that I usually go to the gym with, and I'm friends with the owner, so I think that helps.
