Since purchasing a home gym from , I have been exercising almost very morning! It is certainly more motivating to exercise at you own home because of the convenience. The fitness equipment I have bought includes a treadmill, rowing machine and my favorite, an elliptical trainer.

I admit I'm a addict!!! :oops:

I used to go about 8 times a week! 6 days and twice monday and wednesday!
Since I've got small kids ( 4 of them) I've cut back and reclaimed the weekend to my family and go mainly when they are in childcare!
I go 5 days a week - and do classes or PT!

Mon - I do 1 class
Tues- 2 classes
Wed- 1 class
Thurs _ 2 classes
fri- 2 classes or just PT.

I started going so I used my membership and didn't waste my money ( as I previously went 5 times in a 6 month period) Now I go cause I love it and very social!! My gym has cool instructors and free childcare - exercise is just a bonus plan!! :wink:

I've only just got a gym membership and I'm going on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for 45 minute weights sessions. All other days except Sunday I run.

I go to Curves which is only a 30 min session usually 3 times a week. I do some stuff at home as well, like squats, lunges etc and dvds. I'm starting to swim on Sundays, but I need a bit more cardio me thinky.

I live 30kms from town and work 3 full days a week so on work days by the time I finish work the gym is closed and I don't have time in the morning as I have lots of animal chores before work.

So for me, its about 3x a week. I'm trying to find the best routine for me but its something like this:

2 x a week gym, 1 day cardio only, the other day a class (lots to choose from) as well as some cardio and weights and the 3rd day is a martial arts class (not at the gym) then gym for light cardio and weights. If I can squeeze a 4th day in (gets too expensive with petrol though) then i'd choose to do a martial arts class.

I was going to curves instead of the gym as the gym is only new, but in the process of cancelling my curves membership.

Then I do walking, home cardio, horse riding, tae bo etc at home through the week and try to go to the pool at least once a week for laps. Variety is the spice of life :D
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!

I hit the gym about 4 times a week. Nowadays since I really don't need anymore muscle I mainly hit the heavy bag, do crunches and back excercises, some pull ups and burpees. That's about it.

it varies every week. im a shift worker, so i try fit it in around my shifts. plus its hard when i work night shifts because i spend all day asleep, and then the gym is closed when im ready for action, but im gonna start waking up at about 1pm and going to the gym, then come home & sleep again. if my husband is out with his mates on the weekend i will go to the gym. on average, minimum 4 times a week, usually 5 times a week, max 6 times a week. im a firm believer in having a day of rest.
