Does not compute

I don't understand how people go to gyms. I mean, I exercise and work out. But the thought of having to go somewhere to do it, and then be surrounded by a bunch of strangers, and pay a monthly fee. I get it, they have lots of cool machines you don't have at home. But there is not much you can't work out with a floor, dumbbells, pull-up bar. I know, I know, different strokes for different folks. I just find the thought of working out surrounded by strangers very weird. Peace and love to everyone! There is room for all of us here on earth!

Haha it's one of the only places to see a man naked in shower, if you are gay and in the closet, which I suspect the world of bring...also for motivation

Whatever works

I like going to the gym because it's motivational to be around other people who are working out. Kind of like taking my laptop to the coffee shop to be around others who are doing work.

Mind you, I go through periods where I don't go to the gym at all and prefer to do solo workouts or just a lot of resting/walking. Like you say, whatever works for each individual person.

Block it all out

It's possible to go to the gym and ignore everyone. It's just background noise and you focus on the workout. I could care less about the people around me. That's how I do it.

same with yoga. you can basically do it on the floor anywhere, but i guess its more about showing off your lulu's

Not everyone has space for equipment, and as you progress you have to buy more stuff, which would cost the same as some monthly gym memberships cost (I pay 21$, others I know pay $15). Plus, you can do indoor cardio when you don't want to go outside for it (not everyone has space for a Peloton). Yoga, on the other hand, I have never paid for.

You can sniff the seat after people use the exercise bike.

It's pretty easy to put a squat rack in the basement---gyms are either for people who want to hit on people (not that we're allowed to do that in Sexless Soviet Canuckistan) or who dont have a basement to put the squat rack in.

Never been to a gym

I'm a woman so I don't need big muscles anyway. I can never understand how people can repeat the same routine again and again without getting bored. I'd rather do a fun activity for exercise like dancing, swimming, skating, hiking, etc. That's just me.
