Why I Never Go to the Gym. Plus, a $25 Dick's Gift Card Giveaway (Courtesy of XShadyside 24 hour gyms Pittsburgh)

Confession: I love to workout but I'm not a member of a gym or fitness place. I don't go to spin classes, yoga classes or anything else. I basically run outside year round, ride my bike when I can, occasionally swim at the local rec center with the geriatric crowd and do core work on the floor of my living room (as if I do core work, right).

The whole gym thing is just not for me, mostly because:
  • I'm cheap
  • I don't want to drive there
  • I like being outside even if it's a snowing/raining/gusting
  • Sometimes gyms, well, they smell (BO, too much perfume, farts)
  • I don't like grunting people lifting weights
  •  I tend to fall off the equipment
My gym

Not so say the gym is a bad idea. It's just not for me. I used to go to a gym - mostly to do yoga and simply for the company of people. Maybe I'm becoming anti social in my older age.

That said, I know that there are countless reasons people love to hang at the gym.
  • Accountabilty - Your gym rat friends are waiting for you. Don't let them down.
  • Bathrooms nearby - Yeah, if I did go to the gym this would be reason #1. I've had far too many emergencies with not place to go.
  • Protection from the weather - Because it's always about 70 degrees and dry in the gym.
  • Force you to cross train - If you are paying x number of dollars a month for a gym membership, maybe you will actually cross train.
  • Meet people - If you're into that sort of thing
  • People watching - From fake boobs to bulges to perfect and imperfect bodies, it's all there.
  • Child Care - Huge bonus if you've got little ones. 

So, want to win $25 to Dick's Sporting Goods to get some new fancy workout gear (to wear to the gym or not, you decide. Or you could just get a golf shirt). Enter here. Giveaway ends 11/14. Open to US residents. You must enter a comment to enter. Good luck.

  1. Yes I am! Having an option for childcare so I can run solo is my main reason

  2. No gym for me! I don't even own a treadmill. It's running outside for me.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'm with you on gyms! Although I love that they keep people accountable, they are often so intimidating! And, if you don't go in with a plan regarding weights, you often have no idea what to do. Home gyms and outdoor runs are where it's at!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Too cheap to join a gym, plus I prefer to be outdoors.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Love the gym!!! But, I'm military. So it's free. :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm not a fan of gyms either, I prefer to not worry if anyone is looking at me

    ReplyDelete
  7. Funny- I used to be all about the gym. Then we moved further away from our closest gym (now it's about 15 minutes away) and I never go. So I'm paying for a membership I never use. I think next year we will just upgrade the home gym and forgo the fancy membership.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Not a member right now. They're opening a new one near me though, so maybe I'll give that one a try.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have a membership to Planet Fitness and maybe use it monthly. I much prefer being outside as well. I want to actually incorporate some strength training after this 50k, so hopefully I'll be back!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I quit the gym years ago...best decision I've ever made.

    ReplyDelete
  11. No gym membership for me! I don't even own a treadmill.

    ReplyDelete
  12. No gym for me! I bought a treadmill so I can workout whenever I want to.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I do have a gym membership but like you, I prefer being outdoors running and hold off to go to the gym during the winter or random hurricane...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like gyms for the strength training classes but don't belong to one currently since it's inconvenient and have a local college fitness center I can use for free.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like variety (even when I am seriously training for something, the cross training keeps me sane...and as it turns out, uninjured---go figure) so I currently belong to 2 gyms (*ducks*). I have an unlimited membership at a Pure Barre studio and I just picked up a package at Orange Theory (4 sessions/month). There is a huge social component in this for me because I often tend to run solo .

    ReplyDelete
  16. I belong to a Crossfit gym. It holds me accountable to get cross training in.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm super cheap. Plus, all I did when I did go to a gym was run on the treadmill...and only if there was ice outside!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have a membership, but I never go. It was great for me when I needed accountability. But I'm much better at getting outside and getting my workout done on my own.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I teach once class a week at the gym for: A. free membership B. strength training and C. use of treadmill if the weather is just too hideous outside. I'm with you though . . . wold much rather be running outside :-D

    ReplyDelete
  20. YYEEEESSSSS!!! I like using weight machines so I don't drop barbells on myself, plus the childcare option is crucial.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This comment has been removed by the author.

  22. Yes, because I get a free membership for teaching spin!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I didn't go to the gym for over 15 years but after experiencing injury after injury running, I decided it was time to up my core strength and put some stress on my ligaments and tendons. HUGE improvement in my running health. I go to a gym that has HIIT classes. In and out, they tell me what to do and I'm done. Then I can think when I'm running :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Gym membership is the first expense to go when you are trying to save money. Though I'd probably still be a member if the child care times at the nearby gym worked for me, but they don't.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was having better luck with Orange Theory, but now I've fallen off that wagon too...for no good reason other than laziness. It was totally helping me get stronger and faster (and, oh yeah, also giving me IT band troubles).

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love my gym membership for when I wimp out during a cold weather run!

    ReplyDelete
  27. No. I live in the middle of nowhere and the nearest gym is 15 miles away. Ambition to drive that far to workout? ha ha NO. We set up our basement with treadmills, weights, and a giant TV to watch trash TV while pounding out the miles instead.

    ReplyDelete
  28. No gym membership for me! Too cheap. But I love the stationary bike and could just ride for hours (not heavy workout, but at a decent speed) if I could read/watch tv while doing it. So I've thought about buying one for my house. or not... :) because running is way better. hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Not a member of a gym. Too pricey and with all the resources available online and outdoors there isn't a need for me.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have a gym membership and LOVE it! I go 5 days a week, in addition to running 7 days a week. I lift weights, go to TRX classes and yoga classes.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am not a gym member, too expensive for my student budget. I run, bike, and attempt to lift weights while watching netflix (I usually do 3 reps and forget I am supposed to be working out).

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm a member, but never go. Run outside and do workouts at home.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah I'm a gym rat......
    Or used to be. You made me realize I've got to do a better job at cross training!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I joined a gym when I moved house & thought I might get lost whilst out running! I only ever used the treadmill as the other machines scared the hell out of me! Anyway one Sunday I was running on the machine, it was a beautiful spring day & as I ran I looked longingly out of the window & thought for goodness sake buy a bloody street map woman! I did, I still got lost but I never set foot in the gym again! And another thing I actually prefer running in downright adverse weather cos I think I'm a bit strange! They've just forecast snow here in the U.K. So here's hoping!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I was a gym member and never renewed my 6 month registration. I have to get a membership because I don't like dripping sweat in my living room.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am a member of a gym because 1) it's cheap for me (milking that student discount!), 2) I've had enough injuries/physical limitations that having access to non-impact cardio is a must, and 3) I'm really stupid lazy about doing strength training unless I feel obligated to do it because of the gym membership. Plus there's a sauna, and my gosh that feels nice sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Not a member of a gym. I live in Louisiana and can run outside throughout the year.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm in total agreement. Last time I joined a class I tore out my knee doing improper lunges! Plus when you are outside or alone, no one is paying attention to your B.O or farts!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I go to LA Fitness. It's across the street from work so it's very convenient to take a spin class or swim at lunchtime or before work. My runs are outside the majority of the time and I even run past XShadyside every now and then although I have never noticed it. I'm too busy taking in all of the sights I guess. I used to do more treadmill running but I now avoid it in lieu of getting outside.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It isn't the gym so much. It's the locker room. It's isn't just the women with perfume. I've been swimming a little later (that retired thing) and one guy is awash with some foul smelling perfume. I actually went back out and revisited the hot tub till he was gone. There's another one with bad BO and that's after he gets out of the pool and showers. And stale cigarette smoke, don't get me started.

    And yes, I know I can't win. But tell you what. Put me in the draw. If I win I'll generously gift it to you or one of your buddies.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm a faithful gym rat. Although I do run outside 95% of the time.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am pretty good about going to my gym for weights. My saggy skin would look REALLY saggy if I didn't do weights at least once a week.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I used to be a faithful gym-goer until I started running. Now I HATE the days I am stuck inside to workout because it is unsafe outside (icy, dodging snow plows, lightning and thunder, etc.)
    I blame my job for making me anti-social, I hate going places and having people ask me about city business.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hate to say it, but I have a gym membership and still don't cross train. Ha. Only go for the group training runs!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have a free gym membership through my college but I mainly use it for free weights and the stretching equipment. They have different sized foam rollers and massage balls that are really helpful for running and I like the ability to cross train with weights.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I belong! lol, I like the classes offered and weight training :) plus PEOPLE WATCHING

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm not a member of a gym because I prefer to exercise alone.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm also too cheap to have a membership to the gym. I have a punch card to the local rec center that I've had for 5 plus years for that occasional run on the treadmill when the snow is super deep. That's usually the only day I lift weights too :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I work at a physical therapy office, so I get to work out for free!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am a member at a gym, but haven't used it much lately. I have a broken foot, so that makes it hard! We also have to be members because my daughter swims at the gym we belong to.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I *am* a member of a gym for about 5 years now! I find running on a treadmill next to others very motivating and makes me run a little further or a little faster!

    ReplyDelete
  52. The ONLY reason I go to a gym is because my local Y is open at 5 a.m., is super-cheap, has an immaculate locker room & showers so I can work out or run before work and then get ready for work without going back home.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm not a member of a gym, I like working out for free.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Not a fan of gyms, but I live in an apt and take advantage of their gym...running at 5am means the treadmill many days unfortunately

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like to kill two birds with one stone, and lift weights in the teeny tiny weight room at the pool.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am not a member of a gym. Outside running or cycling, all the time. Zero strength training.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I built a gym in my garage thanks to craigslist. My body thanks me for the cross training days... or at least I think it does.

    1. I get a nearly free membership through my work.

  59. I do because...
    I don't have a treadmill or much of anything else at home.
    I like the classes offered.
    It's close by.
    It's really cheap for my family of three.
    Winters here can be brutal, sometimes eliminating outside walking/hiking/running.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Yeah, gyms. I just can't. So many reasons....besides the smells (farts, BO, perfume)...the icky lighting...the carpet that I am sure was never ever vacuumed or cleaned...the creepy man who would swim in my lane no matter how many were open...the idle chit chat (is this a social club?!?!?).
    I am thankful and consider myself blessed that I have my running and biking and don't get discouraged from heading out in the cold/wind/rain/heat.
    I do belong to a yoga studio that also has barre and boxing classes (and is the most immaculate place I've ever been to). So I get the cross training I need. But yeah...I'm with you on gyms.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love the gym! Here in the PNW, it rains a lot, so the gym is the place for me.

    ReplyDelete
  62. No to the gym... I want to, but I just can't.

  63. I pay for a gym and workout at hone /boggle

  64. Getting ex boyfriend back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. Am Maria 21yr from England, my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .

  65. Joined a gym at the urging of my teenager. Never though I'd like a treadmill but it's easy for planning and no worried about weather. It is always too hot though. Still love the trail best.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I belong to a gym for the cross training! Mainly because I'm not accountable enough to do that on my own, and classes solve that.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I really enjoy attending bootcamp class at my gym to cross train. I also like having the option to run on the treadmill even though I don't use it too often.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I go to boot camp at the local rec center for $3 per class but no membership to a gym!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am not a member of a gym currently but I would like to be! I love the classes.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yes, for weight lifting purposes (BodyPump). If I didn't do this in a group fitness class, I probably wouldn't do it.....

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm a member of the Y so if I don't go, I don't feel bad about paying my dues anyway because it helps kids programs. 99% of the time I go it's to swim, but I will pop in now and then just to take a shower if I am out running and don't want to go all the way back home!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm a 24 hour fitness member. I absolutely love the gym for my weight lifting workouts.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I am too cheap to belong to a gym. Just push me out the door and I will get a good workout in outside!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I don't belong to a gym either. I prefer to be outside exercising. I do have a treadmill in my basement that I resort to if it icy but prefer the great outdoors!

    ReplyDelete
  75. My workplace has a gym. Yay!!! I normally go about 3x a week for resistance training. I don't run on the treadmill - I prefer running outside. Confession, I haven't been to the gym in a few weeks because I've been super busy with work and I'm also taking a couple of classes. Not a great excuse, but it is true. I plan on going back regularly when this semester is over.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I am not a member of a gym because I prefer to exercise outdoors.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I have a community center pass, which I guess technically is a gym membership, but it's definitely not your stereotypical gym, and sometimes it has the equipment I want and sometimes it doesn't. It works for what I need, though. Hoping to have my own home gym in the future because I also hate driving there.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'm not a gym person...I prefer to exercise outdoors year round in Wisconsin. I can't imagine having an audience for it. Someone always feels the need to point out how red my face is. Why do people do that?!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I am not. Basically for all the reasons you listed. I have quite the home gym though!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I have a membership to the cheapest gym in the area - $10 per month. But I never go. I got it for when the weather is SUPER bad. But I figure if I don't want to run in it, then I probably shouldn't be driving in it either. So... yeah, I'll probably be canceling the membership.

    ReplyDelete
  81. yes I am. Mostly because drivers in Michigan in winter are pricks. I like living so find it helpful to have a place to run wherein I will not get hit by a large motorized vehicle. And, because running makes me poop and I like to have a bathroom close so I don't shat myself.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Gym membership for me - its for peace of mind knowing if I don't have time to run when its safe outside I can safely run inside. I can use weights that I have no way to store at home and machinery that pushes me to become stronger and better. I like having the flexibility and "safety net" that is the gym. I go at least 3 times a week, there is a pool, and I like the people I meet and learn from there.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm a member of a gym and my husband forces me to go with him at least once a week. I'm with you, I prefer to just run outside.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I used to love the gym when I was younger, but now I greatly prefer to work out at home (we have a weight set), or run, bike or hike outside. I also LOVE finding new workout videos on YouTube - so many options, you can never get bored.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I agree! BO, farts and perfume concoction...no thanks! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  86. I have a membership, but since it takes me half an hour to drive there (and this is the closest one to home) I do not go often. I do go on Sundays with my husband since after 24 years of marriage, apparently the gym with grocery shopping afterwards is considered a date.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I have a gym membership and use it for the strength classes & child care. Since I started strength training, it has helped tremendously with my running!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I'm a member of a gym because I like options. Like you, I prefer the great outdoors. However, I always need a back up plan.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I don't belong to a gym. I like to do all my running outside because it's free.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I have two gym memberships. One for the pool and one for the weight room. I don't like the weight room at the gym with the pool. It's way to crowded. Lifting heavy things is a great stress reliever for me....more so than any cardio

    ReplyDelete
  91. I have a boot camp membership, but I do a lot of "BodyFit by Amy" videos at home for strength training between runs. Replacing some runs with strength workouts got me out of my "only running" rut.

    ReplyDelete
  92. We are a paying member to our rec center but now I get it free, I became a lifeguard. Sometimes you just need to see some other four walls. We do have a treadmill and at times, I do use the child care to get the workout in, winning!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I belong to one of those $10/month gyms because I'm a big baby and hate to run outside if it's too hot or too cold! :)

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'm not a member of a gym for probably the same reasons you aren't: I'm cheap, mostly, and I don't like being around people.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I don't have a gym membership but I do use the gym in my apartment building occasionally. It's nice to have that option when it is raining...and it rains a lot here in the Pacific NW!

    ReplyDelete
  96. This is so awesome. I am currently not enrolled in a membership because this year has been pretty horrible since I lost my precious Nana. To be honest I am currently getting myself back on a jogging routine first and then I will re join a gym! starla.batesATyahoo.com

  97. I have a gym membership. i like to spin and use the weight machines.

    ReplyDelete
  98. i belong to the YMCA.. mostly for the pool!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I have a cheap gym membership only so I can run if its crazy icy out, and so I have someplace to shower when I lose power, which seems to happen at least once a winter.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm too self conscious to go to the gym so I'll do my exercising in the privacy of my own home!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I haven't belonged to a gym for about 6 years, mostly because I am too cheap, but also because of the convenience of working out at home. And I love being outside when I can!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I don't go. I want to be outside.
    I love your blog. I always laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  103. The fact that I spent money for a membership motivates me to get to the gym. I also run outside year round but I have become a fair weather friend as I get older.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'm not a member of a gym because I prefer to exercise alone.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Not a member of a gym. I have a treadmill at home and free weights so don't need a gym. Plus I am super cheap :)

    ReplyDelete
  106. I wish I could get a gym membership just for the winter. The outdoors is great until its -10*

    ReplyDelete
  107. Yes and no.

    I work at a college and part of the "perks" is that I can use the campus gym for free. I come to work in my workout gear and take my shower in the locker room. I used to run outside, but then... I got to be a bit of a wimp about the weather and worried about running in the wee hours alone. I drifted inside and ran the treadmill with a couple of heavy weights days mixed in, then I started having issues with my hip.

    Some physical therapy and rest from running later, I mostly have licked the hip issue (my left SI joint still gets a bit cranky and slightly stabby at times), I run about one day a week. I've sort of slid over to three days of heavy weights a week, because oddly, only running seemed to make my hip worse. I could throw a hundred pounds on my back and squat and it didn't seem to bother anything. Now I mostly look longingly at running blogs and try to keep a hand in with a mile or mile and a half of intervals every Thursday.

    But, hey, between doing Big Six and Stronglifts 5x5, I can now proudly squat 125 pounds for 5 sets of 5 reps and deadlift 175 for 5 reps on a good day!

    I don't grunt loudly or do that obnoxious thing where you deliberately drop weights, though.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I was a long time gym rat and loved it. I went to the classes and learned about form and function, but as life happens, scheduling conflicts occur, instructors leave, equipment breaks down. So I stopped paying and going. I now workout a few times a week with friend led bootcamps, run, and train in my garage. Getting the equipment to have a home gym was cheaper than a years membership and is always available.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Once a week at the gym on the treadmill for speedwork. Keeps me honest about pace!

    ReplyDelete
  110. I belong to a tiny family-run gym. Love it because a) showing up for my gym peeps keeps me accountable b) I don't have to think about programming my workout: if I show up and get through it, voila, I'm cross-trained c) found many sometimes-running partners there. My husband doesn't currently enjoy running, so it's great to find the getting-the-miles-in camaraderie elsewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  111. On and off as I can afford it. Would sure love one to help get through this winter's Boston Marathon training!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I've never been to the gym, but I prefer to run and olahraga2 ainnya like football and so on ..

    ReplyDelete
  113. I found a great new gym nearby! It's super clean, has a nice pool and best of all I pay 10$ a month! I get a great law enforcement discount. It does force me to do a little bit of cross training once in awhile!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I belong to a gym and use it 6 days a week. Train with a trainer 2x a week.

  115. I just started kick boxing a couple months ago and really love it. Although I have to say, everyone is always dressed so cute in their workout clothes. I need to check out what Dicks has!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Yes! Gotta have the childcare. It was the only way I could have ever done a marathon.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I go to the gym so that I can safely run in the early mornings. It keeps me consistent!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Living in FL, I loved doing outdoor activities (sprint triathlons) and decided that I hated the gym atmosphere. Recently, I moved several states north and joined a gym because it was summer and I needed childcare. At first, I did only spin classes (it's dark and not too social). What a surprise that I now enjoy the gym! I work hard in the classes, have an amazing indoor pool, and can be as social or unsocial as I want. It's nice to discover that you can redefine your workout self.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I am a member of a hit gym which is just a quick circuit of high interval training! I love it since it gives me a total body workout, otherwise I never know what to do besides run lol

    ReplyDelete
  120. I enjoy group exercise classes but my schedule doesn't allow for that much. I have a meager home gym and tons of DVDs that I use daily along with running outside.

  121. My husband and I have been married for about 6yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again. Dr.Unity is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact:

  122. Yes, I'm a member at my local YMCA, mostly for the discount on swimming lessons for my boys. As it seems like I'm always injured, I have been taking advantage of the stationary bikes.

  123. I'm a member of the YMCA but only work out there maybe once a month, in a good month!

  124. I haven't been a gym member for money and transportation reasons for a long time. Most of my running is done right out of my front door even though I really wish I could get out to the nice trails and off the shoulder of the road. I'd like to join a gym again someday, maybe when my daughter is in 1st grade and I have some me time again!

  125. I'm not a member of a gym, we live in a rural area, like you, I enjoy running outside all year.

  126. I'm not currently a member of a gym. I have been previously, but I didn't go for like 9 months so I cancelled it. I also prefer to run outside and hate the gym for all the reasons you listed (things that make you go "ewww").

  127. Yes, I try to plan to go the YMCA a couple of times a week, mainly for strength training. I tend not to do any strength training if left to my own devices, so I take a couple of classes at the Y. These classes are taught by the coolest 67-year old woman I know.
    If it is very cold or hot or windy outside, I also will go to the Y or the nearest rec center and run on the treadmill or the inside track.

  128. I love being outside too, but sometimes my home gym is nice!

  129. No gym for me either. My reasons: to save money I run outside (year round - in Iowa) and the classes at my local gym aren't offered at times that would work for my schedule.

  130. Why I always go to the gym - classes. TRX class. Spin class. All the classes. Great cross-training to enhance running performance.

  131. I'm too broke for a gym membership at the moment. I'd totally do yoga though.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I don't belong to a gym for all the reasons you state. I find that if I use up LOTS of willpower to go the gym, MAKE myself do it, I have absolutely none left over for the other things that I need to make myself do - run in the evenings when I'm tired, eat well, etc :). So...as it is I have just enough left over to sometimes make myself do core work on my living room floor occasionally.....but I run a LOT and I'm very happy with that.

  133. Excited my life is back My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years in October. The way we met wasn’t the best way since we both had relationships. We ended our relationships to be together (or so I thought we BOTH did). As soon as I ended up pregnant with our first baby, I find out he was cheating with his EX! My world went upside down. It was very hard for me since I was pregnant and hurt. Over the years I just kept forgiving him over and over again of not only multiple affairs, but of his accusations of me being unfaithful and disrespecting me. We now have 3 kids and I just completely felt neglected and felt low of myself. I had my own affair… It has not been easy for BOTH of us to overcome. Somehow over the last few weeks we have been working together to move on. We are now moving out of state. I love my husband and I am positive he loves me. I am going to try and show him this approach. Somehow we were already doing it! We have a better communication than we’ve had in years! We are learning how to speak calmly out feelings and concerns. It hasn’t been peachy, but I can see that we both are starting to respect eachother. We care for each other’s feelings. We have US a main priority. We aren’t taking counseling, but somehow we see that little by little we seem more comfortable with eachother. Sometimes we may notice how good it is going and may step back, but helping eachother out by holding and saying it’s ok to be happy again. I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger so i contacted Dr happy who help me to keep my marriage save and secure from other women am very happy today coz my husband love me more and more like ever before, we are living as one big family again bless Dr happy for what he did to me and my husband if you need help contact him too he is real and 100% guarantee ok so email him at : happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/

  135. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.

After i found him texting a coworker and questioned him, he said they were just friends but 3 wks later he told me he didnt love me anymore that he was in love with her and that i made him feel bad about himself and she didnt. He left home for 2 wks came home and left 2 wks later. Been gone for 3 1/2 months now. Hes been going to bars, calling women, lying like crazy, drinking like a fish and hasnt spoken to the kids the whole time hes been gone. His whole personality has changed. We believe he is going thru some sort of mid life crisis. Its crazy, he is acting like a person that we dont know anymore. Is it possible to get my marriage back. Because I know that he is going thru some crazy thing right now Im finding it very hard to let go. I still love him. How can I save my marriage and family when my husband is in the middle of a mid life crisis and wont listen to my or anyone else. We are so confused. i try to communicate with him but still hang off the phone on me,I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger and safe so going online one day on facebook, i saw a prayer point, and a website say if you need your ex back, save your marriage, and fight your husband from divorce. i was so very happy a hopeful again that i can get back with my husband after i saw this website so i read this testimony of this website on how he help save his marriage nd i was excited to give a try so i contacted him and give him all the reason why i need his help, and he assured me that with-6 good hours of his spell that my husband will come back home to me so i believe and trust him coz he was like a father to me also a man of his words so today am happy that my husband who has been away for 3 1/2 months now with his coworker is back home with apology plz you all should help me and thank Dr happy he really save my life and my marriage so email him if you need help also on happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/
