    who here works out or goes to the gym on a regular basis? if so, which gym do you go to?

    i guess now would be a good time to work out seeing how it\'s getting close to summer B)

    here\'s a pic of me doing my arm curls at the gym:

    I used to work out a little a home, running and abs in the past. Haven\'t for a while. I just started working out again last month, but tough to find the time. I go to Fitness world because it\'s close to work so I can go at lunch time and they have multiple locations. They\'re okay but not great. I only go because it\'s near work so I can duck out a lunch time. If I had to drive to go a gym or it\'s not super convienent, I\'m afraid I just wouldn\'t go.

    I really depends on what you like doing... fitness classes, working with weights. Me, I like the classes and also running on the tread mills.

    see i\'ve been so busy that i\'ve been working out in the morning before i go to work.....i find it easier that way and more motivating

    but i do agree it depends on what you are doing....i prefer to go to classes, but then again, it\'s classes that i enjoy....kickboxing, hip hop, strippersize, lol.

    if the class is boring, then i won\'t go to them and i get bored easily...and if the instructor sucks and is boring

    YES Babyblues, it is tough to find a good instructor which makes all the difference. I know lots of people work out in the morning and it is a good way of getting your workout done but I am so not a morning person - it\'s all I can do to get my butt out of bed and to work on time! LOL

    see i\'m too tired at night, although i am a night owl, lol.

    i do workout at night though, it just depends on whether i\'m doing a class at night or not. if i work out inthe morning, it\'s at home and what not.

    plus i find if i get into a routine in the morning than i\'m ok....like right now i\'m into a routine of doing a 30-45 min hardcore workout inthe morning so it\'s not too bad......plus i\'m ok for getting up at 6:30am right now for that.

    I\'ve had too many experiences with bad instructors for classes that i\'m really picky, especially with classes like kickboxing which should be focusing on form not speed.

    I\'m into doing some fun classes now though, like strippersize and all that.....then again that also deals with a good instructor who has a good personality to be able to really get everyone motivated

    ya i have a pass at \"fitcity\" and got tired of working out at the community centre b/c my gf\'s and i couldn\'t work out there without some sleezy guys trying to chat with us.....ummm working out, don\'t wanna chat with a sweaty guy, lol..

    plus fitcity wasn\'t all \"so you gonna buy?????\" they were really nice, and my package has unlimited tanning as well so it\'s good when i feel like jumping in the tanning booth

    I go to Fit Xpress on Commercial and 1st in Vancouver. I love it becuase it\'s 24 hours plus I do the :unsure: tanning... I know it\'s bad but I hate looking pale!!!

    My gym is super cheap. it\'s $24.99 a month and you can add unlimited tanning for an extra $20 a month.

    The only setback..well not for me..heheh..is that it\'s mostly guys that go to my gym but they are ususally all downstairs using the weights. the cardio machines are upstairs.

    I should go 4 days but usually only go 3 times a week.

    Fitness World isn\'t bad either, I use to go to the one in Richmond. They just extended their gym, and they have an upstairs area just for women. It was great there, unfortunately i am not the \"Working out\" kinda gal, so i barely went.

    I was going to the gym since january with my boyfriend but for the last 2 months we haven't gone.. the weather is just too nice and the gym is just too hot.

    I notice that when i stop going i actually loose weight.. and i don't think it's muscle that i'm loosing. I think it's just me.. or it could be because i'm less hungry when i don't go to the gym.. i dunno.. is anyone else like this???

    it probably is muscle => fat? are your arms and legs and stuff less firm?...hmm maybe u shoudl find another gym if you find it too hot? when i'm at the gym its always nice and a/c..its like colder in the gym than outside.

    Hey Guys,

    I joined fitness world in June and have been going since. I go to the one on Broadway (the new facility). It snot bad there, but I find it too pricey. Can anyone recommend any other gym facility around downtown Vancouver. I like doing the classes

    you really only have a few other choices and i'm not sure how competative their rates will be..... try the YMCA (on burrard close to the IGA) or the bentall centre athletic club (located at Bentall 4) on dunsmir.

    There's also fitcity right next to the BCIT campus on seymour.. i hope that helps!! :wavespin:
