I have a gym in my basement and I love it.

I prefer a home gym just because I don’t like to go to a place with people who use human growth hormones lol

I would prefer a home gym because I’m a little self conscious about myself because I’m scrawny. I have no choice though because the gym has so much that I couldnt afford.

On the rare days I do work out, I follow a timed routine, so I wouldn’t want to have to wait for someone to finish using the equipment I need. So, home.

Also, gyms are the worlds best place to pick up WAYTOOMANY germs. End of story.

@ delirium- true, but the opposite sex as well…

delirium's avatar

But never the right Kind of the opposite sex. Muscleheads don’t appeal to me. But meeting men who are sitting at a coffee shop reading kafka… Mmmmmmm. Or men in libraries who are just perusing to enjoy themselves. Downright delicious.

To each their own. I would look for women in coffee shops and libraries. Matter of fact, I had a dream that I meet my “dream” (lol) girl at a book store. I like women who work out in gyms to keep fit as well though.

crackerjack's avatar

fit is one thing, overly muscular is another lol

delirium's avatar

I just…. don’t care what a person looks like, in that way. And I find the gym crowd to be pretentious and annoying. Its better to meet people who actually go out and Do things, not pay money to fake it.

crackerjack's avatar

delirium, I feel the same way, I don’t look for girls in gyms, but in classes, or at places with mutual friends.

If You are lazy,the best solution is local gym,because You can’t drive Yourself to work out at home.

local gym for some eye candy

I prefer the gym membership because it winds up giving me a lot more variety of machines and exercises, higher quality equipment, and lower price overall.
