    Considering this is a fitness site, I am curious to see how many other slackers we have other than me. icon_twisted.gif

    I haven't set foot in a gym in over 15 months now. I got into a bit of a gym routine my freshman year of college when I had a ton of free time (first time i had ever really worked out). It was fun for me and I added some definition to my wiry frame. Then summer came and I went home, didn't get a gym membership and was happy. Sophomore year came and I lived off campus, farther from the gym, and I had way harder courses and a demanding part time job that zapped up my time. Didn't go to the gym once all school year.

    For the purposes of the thread, I have been happy without hitting the gym, and I'm very comfortable and content with my appearance as is. Is anyone else similar? I know not EVERYONE here is or wants to be an Adonis. At least that is the assumption I'm making. icon_wink.gif

    At the same time, I enjoyed my time in the gym when it was more convenient for me to go. I plan on starting a new routine this upcoming semester. No more annoying job, so why not replace it with cardio and lifting...

    So, what's your story?

    I've never been to a gym.

    The planet is my gym. I walk, run and cycle everywhere. I do push ups, crunches, squats, etc at home.

    I'm generally a very active person and eat well (and a lot). I'm happy with my body shape.

    Ah, good point which I stupidly omitted. I enjoy walking everywhere, especially in NYC, and I'm out and about much more than I am home, sitting still or watching TV. The occasional run is nice too.

    Just to clarify that I'm not a lazy couch potato who sits on his arse.

    I love going to the gym and working out and giving all the hot men extended eye contact and trying to see who holds my gaze so we can have some fun in the showers

    I go to the gym but don't use the free weights. I do mostly cardio, and throw in two machine circuits a week.

    Never been to...never interested in it, perhaps never will.
    I walk a lot, do house work...and other activities.
    Considering jogging, but the environment I live in is very polluted.
    I try my best to maintain a healthy diet(healthy vegetarian diet).

    I constantly exercise my mind, does that count?

    Absolutely, and so do I! My brain is jacked at this point.

    I've never owned a gym membership (Though for a short time in college I went to a gym like program)

    I do what I can on my own. Nothing special, just whatever I can find online that is challenging.

    Never been to a gym. They sound expensive, boring places to go.

    As a guy said above, the world`s my gym, with running, ruck-marching, walking, cycling, swimming, etc. all outdoors. Much more interesting.

    What weight training I do is at home with free weights.

    Not me for 4 months given a cervical herniation. I've actually only been in a gym, all in, total, about 14 months my entire life.

    Well I've never set foot in a paid gym (yet) but I consider working out a healthy hobby. I'd rather spend the evening doing that than watching TV.

    I go in waves of hating the gym and not minding it. Right now Im forcing myself to go but its the free one in my office - so I don't really have any excuses. I really prefer exercising at home - pushups, situps, and I walk everywhere which helps keep me lean. I walk by a big chain gym everyday and most guys do not look happy to be going. To each their own!

    I tried the gym once in my life, reminded me too much of high school. Didn't want the fungus thing ever again. And the smell, not good. I'll work and sweat outside. I'll take sunshine and sweat all day, forget the nasty gym. I am more flexible and all over toned too. I'm not built like Hercules but I got no regrets.

    I go to the gym, but almost entirely for the rock walls. I can generally spend as much time there as my partner for the day can tolerate. icon_smile.gif There is a complete gym attached to it, but I only use body-weight exercises like the pull-up boards and leg lifts. I can't remember the last time I used a weight machine or free weight. I'm sort of interested, but not sure yet.

    And there's the whole outdoor gym thing.

    Can't keep up with studies and gym as well, unless I'm willing to fall asleep in lectures. Tires me out too much. Gymmed last year almost everyday though.

    I guess I am going to have to join this club, but it's not voluntarily. My gym going took a hit right before Christmas when I broke my left elbow and dislocated my left wrist. Got through the recovery and was just scheduling to move the gym back to 3 times a week when, exactly one week ago today, I was at the school getting computer labs ready for the first day of classes, I did a dumb-ass thing while trying to hang a picture. I was standing in a chair and couldn't reach exactly where I needed so I stepped up on to the counter top that was screwed into the wall. It worked at one end, but on the other end, well, I heard a crack and before I knew it the entire counter, about 5 computers and came crashing down to the floor along with me. I broke bones in my foot/ankle and have a spiral fracture going up my leg. It was pretty shattered.

    This is the worst injury I have ever had to face in my life.

    So the gym is on hold for a while. I am devastated.

    I'm so sorry about that! I wish you a fast recovery.

    Don't be silly. If anything it qualifies you extra. icon_smile.gif


    Thank you.

    Oh and I have received a message about this passive/aggressive line. I apologize for being passive/aggressive. It wasn't my intent.

    So, I will say this, There may be some who feel this disqualifies me, and that's fine. It doesn't mean I am going to leave. We all know by now, I am one of the trolls that don't die. Hahahahahahah!!!!
