First, I hate gyms, but at my age my doctor told me to join a gym. There's several gyms near my office in downtown Cleveland. I chose Cleveland State Rec., I no longer exercise at Cleveland State Rec., it's a racist place to exercise & the gossip is childish. I couldn't stand the young college kids childish behavior or the way the Rec. was being operated. I tried two other gyms near my office & I didn't like them either. Cleveland State Rec. are filled with young white & black bisexual men who gossip about other people in the gym & gossip about other men & judging his body size & workout routine. I was in the locker room at Cleveland State Rec. & I heard young white men & black men cracking jokes about somebody working out & his body shape. I'm thinking, that guy is workout for his health not to be accepted by some bisexual cult that workout to help further hide the fact that they're living in the closet & to be accepted. Women check out other women. On several different occasions money came up missing from my wallet & another friend of mine also had the same problem. White's blame it on blacks & blacks blame it on blacks & I really think it's the young white kids goofing off, it may even be staff for all I now. My doctor told me it would be a good idea to join a gym. Forget that I brought exercise equipment & put it in the basement. I have to admit, I recently visited Akron University Rec. & found it to be a very good gym, a lot better than Cleveland State Rec.. If you wanna join a gym build one in your basement. Stay away from the college gyms & the brats!

Lol I don't do gyms, i didn't see the point paying £30 a month to exercise with other people around me, i just brought a bike to go touring and exercising frequently, its a lot cheaper for me.

I don't go to the gym anymore either. I went a lot last year to tone up for a vacation and get my bikini body on. But now I just go for evening walks. The gym environment is quite motivating, but I prefer working out on my own. I also have kickboxing videos that I use on occasion. Good luck finding a good gym, Hercules. But if you don't want to join a gym, find a park with a nice walking trail and go on walks for 30-45 minutes every day. Walking and jogging are very good and easy ways to get a cardio workout. Also, workout videos are fun. Kind of repetitive but the instructors are usually very motivating.

If you need any more suggestions, feel free to ask.

More gym drama! I'm leaving the office & one of my buddies & I were joking about the gym & she told me about a male friend of hers, that's a bisexual, that made a pass at another man in the gym. Of course the heterosexual male flipped out so the bisexual was scared & embarrassed to be around this guy. So the bisexual guy told all his friends that the heterosexual guy was a trouble maker. So months later the bisexual guy got one of his girlfriends to go to staff & act like the heterosexual guy was sexually harassing her. Of course how can he prove he wasn't? This was all a joke to the women & let my buddy tell it, her girlfriends, that's in a sorority, did this before to other guys in the gym & in the work environment. I thought that was pretty pathetic but I laughed it up. She's cool so I know she want do anything like that in our office. But that's too much drama for someone that's just trying to workout.

Thanks Transition & Jubilant Sleep. Jubilant Sleep I think walks are very nice, but videos & personal trainers & instructors are just trying to use you to sell themselves, not all of them but some do. I find a lot of instructors & personal trainers will sell you on healthy diets & they want you to worship their bodies, but they want tell you about all the enhancement drugs they take. They make it sound like it's all from a proper diet & exercise, their exercise they want you to follow & tell everyone else so they can make money. I don't need anyone to tell me how to eat a salad & my doctor is the best instructor because nothing motivates you like dying from health issues.

I seldom go to gyms for numerous reasons. First, because I don't want to rely on a gym to be healthy and athletic. Two, I prefer to be outside for the most part. Overall, I workout at home or outdoors and I absolutely love it.

If you really want to see results try workout videos like Jillian Michaels, Insanity and p90X. They worked for me. :)

It seems like one gym would be full of racist, and the black gym would be full of people with jealousy issues one way or another, the same thing that comes from racism. The only people nobody seems to hate on are the overweight members. Nobody bothers them too much, when in actuality, they need the most tips. However, the ones I see getting all the pointers and tips from the weight trainers, who happen to be mostly males, are the women who are already in good shape.

After working out in the gym at my old job during work hours, I've seen a little bit of everything. When I tried to find an evening gym, I could see half the bs just doing the walk-throughs...and I'd walk right out. So I never did join an evening gym, except one. And that one had those same issues I was mentioning for the most part, plus they had all these muscle men trainers trying to keep the women away from me...which is probably a similar scenario in most gyms. Anyway, I got tired of that crap, and I kept using my home gym, the gym that got me in shape in the first place.

I like what you had to say because I find what you stated to be very much the true. I never struggled with my weight, but I wouldn't have a problem working out with a woman that's a plus size, if she's comfortable with her self inside. Some women that's a plus size struggle & give up because they don't receive enough support. People who struggle with losing weight beat themselves up inside to look a certain way to be accepted, but it's suppose to start from the inside. I don't like it when people make fun of plus size women. I do find that men will zero in on the women that appear to be physically fit to workout with. I really don't understand why certain men would try to keep women they're not dating from speaking to you or any other men in the gym.
