Is not going to the gym every day okay?

Because honestly, it gets boring, esp every day. I'd rather bike on day, take a brisk walk or hike another, and then go to the gym and do the treadmill and weights on the 3rd days.

Is that ok for maintaining cuz the gym is just boring if that all you got cuz of the cold weather.

  • Do you go to Planet Fitness??!!! I do - it's just a sea of treadmills and ellipticals!! It can be boring and ours is filled with people who have no "gym ettiquette" at all. But, to answer your question, no - you do not need to go to the gym every day. Break it up a little. As long as you are doing "something", it's better than nothing!

  • If you're bored maybe try some classes....kickboxing, pilates, body sculpting...whatever. Breaks up the monotony

  • I don't go to the gym at all. I actually do video work outs in my living room, use my total gym, walk, or hike. I refuse to pay for a membership for something I can do myself.

  • I think you don't have a problem... The question is quite silly, sounds more like you want to receive praises for sticking to the budget! So, congrats, you are doing great!
    Gyms are more for people who enjoy the group classes, or like me, just to fight traffic and get to the office on time, since my gym is one floor up from where I work, and my commute is more than 30 miles!

    Keep it up! That's what I used to to when children were little.... Since I didn't work!

  • Thats not too bad. I'm used to paying triple that if I wanted to go to the gym. Don't feel guilty for wanting to change it up. If you do the same thing everyday, you will eventually get bored. Is there any other moms in the area that might want to join ya, even if its 3-4 times a week insead of every day?
