How many of you go to the gym on a regular basis?

What's your routine while you're there?

I try to go everyday but I don't always make it.

When I'm there I do about 15 minutes on the elliptical. (That's about all I can handle) And then I move on to my abs workout. That's pretty much what I spend most of my time on. And I'm planning on doing a lot more leg workouts to tone my thighs.

I don't go to one yet, but after I deliver I'm definately going to start. There is a place on post where you can work out for free and they have a whole area set up for kids to play. So I'm hoping Grayson will cooperate and let me get a workout in a couple times a week.

I basically just run and do pushups. I don't really go to the gym, but I'm kinda wanting to now with the cold.

I would love to go to the gym but becuz we're at the Academy/Prep school, we get 2nd pick on equipment and they dont allow kids so I dont go. When I get to NE I'll go since they have a kids area and I usually like to run and do light weight lifting

Agh. I hate working out in the kid friendly area on base. I want to hit the weight room, but I have to stick with the bikes and crap because that's the only area that the midget is allowed in.

Obviously can't do anything right now. I like the weight machines (legs especially) and the elliptical.

I haven't gone to the gym in a while. We have a treadmill at home and I love doing workout videos. It's easier for me to workout while kids are in school and baby is sleeping then to go to the gym.

According to Wikipedia, "P90X, or Power 90 Extreme, is a home exercise system developed by Tony Horton in conjunction with Beachbody, which aims for an improved physique in 90 days through rigorous interval training. The program emphasizes full-body fitness, and consists of cardiovascular, strength training, and stretching exercises divided into three 30-day phases, combined with a nutrition and optional supplementation plan."

According to me, P90X is a work out video that is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. Its very expensive but Luke baught it for himself when he was in Iraq and can't do it anymore cuz he's on profile for his back. So now I do it! It is a very intense work out but it works for me. I say "it works for me" because I don't believe every work out it suited to show results for every individual. If you want to get into it, PM me and we can talk if you have questions!

I'm looking into going to the gym. Our apartment complex has one and I'm looking for a partner to go to the gyms on base with! {STEPH!!! HINT, HINT!! haha} But I do get my heartbeat up for a half an hour when I take Bear for a walk everyday... so, I'm getting something in.

I go to the gym 5-6 times a week. We have a fitness center at our apartment complex and I either go there or one on post with a friend. I also do p90x in my apartment. I'm currently training for a half marathon... so I've left most of my p90x behind for he next 2 months so that I can focus on running. I currently run between 3-5 miles 3 days a week and each saturday I do a long run... this weeks is 7 miles. In addition to my running I do some toning with weights. On my non-running days, I keep it light and do about 30 minutes of walking and elliptical... just to fend of the soreness. Oh! And killer abs M/W/F Smile
