Avoiding the Gym on the Weekend

Do You Go to the Gym on the Weekends?

After work, it's a given that I'll be at the gym. I'll even squeeze in a quick workout before meeting up with friends for dinner or happy hour plans. Besides wanting to keep a regular fitness schedule, I make the gym my postwork activity to avoid being there on the weekend. The gym is the last place where I want to be on my days off; when it comes to weekend fitness, I choose running, biking, or hiking outdoors. I also find that most gyms in my city are near office districts rather than residential neighborhoods. Commuting to the gym on a Saturday? No thank you!

Weekday gym sessions aren't convenient for everyone, but since the gym empties out on the weekend, that means no waiting for the treadmill. What's your gym schedule look like?

Yeah, occasionally I'll go. It's quieter.

I am a college student who attends classes 5 days a week. I try to work out 3 days out the week before classes for at least an hour. It doesn't make sense for me to drive to campus to work out on the weekends. I sometimes work out on Sundays but this consists of walking around my neighborhood.

I have more time on the weekend so my workouts are usually longer than during the week. Best time to workout if you ask me!

I will occassionaly but for the most part I try to get outside on the weekends. Since I can workout first thing in the morning on the weekends I like to take advantage of that and the cool weather and get outside. Plus without a strict time I have to be done, I can be flexible on how far or how long I go so I take advantage of that on my runs and bike rides on weekends.
