How far do you live from your gym?

I just canceled my membership at a small 24 hour key card place. I am considering re-joining my former gym which is much better equipped and has a hot tub, pool and is also open 24/7. I quit that gym when gas got so expensive because it is farther away. The drive isn’t that bad (11.6 miles) but it gets tedious and expensive.

How far is your gym from your house?

It’s in the lobby of my building. :slight_smile: So, 13 floors down.

Across the street.

I’m a firm believer that a short drive is a critical success factor in choosing a gym.

Who wants to go to the gym when it is a twenty minute drive away?

My new gym is 2 miles. The old one was .9 miles from home—I was concerned about the increase.

Mine is a bit over 2 miles, I usually ride my handbike.

About 6-7 miles I think, but I’m not really a member of the gym - I just use the indoor dragon boat paddling room for an hour twice a week. I haven’t signed up to use the rest of the facilities, since it’s too far away to be practical, but I’m addicted to paddling.

I could/should join my school gym, which is about a mile from my house, but right up the hill from the building I’m always in, but I’m very lazy and don’t want to climb that big hill in order to go work out! There’s also a gym 3 buildings (and one street corner) away, but I can’t afford it now.

The one I use to visit was 3 miles away,which I walked to.

My gym is 11 miles away and it really is the sole reason I don’t go as often as I should.

Small one in the center of the apartment complex, and the huge student rec center and fields about a mile away!

Mine is a little over 1 mile (not an option on the list).

Wasn’t sure if I should vote or not. I run on a rail trail that is around 2 miles from my home.

You left out 1 to 2 miles, which would have been my answer. I had to choose 2 to 5, but really I live about maybe 1.3 or 1.4 miles from my gym.

What is a handbike, as opposed to a regular bike?

3 wheeled recumbent pedaled with the arms.

It’s less than 2 miles to the YMCA I pay $25/month not to go to.

It takes about 5 minutes to get there, which involves freeway time. Gym is right near the library and kids’ music class, and some other good things.

The Bikram yoga studio where I work out is a couple of miles away.

How much do they charge if you do go? :smiley:

It’s 0.95 miles as the crow flies. By road, it is 2.26 miles (according to Google Earth).

It’s very convenient to have it so close. On saturday mornings I can wear my swim stuff to the gym, go to water class, and come home to change. Very nice.

Right in the apt. complex. About a 5 minute walk.
