Without a doubt, sports!! Gymming gets boring after a while. If there's no target/goal in mind I give up so easily. I see it this way: gymming is monotonous. If you like a fixed routine you'd probably prefer the gym? I do sports for the fun, but it sucks when you meet waaaay competitive people while playing for leisure.

gymming doesn't have to be boring, especially if you're continually upping your rep range, set number or the intensity of your workout. imo, sports builds overall fitness but gymming definitely helps you isolate your muscles and gain greater strength and endurance than most sports can offer :) all in all, a mixture of both types are the best hehe

Yeah you sound like a professional gymmer! Haha, gymming can be challenging but I don't really fancy the aches that come after that! I like to feel all worked out and somehow working out in the gym doesn't appeal as much to me as say, going for a fun. But yes gymming can definitely be a crazy workout but I guess it's just not for me. But yeah, I agree that a mixture of both would be perfect. :)

HAHA crystal you sound like a pro! Do you use our school gym? There's quite a lot of things you can use there actually, don't have to limit your workout to your home :)

@Christabel: I agree with you though, Gymming is slow and monotonous. It's not about upping one's rep or anything - while I do focus when I gym I just find it too repetitive for me. At least running outdoors lets me check out the moving scenery :)

I run like from my house to the park and back but there's not much scenery. I wish the beach was closer to me so I could run there. :S

I remember how our school always made us go to ECP for our 2.4km run lol. But yeah I'd rather run with scenery than run in the gym or on the boring school track.
