Hello, I agree that it depends on what you do in gym? swimming is also a good exercise.

Swimming as exercise
I am 67. I have been swimming a mile 3 or more times a week for a few years. It takes me an hour., and I really enjoy it The muscles in my arms have improved and my gut, which used to be flabby, has hardened up, but my physique remains unchanged. After reading through this thread, I have gone out and bought a set of resistance bands. I intend to continue my swimming while I use them.

BTW. Johnny Straws, a well known trainer, is selling the bands for $10, plus $9.95 shipping

Swimming, jogging, walking, running , you don't need much else to lose weight. usually gym memberships have pools so you can do either or both. Swimming is the better cardio than running and includes lower and upper body,so its great for cutting fat.

I think it depends on what you would favor. If you join a gym, they will generally set you up a program of exercises to do.
But I'm going for swimming. Cause of, it's all you must require, and it's reasonable and a lot more fun. Swimming, walking, jogging, running on the point, you don't need much else to lose weight.
