Distance from your house to the gym

Since moving house in February I am being much more disciplined with my gym attendance.
I use to have a 15 min walk to the gym but I now live 100m (exactly, i measured) from a Fitness First.

It has made things a lot easier and I am now a lot more involved in the training which has knocked on to the diet as well.

Wondering how far people have to travel to their gym?


ADDITIONAL: Also pop in your attendance per week if you care too.

I go to the gym 8 times a week (two days I go once in the morning for weights and afternoon for cardio).

    Was a 25 min drive or so, but rarely went directly from my house- probably about the same from then work though.

    If it was at 4am Sunday morning it would be a five minute drive.

    My gym-to-be is literally 30 yards up the road now.

    Varied over the years from as often as 10 times a week to once a week.

    I'd say 2, maybe 3 times on average (plus ice hockey on weekends).

    Weight intense 2x a week is perfect for me.  A third day for the namby-pampy arms/calves/abs stuff.

    From the corner of my house it's about 3m, from the kitchen/back door it's about 7m.

    Sometimes by the time i get to the power rack i'm already knackered from all the cardio

    That's metres, not miles

    No more than 5 mins walk away.  The closer it is, the better for me.

    About 5 mins drive at most points of the day.  Top of St George in Bristol to LA Gym off the roundabout.  Good bunch of lads!

    400m at most. Tis always nice to be able to walk there, helps with motivations of course.

    Ithink about four miles. I sometimes run there if have plenty of time and energy.

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    30 mins each way by bus.

    Used to be 50 mins each by car when I was in Manchester.

    Sometimes take a 2 hour train journey to train in an awesome powelifting gym in London.

    This is because I simply CANNOT train at somewhere like Fitness First, it's not for serious lifters, they won't take happily to heavy deadlifts, chalk and overhead lifting.

    I am happy to travel large distances to get the right gym/environment/people.

    For cardio, my gym is about 100 metres from my door.
    For weights, its about a 45-70min drive, depending on traffic and especially tractors.

    Most of my day is taken up by training at the moment, but I don't mind, I'm enjoying it.
