For me what I like most about going to the gym other than gaining muscle and keeping my body healthy is it gives me the energy and motivates me to do my homework during the day, it keeps me away from laziness and procrastination.
so yeah I love going to the gym.

Hi. I have qustion about Task 1
7. The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning...
When a choose FALSE - answer wrong.
But. In the text
Easy to access – we're open 24/7, we never close. ?

Hello Kotan6,

If the gym is open '24/7', this means it is open 24 hours per day 7 days a week. This means it never closes.

Therefore the gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning, which means the correct answer is True.

Does that make sense?

All the best,

Sometimes we are surprized by content as we have no idea what is talking about. In the capital city where I live, there rarely are a gym that is open like 24/7, so at the first glance, we consider it as a false sentence. Because we've already know there is no gym that is open after 12:00 PM.
It has happend to me a billion of times. :D

I love chest days and arms days, those days are the ones a enjoyed the most, leg days are the least favorite because is when i get really tired

The best part of going to the gym is maintaining healthy myself and fitness. But, to choose a membership, I consider the treatment with the client and the equipment they have. Also, I like seeing some programs that include dancing.

What would you like most in a gym?

I would like to use different equipment and I love to fit my body and brain. I did gym when I was 24years old and at that time my weight was 40kg and I was thinking about the gym and I went to the gym or done hard work then I was getting fit body wth in 6month,

The thing I like most about a gym is that I want to gain muscle in my body. Therefore, I work hand doing exercises on equipment to accomplish that goal.

What I like about being able to train in a gym is that you become more motivated when you see other people working hard and trying their best to make a change to their bodies .

I a gym I mostly like that I can work out on my own at any time. I can also switch off from my parental leave and do something good for my body. My gym is very similar to the gym described in this text. The most practical point here is that the gym is open 24/7 and they also have live courses like zumba, six pack training, yoga or pilates.

I don't like to do exercise in gym. I likes to do yoga in studio. Where I can listen to music while doing yoga and its calm me down. Yoga also cure my back pain that I had for sometimes. I think everyone should do yoga to stay healthy.

Yes, yoga is one of the best physical therapy to relieve pain, especially in the low back, neck, and shoulders, it helps to decrease muscle stiffness and improve your flexibility.
Many psychological specialists recommend doing yoga to make you relax and clear your thoughts.

Most of all I like that I can do my training on my own, without an instructor and I also like that I can come there whenever I want.

what i like at that fitness center is opened around the o'clock that offer more chance to coordinate between our work time and training time this is good to practice commitments

I could consider 3 main points: 1. the instructor needs to be nearby because I feel confident and stimulated; 2. relation benefits and costs must be positive, and to have quality with a good price, and finally 3. it is important modern equipment.

It's really important for me to have a trainer to show me exercises for reaching my goals.
I find usully there to many people in the most of gym ;)

I care mostly about the atmosphere of gym and the vibes in the area, besides the decoration and the light system not just the equipment and the staff .

What would you like most in a gym? about this question i would like to say its very important for me to have a trainer to do the exercises and also its very important to have a nutrition plan to reach my goals.

why I like to go to the gym is convenient, clean and that have lots of equipment and expert instructors. Otherwise, I have expert body doctors and new opportunities to develop the community and myself. That is why I choose the gym.

What I would like the most in gym is an instructor who would be patient with you , that can't put you so much pressure and gives you exercises according to your metabolism.

I would like to be clean and smell nice and maybe training, nutrition classes which are included in monthly fee.

Firstly gym offers assessment plans at no cost with a training plan, which is the most important step before starting the gym. Secondly, the membership includes sessions from expert private trainers, specialized classes, and nutrition classes. And lastly, it is open 24/7 and has no cancellation charges for ending a membership.

Hello ,
I can't see the opening time in the flyer Best body fitness regarding the question below:
7. The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning.
Best wishes.

Hi Momocompanyman,

In the 'It's so EASY' section, it says 'we're open 24/7, we never close'. So, the gym is open at that time.

Best wishes to you as well :)

Hi dmk.od and all,

I just wanted to explain more to try to help you see why the correct answer is true :)

These two sentences do not mean the same thing:
1. The gym OPENS at 4 o'clock.
2. The gym IS OPEN at 4 o'clock.

Sentence 1 means the gym STARTS to be open at that time. It means that before 4 o'clock, it is closed.

Sentence 2 is a state, not an action. It means that at 4 o'clock, the gym is open, not closed. But it doesn't mean that it STARTED to be open at 4 o'clock. It does not tell us what time the gym started to be open.

To put it another way, for example, if a shop OPENS at 9:00 (i.e., it starts doing business at that time), then it IS OPEN at 9:01, 9:02, 10:00 and every moment until the closing time.

So when question 7 says "The gym is open at 4 o'clock", it is indeed true (because the poster says "we're open 24/7, we never close"). The question is asking whether at that time, the gym is open or closed. It's not asking about the opening time.

I hope that helps.

What I like most about a gym is that it offers people convenient terms for working out in any weather condition for a reasonable fee.

The gym should open 24/7. It's have a good instructor. Not wait in the gym. Have nutrition plan.

I would prefer 24/7 gyms because I can access it any time! And I'll not be thinking that there is a closing time and I'm in a hurry to finish my studies and go the gym.

What do you like most about a gym? I love the gym atmosphere, but what I like the most is the post-workout feel.
The most I like at the gym is leg machines and exercise. As a volleyball player jumping is so important and obviously these parts of the body need training. Once you start to see the result, you consider the effort are worth.
Thanks. I understand. At first, I misunderstood that sentence means the gym' opening time. Thanks for your kind answer.
Let's me ask a question because you told you were lazy. At the task 1, I don't know why no.7 is True. I can't find any information in the text to realize that the gym open from 4 o'clock.

Hello uncle choi,

I hope no-one has told you that you are lazy!

 

The questions does not say that the gym is open from 4, but is open at 4.

In the text it states that the gym is open 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week), which means that it never closes. Therefore it must be open at 4.

I am a house wife. I am also full time worker. So, I did not have time to go to the gym. However, if I feel tired and stress, I do some yoga exercise. On the other hand, I have a small garden with nearly a hundred of rose and orchid plants. I am always busy but feel cool for gardening. After I retire from work, I want to go to the gym.
I would like most in the gym is the quick disponibility of the equipments as I wouldn't stay long wait to get one. Another important thing is the leading by an expert in order not to get lost
I would like most in a gym the equipment that it has, and also the dance room I wish I could danced well, but is for that reason I would like the dance room of the gym. If I learn how to dance I will be glad.
Actually,I have not been to gym.So I don't know anything. But I knew about gym because of you.I wanna go to the gym at least one time ome day.
I tried a year ago to go to the gym. I picked the one that was near my dormitory. I visited it only 6 or 8 times over the month. I was a little bit anxious about exercising with other people, so I visited it only when I was with a friend. I want to go to the gym in the future and exercise with a help of an instructor. but for now I need to find a job to pay for it
