    I've voted, even though I don't 'go' to a gym, but use my own home 'gym' such as it is...and it's to keep fit and stay healthy as much as possible.

    I'm in the same boat. I feel weird if I don't go to the gym. MY girlfriend told me I was obsessed when we went on vacation and I complained that the resort didn't have a decent weight room.

    You want a weight room and they usually want something different. Just because you like to do something doesn't mean your obsessed. If this is the case women are obsessed with shoes.

    No which would you rather have 25 different pairs of shoes or a healthy body???

    IMHO I'll leave the shoes at the store.
