    Default gym terms

    Hi,

    I would like to know how you call some of the things you do and have at a gym, you know the name of that equipment we walk or run at the gym ?, how do you call it? is the bicycle at the gym called bicycle too? and when we lift weight, how do you call that action? is work out a general name for doing all of this exercises? Can I say I "do" yoga? I do aerobics? pilates?
    Thank you so much for the help.

    , how do you call it?

    That is a treadmill


    is the bicycle at the gym called bicycle too?

    Usually called a stationary bicycle

    and when we lift weight, how do you call that action?

    There are several different terms here. A weight trainer can help you better. One term is bench pressing.

    is work out a general name for doing all of this exercises?

    To work out is a general term for exercising. As in: I work out regularly.

    A workout is used this way: I am going for a workout.


    Can I say I "do" yoga? I do aerobics? pilates?

    Yes.


    Thank you so much for the help.

    Welcome!
