Hi,

, 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.:lol:

Welcome!
