Class debate
We all know that exercising twice a week is a healthy habit. However, there are many different ways to exercise. Some people, like Suzanne, like going to the gym. Others, like Matthew, prefer team sports such as basketball or football. Where do you stand? Do you like going to the gym and exercising by yourself, or do you prefer playing team sports? Use the vocabulary and the sentences below to discuss this topic in class.

Mosts gyms are open all day. This makes it easier to adapt exercise to your schedule

Going to the gym is boring. On the other hand, playing team sports is competitive and fun.

I prefer team sports because the gym is a little boring and in the team sports you have a lot of fun and you have to think in a strategy and then perform it. But really, that I prefer and I love are xtreme sports, like skateboarding, snowboarding, etc.

I prefer doing team sports, because is more interesting and more funny. If you go to the gym you are alone, but if you play team sports you are with other people and you can enjoy more.

I prefer team sports, but I don't mind go to the gym some time with a friend. I think that team sports are the best because they are more funny and there are diferents types of sports, in the gym, you can only do sports with machines. I prefer sports team because is a collective activitie and when I'am alone it's more boring.
I love swimming, athletic and tennis, but the only sport that I do is to swim.

I prefer team sports, and you think of the comrades.
There are also very competitive and you have a good play, enjoy.
However, in the gym, go alone and do only, certain activities and exercises are not comparable to a sport.
I have to think about a strategy and I have a great time with my friends.

I prefer team sports, because I think the team sports are very funnier than make exercise in the gym. The gym is very boring because you can't be competitive and meet with your friends to past a great time. The team sports are important to meet some people, learn to respect your trainer and your teammates, and if you have a problem the others teammates can help you. The team sports are genial.

I prefer gym, becaus there I can say when I need to stop, or when i can do more. And I prefer listening to my mp3 player until i'm doing the activities,but if I do team sports with my friends friends I can't do this. I like specially do gymnastic sports, aerobic o something like this. I like team sports too, but that's my preference.
