    Personally, I prefer working out at home. My 1 year old won't let me go to the gym in the day and my only free time is 11PM onward. There's no gym near my house and going out in that time is not really encouraging. I have an all in one bench press/lat pulldown at home and some dumbbells with plates. It motivates me much more since I can just go to my gym room and do my workout.

    The only downside is the equipment, I only have the bare minimum equipment. So, the exercise that I can do is limited. Tho, I always use some creative way to do the exercise that needs a certain equipment. You could say that I use a different variation for that exercise. For example since I dont have a tricep pushdown machine, I use the lat pulldown to do my pushdown with the lat pulldown bar. I also use that do some facepull, biceps, etc. There's so much you can do with very little equipment or even no equipment at all.

    For me, I prefer working out in the gym because I have free time to do it. plus they have too many good equipment, to use. but the very best reason is the companion. they give me Encouraging to keep up in my exercise plus I don't really feel the time to .working out alone is very hard and Makes me lazy

    I am the opposite to @zezo. I love working out at home. Might be because I live alone so I can actually do it at any time of the day when I'm free without interruption anyone. That way I don't lose time on taking a bus. Also for me working at home is more freedom. Literally, you can do any workout, there are hundreds of options. You don't need 10 machines, just a laptop, and a good internet connection. And maybe a set of weights.

    What I do is go on Youtube and make playlists divided by subject (i.e. cardio, target workouts, yoga, and pilates). Then when I am working out I can pick which workout to do. That gives me flexibility. You never even need to do the same workout twice. I've done dance cardio, zumba, yoga, pilates, workouts for specific muscle groups, etc. All I keep as the equipment is a set of small weights and a Theraband for stretching at the end. I've done that for years and never gotten bored. Every once in a while you can go for a walk or run when the weather is good.
