Home usually.

Although I like to follow bodybuilding, my own training more aerobic. The strength training I do, I usually do with dipping/chinning apparatus I have at home, and sandbags, usually working a circuit with intervals of 40 seconds on/ 20 seconds off.

I am lucky enough to train in gyms all over the world all the time, as I work for a major British intercontinental airline.Over the last 50 years I have been flying I have trained in many weird and wonderful gyms both here and abroad. When I am at home I train in my own gym which my wife and I designed, it was made in Estonia and it was shipped over to us and erected by a specialist company. We had to buy a piece of our neibours land to be able to fit it in, or it would have completely dominated our garden. A large concrete base was laid and the specially reinforced wooden floor put down. The entire building is made of wood, with a small toilet, kitchen area and then the gym in three separate areas. Area one has a Power Plate, cross trainer, special running trainer, Versa Climber, Hammer Strength assisted dip/chin machine, plate loaded rowing machine, hyper extension bench, hanging punch bag and kettle bells. Area two has a Lat pull down machine,squat machine and seated calf bench. Area three, is the main area, with a multi exercise machine, leg curl/extension machine, standing calf machine, leg press, Max Rack 3D power rack, Scott arm cul bench, two adjustable flat/incline benches, sissy squat bench, small seated arm curl bench and barbell rack from 10 to 55 kilos and  dumbbell racks, Dumbbells from 2 to 40 kilos.
When I was young I loved training with a partner in my friend Len Sells gym in London and then in Reg Parks gym in South Africa, the buzz and the friendly competitive banter and exuberance.  But over the years I have come to prefer training by myself in my own gym. Though I really appreciate having the opportunity of going to gyms round the world, training, trying out new equipment, and talking to people who love the sport. One thing that I have noticed over the years is that the absolute very best gyms I have trained do not have music blaring out ------- in an OAP's opinion you go to the gym to concentrate on what your doing, not be deafened by music blaring out, or spend half the work out adjusting your play list on your phone, or taking calls.
