To have better physical fitness and to reduce the already acquired body, I think Gym is the best place. By going to the Gym and perform there, we can keep our weight and shape can be kept under control.
We have to spend money to be a member in a gym and follow a diet pattern which will be different from our regular lifestyle. If we are not practicing or if we give a gap of a few days, we suffer from body aches. Only the body will take the shape, it will not have any impact on mind.
Yoga is better than gym. Mental fitness will over take the physical fitness through yoga.

Even this challenging situation would ease
I like to do standard exercises at home instead. I tell you what I enjoy the most is that if I've the company of the like-minded people who like to walk on foot, I prefer to walk with them and cover the distance of 15-20 k.m. or more while talking each other, passing by the river or lake or hill or desert or fields or orchard- watching natural beauty by a close distance is always an amazing experience.
Gyms focus on physical exertion by using muscles and sweating to use the extra energy available due to consuming more food and less physical work. They have developed specific workouts to focus on specific muscles.
Yoga focuses on the flexibility and easy stretch ability of the joints mainly. This helps to help strengthen the nerves and nerve centres and also the inner organs and inner muscles. Yoga prevents fat and flab formation. It does not focus on sweating.
Yoga ultimately aims to awaken and straighten the spiritual power route or Kundalini so that humans get the 'inward sight' which our ancient Rishis gained after doing Yoga and Tapas or severe meditation.
I am not a fashion or physical freak and hence do not go to gyms. Some stretching actions I do for comfort and remove laziness or ennui are similar to certain yoga postures . That is all about my interest and involvement in Yoga.
