I work out at a local branch of the YMCA, but I have a naturally slender build so competitive bodybuilding isn't a realistic endeavor for me, even if I wanted to try it. But I've learned firsthand that moderate weight (cybex/nautilus) workouts do me a lot of good, and I feel great right afterwards; all the day's tension just gets forced out of me and into the equipment. (Too bad I can't get moving early enough to do that before work- I'd have that great feeling all day! But as it is, it usually does last at least partway into the day after my workout).
