I also have access to an affordable gym, but never use it. So, I do things at home that I will actually do. I have a kettlebell (24 kg, I do Russian style swings), and a treadmill (like to do 5% grade at 3.2 mph). I've got a streak of 43 weeks of actually exercising, so I'm going to continue with that. Whatever works!

I work at a university and I have access to a wonderful health and sports facility but I never go because (and this is a bit embarrassing to admit) I find it intimidating to be 50 and overweight while surrounded by college athletes.
I bought a set of resistance bands and use that for strength training at home. I walk my dog for a mile or more everyday for cardio (and will be stepping that up shortly).

home - I have a great home gym with a treadmill, exercise bike, elliptical/EFX, dumbbells, and a mid-size universal gym... however recently a cable snapped on my universal gym, so now I've ordered replacements (x3) and I'm installing those. I bought it used originally, but it will be like a new unit when it's ready!
There's an inexpensive neighborhood gym nearby. Pretty meager shower facilities, but everything else is OK. Next trip here may do a month to month membership - good to get cardio and shoulder exercise at the same place.

Gym primarily. Getting PT for shoulder injury and have adapted the PT exercises to the available gym equipment. Then can do cardio to help with bicycling endurance, and, finally, as a treat - 10 min in sauna (all I can stand). It's also where I take my daily shower.
At home can do most of the shoulder stuff, ride my own bike, and walk. No sauna.
Home for some quick stuff Push up, Sit up, Jacks, Squats.
Anything else I would need to go to a Gym as I don't push myself to do it at home.
Personally I get really bored at a Gym. For last 5yrs I have been doing Martial Arts (Jiu-jitsu). Started off in a Japanese style then moved to BJJ. Since starting BJJ I have drop weight before joining Spark and increased my Cardio.

Gym. I do some work at home (or hotel room if situation dictates) but having a place whose sole singular purpose is exercise/fitness helps mitigate would-be distractions that I'd encounter at home like tv, phone call, computer, knock on the door, etc.
To each his own of course.
