你喜欢运动或是健身吗? (Do you like to exercise or workout?) 你喜欢运动或是健身吗?  Nǐ xǐhuān yùndòng huò shì jiànshēn ma? (Do you like to exercise or workout?)


运动 Yùndòng (to exercise // [Sports] sports; athletics; exercise) => when using "运动" ,people would think more like "ball-related sports, jogging, yoga...etc"  => but 健身 can still count as a kind of "exercise" though.

健身 jiànshēn (to workout // physical exercise;gymnastics for fitness) => when using "健身", people would think more like "weight lifting, resistance training...things for building a physique "


我很喜欢健身,但我不太喜欢运动 D: Wǒ hěn xǐhuān jiànshēn, dàn wǒ bù tài xǐhuān yùndòng D:
你也可以说,我讨厌运动! Nǐ yě kěyǐ shuō, wǒ tǎoyàn yùndòng!
但是我很喜欢重训, Dànshì wǒ hěn xǐhuān zhòng xùn,
健身是我生活中的一大部分。 jiànshēn shì wǒ shēnghuó zhōng de yī dà bùfèn.


我一个星期运动五到六次。 Wǒ yīgè xīngqí yùndòng wǔ dào liù cì.   (I workout/exercise 5 to 6 times a week)
一次大概四十分钟到一个小时。 yīcì dàgài sìshí fēnzhōng dào yīgè xiǎoshí.     (about 40 minutes to an hour per time)

我没有 "很~~~" 壮, Wǒ méiyǒu"hěn ~~~" zhuàng,
但是我有一些肌肉! dànshì wǒ yǒu yīxiē jīròu!

你呢? Nǐ ne? (How about you?)
你喜欢运动或是健身吗? Nǐ xǐhuān yùndòng huò shì jiànshēn ma?

ps. it's different from : 你喜欢运动 "还是" 健身? Nǐ xǐhuān yùndòng"háishì" jiànshēn?  (You like exercising or working? => the one who asks want to know which one do you like from the options he provides)

不太喜欢 Bú tài xǐhuān (don't quite like...)
你也可以说 Nǐ yě kěyǐ shuō (you can also say (that) ....)
讨厌 Tǎoyàn (to hate)
重训 zhòng xùn (to do weight training // weight training (n.) )
生活 Shēnghuó (life -> like : the living or daily life / to live a life)
sb (的) 生活中 (de) shēnghuó zhōng (in sb's life)
ps. 生命 Shēngmìng (life -> the span of one's life)
一部分 yībùfèn (a part )

a period of time + V + number + 次cì (V + ___ times + a period of time)
一次 yīcì + a period of time (a period of time per time)
大概 dàgài + number (about + number)
壮 zhuàng (strong -> physically)
肌肉 jīròu (muscles)

Hope you enjoy this topic! :D

that's pronounced 
Xīng qí in Taiwan. 
(either in dictionary or google translation for the pinyin spelling. 
I know there's differences of pronunciation between China and Taiwan though :)  
Thanks again for pointing out the differences!
