What's the difference between "prefer to do "and "prefer doing"?

They mean the same thing. The verb "to prefer," is one that can be followed by either the infinitive or the gerund without altering meaning. Consider these two sentences: 1) I prefer to do aerobic exercises rather than lifting weights. 2) I prefer doing aerobic exercises rather than lifting weights. The meaning is identical. Both sentences are grammatically correct.
