Both good BUT: At the GYM you can concentrate on different body parts with different types of exercise and toning mechanics. Best wishes.

Need both: Aerobics (running, etc.,) and lifting weights are a great formula for losing bad weight, gaining muscle weight and burning calories. But you need to practice good eating habits and nutrition too if you want to lose weight properly
