In brief: It depends
It depends on your level of fitness, general health, and exercise intensity.
2 or 3 times a week would be a minimum. If young or in good shape exercise every day with a few days of rest would be ideal.

In brief: 4 or more days/week
I recommend a minimum of 4 days a week of exercise (however, it does not have to be all in the gym.).
I recommend this number because once this is achieved, you will have exercised more days than you have not. Additionally, there should be some days of for rest and recovery.
