Context: I want to express the idea that I enjoy exercising in my spare time while using the word "leisure". I have come up with this:

I love exercising in leisure.

Then I started thinking maybe I should say "leisure time" instead after googling how people use the word.


Is my original sentence make sense?

    "Leisure time" is the phrase you want here. However, "spare time" sounds a bit more natural to me.

    It would also sound better with "my" before either one: "my leisure time" or "my spare time."

    "Leisure time" isn't very common, at least in BE, you would use "free time" or "spare time".

    In my opinion, you can't use leisure in the way that you suggested (either with or without "time" on the end)

    I think it would be hard to understand the meaning, but it would be understood. It's not a native structure in which you would use "leisure"...
