Hello teachers,
Is it more natural 'in' than 'at' in the following questions? I think 'a' is better.
a) How long will you do aerobics in the gym? I'll do it for half an hour.
b) How long will you do aerobics at the gym? I'll do it for half an hour.

Thanks in advance.

    I also think that "at" is better in this sentence. I usually hear "at" in remarks about what somebody did at the gym.

    I would use "at" for the location, rather than "in" for the enclosure. You can do aerobics many places, so I think location is more important here.
