Hi. I have a question.

1) I go to a gym whenever I want to, whether on a weekday or weekend.
2) I go to a gym whenever I want to, regardless of the day of the week.

Is "whether on a weekday or weekend" in #1 correct/idiomatic? Also, do these sentences (which I made up) mean the same? (I think so)

Thanks

    Yes, and you've got a free choice between 'whether on a weekday or weekend' and 'whether on a weekday or a weekend' and even 'whether on a weekday or on a weekend', with the attendant dialect choices between on/at a weekend (or on/at the weekend).

    Thanks entangledbank. It's good to know that all of those versions work! :) ('on' more common in AE and 'at' more common in BE, I suppose)
