Swimming&running
After developing some aches and pains in my back due to carrying a baby around and not being fit at all I joined a gym to strengthen up and be more ready for the next baby. For the muscle pain I also visited a massage therapist and he said fitness is bad for people (unless you are a professional athlete, and he works with top athletes so I do trust him) and told me to run and swim instead. Should I really quit the gym?

In my opinion fitness will make you look good... and it will be much easier for you to get your next baby. So go for fitness and remember that massage therapist is not a real doctor.

You should keep going to the gym if you really enjoy it, just listen to your body and it will tell you what to do. On the other hand, you might also consider yoga, it’s a great and fun way to relax and train your body at the same time.

This depends very much on the type of gym and trainer you are seeing. I work out under the supervision of an internal martial artist and he specializes in building up tendons and smaller muscles which has not only left me in great physical shape, it has repaired a great deal of damage I suffered from a martial art accident and the resulting surgery. Running and swimming are fine, but if you find yourself an internalist it is an opportunity not to be missed.

He gave you good advice.
You can make your pain and condition even worse if you don't train correctly in the gym. My sister replaced gym for running and in 2 months, she's perfectly fit and feeling great.
Running and swimming are more natural way of exercise too, so I think it's better for human body as well.

Listen to the Doctor, I reckon!

You should listen to your doctor. I think he gave you a good advice. Running and swimming are natural ways to keep fit. It's also more economical than going to the gym everyday. Fresh air is also a plus.

Well, there are sporting events right now that involve running and swimming simultaneously. It is preferable to do some running first in order to work up a sweat, and then swimming.

While ordinary people (non-athletes) can and do go to the gym, swimming and running is a safer option since the chances of you harming your body is much lesser. Most people get too excited in the gym and end up overdoing it and killing some of their muscle. Plus, why run on treadmills when you can do so outdoors?! Why swim in sweat when you can do so in a swimming pool?!

If such is a doctors adive, I would listen to it. Besides, personally I have a lot more fun swimming and jogging than at the gym. It's a lot more relaxing and fun than doing fitness.

This is my area of expertise. There's a lot of joint stress from running, but fast walking and swimming are far better for you than gym equipment that is designed for one exact body size and shape, and is a lot more expensive and harder to access.
