I've worked out two or three different times and it just won't budge. What gives?

how's your sims mood, the better their mood the faster they learn, so if their mood is red then most likely they wont learn anything.

nevermind, now my sims skill won't increase either now.

ok I've figured out that it is going up, just really really slow. I put the work out task to "until skill goes up" and it takes 18 hours until he finishes.

Solved
go to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin or where ever you installed it and see if you have a file named d3dx9_31.dll, then remove it from the folder, but don't delete, I put that file in there because one of my sims was pregnant, but wouldn't advance past the first stage and putting that file their fixed it.

that didn't fix it like I though it, but I looked in to it more and found out that the gyms are bugged for some reason and so you might want to work out at home.
