You are in the gym.  You are doing stuff.  Do you know what you are doing?  Sure there may be some workouts but are you training or are you working out?  If you are unsure, there is a difference between the two.  In each of them, you will see workouts using the exact same movements.  They will be performed at a high intensity and the object will be to go as fast and hard as you can.  There will be constantly varied functional movements done at high intensity.  Basically, if you were to look at a sliver of time of either, it would be hard to distinguish between the two of them.  The difference is the goal between them.  It's not that one is right and the other is wrong or that one is fun and the other isn't.  It's that they each have a particular purpose.  When you talk about working out, it's for the idea of improving your general fitness for the sake of having better fitness.  If you are training, then there is a definitive goal in mind.  You have a competition, you have a meet, you want to make the team, you want to hit a certain weight on movement.  These are all goals in which you will need to use specific training techniques to reach them.  The core of the training will a metabolic conditioning workout but then you will add things you need to be better at those workouts.  Sure you will see strength training.  Now, we can still be in the general fitness realm here but if you get more specific about the strength movements, the more it will move into training.  If you do pulling drills, if you do certain types of squats, if you do extra auxiliary movements so that you can milk the maximum out of every movement, if you are doing capacity work so that you can increase the amount of high skilled movements...and you are doing this all for a particular goal......well then you are training.  It all comes down to the purpose, the reason you are doing it.  It's not that its a game or that it's not fun.  It's for a reason.  Which one are you doing? :)
