1. She asked me, "will you go to the gym today?" This is direct speech,

2. She asked me whether I would go to the gym today. This is indirect speech.

I just want to know whether my indirect sentence is fine. You might convert to the indirect speech in some other way. As a matter of fact, I am training at a gym 3 times a week.

Hi,

1. She asked me, "will you go to the gym today?" This is direct speech,

2. She asked me whether I would go to the gym today. This is indirect speech.

If she asked on Monday and on a later day you are reporting the speech, you can't say 'today'. eg She asked me whether I would go to the gym that day.

Best wishes, Clive

I prefer: she said "Will you go to the gym today?"

She asked if I am going to the gym today.

............. If it's the same day.

She asked if I am going to the gym today. [ Is this too indirect speech?]
RotterShe asked if I am going to the gym today. [ Is this too indirect speech?]

Nope. "She asked if I would be going to the gym today." is more "indirect".
Or:

1. She said "Will you be going to the gym today?"

(What did she say?)

2. She asked if I was going to the gym today.
