Halacha - gym in 3 weeks, maaser
Submitted by bluma adler  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

1) One may attend gym classes in the 3 weeks even if there will be background music, because one is listening to the music for rhythm not for enjoyment.

2) If you will certainly remember to take off terumos and ma'aseros you may buy vegetables regardless of their hechsher or lack. However fruits present an additional problem of orlah, and unless you know which species have a negligible percent of young trees planted commercially you should avoid buying fruit without a reliable hechsher.
