Do You Have a Fitness Partner?

For some of us, fitness partners are the best way to keep motivated. Right now, my fitness buddy is my husband. We've been running together at night since it gets darker earlier these days. What about you, do you have a fitness partner?

My work out is definitely "alone time." I use it to decompress, and having to interact with someone else would probably get in the way of that. Also, I'd rather keep my red face, frizzy hair, and sweat-soaked spandex private.

I don't really work out. My sister and I do bellydance together though...it's really good. It has made my joints (especially the hips) much more flexible and has relieved a lot of pain in my back that I have gotten from being in a car accident. My boyfriend loves it too. ;)

I'm not really into working out. i get most of my exercise through dance. i would like to, however. i have a few friends who wanna work out as well, but we all have crazy schedules, so it never happens.

I mostly work out with my sister... but she has some friends that I have become friends and sometimes my ex tag along... it's like a big social gathering at my gym!

It's mainly just me. But I would consider the folks that are also regulars in the classes I take and teach.

I work out by myself...in the peace and quiet of my home with my DVD's!

I have a trainer, and I would never ever work out without her. A) because it motivates me to know I have an appointment, B) I wouldn't know what to do at the gym without her, and C) she and I have a fabulous time together! Plus, she stretches me out at the end of our sessions. SO GREAT. Completely worth the money.

I had two friends that I worked out with for a while, but now they attend a different gym. So I'm pretty much on my own. But I'm happy to have found more fitness-minded friends these days.

My boyfriend is my workout partner.. it's a lot of fun. He's very strong and basically he deals with me being a wimp ha. He's just such a freaking cutie!!

No, I can't work out with anyone else unless its hiking. I like being able to go to the gym, do what I want, and go at my own pace.

I like to work out by myself, I don't like having to be at a certain place at a certain time. I do like to do my short runs with my pooch though.

why is "best friend" an option? i can't just workout with a friend who is not my best friend, not my husband, not a coworker and not a relative.

I used to work out alone and never seemed to stick to my workout regime. Since working out with my boyfriend, it is impossible to skip a workout. He won't let me! :)

I work out with my sister, and for the most part it is great. Every once and a while though, if either of us is feeling lazy and wants to skip the gym, we both end up losing motivation!

I used to work out with someone else. My roommate from my first year of college. We went all the time together, but then we moved away, and things happened, so, now I'm solo. I don't really mind it.

I'm with mcreverie - my workout time is my solitude for the day. I get to spend an hour with absolutely no distractions. I prefer to keep it that way!
