Do You Work Out With Your Significant Other?

My husband and I work out with each other at least one day a week. Having a partner in crime really helps us both stay on track. My girlfriend, however, refuses to work out with her boyfriend. So I am curious about you guys . . .

My husband is the biggest lazy bum ever, so NO, he doesn't work out with me. When we were dating, he told me he LIKED running, so I took him on a 5 mile run with me one day. Halfway through the run, I noticed I was running by myself and I looked back to see him panting and walking about 100 yards behind me. I ran back to him and asked him if he was okay...and he said "I'm DYING! I NEED some water!". So I ran to the nearest gas station and I gave it to him and we ended up walking the rest of the way home. He never wanted to run with me after that, lol.

We have pretty different schedules, so my husband and I only get to work out together about once a month.

i wish i had a boyfriend to work out with lol maybe i should start hitting the gym more and find myself a hottie there ;) aaanyway, when i DID have a boyfriend, we would go for walks on the beach in our town or go to the gym together and do seperate things every once in a while... and no matter what shape i was in, he actually thought it was hot to see me all hot and sweaty, it reminded him of the other times we got hot and sweaty together~ so dont be so self concious ladies!

If my hubby didn't go to the gym or bike with me I would never go. He would be the first one to tell you as well !!! We are going to Jamaica in April so that has been motivation as well. He wants to try the yoga class while we are there so I'm excited. We do our own thing in the gym but it's nice to know he's there with me.

My boyfriend and I have went to the gym together in the past, but I would have to say that it didn't quite work out. Going for walks together is fine, but when it comes to the gym he just distracts me. He tries to act like he knows a better workout routine for me, and tells me not to lift such heavy weights (so I don't put on too much muscle). I feel like I am the only one who knows my body, and what excersizes work best for me, so in the end he is just bothering me.

We take walks together sometimes...he also just bought a new bike so we can ride together this summer. And we're also buying an elliptical machine together when our tax returns come in.

NO!!!! I WISH, oh how I WISH I could work out with my boyfriend, but alas, he doesn't work out EVER, even with this huge belly hanging! =/ I try to get him to jog at the park when I call him in the morning, but he always has an excuse. He eats like a crazy kid too.

My boyfriend doesn't belong to the same gym as I do. But when the weather is nice, we play tennis, go bike riding or walking. I'm in better shape this year so I'm pumped to go running with him this summer!

We go to the gym together atleast once a week...and by ourselves on other days. Its just hard to get a babysitter for our twins...and i really HATE the daycare at our gym. The people who watch the kids are mean and lazy....if my one of my sons cry a little they run up to the treadmill to fetch me. Its like...arent YOU supposed to watch my kids?? Let him cry for goodness sake!! Plus...even though their kids area looks nice, i know they dont clean it or de-germ it much and that just grosses me out.

My friendship with my boyfriend actually began when we started running and going to the gym together. We both like to stay active and exercise, especially since we're both so self-conscious of our "jiggles." We keep each other motivated and I think working out is so much more fun when he's around. I miss the days when we used to go to the park and run around the track with our puppy...sadly she's gone now, but we're definitely going to get another one! The only part that sucks is he's so much more fit than me (he's in the military). He can run for miles and miles and bike for over an hour. Then he lifts. Yeesh. On days when he feels like going all out, I stay home and nap! :P

My boyfriend and I used to run together and I really enjoyed it, then he stopped running! I am trying to get him to exercise again but he is always making up excuses =/

we go together on occasion, but we split up while we're there. my only gripe is that he usually works out for a shorter period of time, so either i have to make him wait around, or cut my workout short.

Yes, I do always. We keep each other motivated and offer support and advise.

It's like pulling teeth to go for a walk. I'm working on it.

I go to the gym with my boyfriend sometimes when I stay at his house. I like getting up early on the weekends and going together and then grabbing a smoothie afterwards, feels good!

Long distance relationship so ... not so much. But we do sort of guilt trip each other into going because we always tell each other on the phone when we've gone. So if he calls and tells me he just got back from the gym I feel guilty for being lazy and go myself.

my husband inspires me at the gym, he's in such great shape! he helped me lose over 30 lbs a year ago, and continues to support me now that i've become as fit as i was 15 years ago. its nice to see him at the gym every morning, and even better when he trains me on the weekends. i know i am very lucky!

My boyfriend and I always go to the gym together but we don't always work out together when we get there. He does alot of strength training and I try to focus on cardio once I'm there. When I'm am up for strength training, I work with him on some exercises.

My husband and I go to the gym together every morning. Once we're there, we split up and do our own things, but it's nice to have a companion to keep me motivated (and someone else to drive on the snowy, icy roads in Western PA.)

We cycle and run together on the weekends, if it rains, we'll do spin class together. We go to the gym together (when I feel like getting up at 4:30 am) but then do our own strength training thing. Otherwise, i'm still in bed at 4:30 am and have some alone time at the gym during the day.

He motivates me and frustrates me when we are exercising. So I like to workout with, but not all the time.

I can't work out with people. My work out time is my alone time and I can pace myself however long or short I feel like being at the gym. I would hate to be waiting on someone or have someone waiting on me. Plus I'd really rather not have him see me all disgustingly sweaty because I sweat a hell of a lot.
