Here's Exactly How Much You Should Be Exercising If You Sit at a Desk All Day, Says Science

Who do you workout with?

These days I have precious little time to myself, going to the grocery store alone, without my two precious girls in tow, honestly feels like a vacation. Since I am quite pressed for time, my workout has become my quality alone time. Someone recently suggested we run together, and I was actually shocked...I felt like they were encroaching on my quality alone time. Then, I realized I was being quite paranoid and most people don't feel how I feel. So it got me wondering whom people workout with, or do they go it alone.

I go to my small gym alone, but I'm going to start yoga with a group of friends :) it's good to switch it up, keeps things interesting.

I work out by myself. I tried to get my friends to work out with me but they are not big gym rats. Plus I get up early in the morning on the weekend to go to the gym because nobody is there. I go to the gym on my campus so college kids dont get up early on the weekend

i tend to work out alone. i don't like people to see me sweating and breathing so heavily. however, i do like to work out with my boyfriend sometimes. i noticed i work out longer with him there.

I actually like to work out with guys around. They don't judge and I don't care what I look like. For some reason they push me further. I'm a girl I know how I think, so the less females around the better.

My hubby and I take group classes at our gym, so it's us and the 15 other people, lol. But I begged him for almost a year to try RPM, and when he finally gave in he discovered he really enjoyed it. So now we go almost every night after work where we all laugh and yell and get breathless for an hour. He refuses to go to BodyJam with me tho, hahaha!

I work out "with my husband". Not so much at the same time but the same days of the week, we encourage each other to get motivated.

yeah, swimming is a full body workout and great for the lungs but man its tough and you have to only do it at a pool. With bikes, we may get inspired in the middle of a movie to go ride for a few minutes :) good luck.

vrico that sounds great I'll have to check that out, it sounds better than his idea of teaching me how to swim...

yeah esk4, I experienced the same issue so we got bicycles! We had to make sure to find one that fit him but we both got boulders models by Giant and we love them! It's a great full leg and butt workout without impacting the knees.

my boyfriend and I lift together, its so much easier than asking one of the other guys to spot me, and having them think I can't spot them... when it comes to cardio tho he's 6'7 with knee problems so usually we can't use the same machines or even go for similar lengths

I enjoy working out with my fiance. He is a big man and he motivates me to push myself harder. At the same time i motivate him to stretch more and recognize that being 6 feet 4 inches tall does not mean you can't do yoga!
