Do You Enjoy Working Out With Your Significant Other

Dear Poll: Those Who Sweat Together . . .

Some people feel that exercise has enhanced their sex life and that theory makes perfect sense, especially when your significant other comes home all hot, sweaty, and out of breath! I'm not an exercise buff so when I do find the time to go to the gym, I use it as my alone time with my thoughts and my gossip magazines. On the flip side, I know many couples that love going to the gym together — they push each other to work out harder and they use that time to be together. So how about you? Do you enjoy working out with your significant other or do you prefer to exercise alone?

I would love to work out with my boyfriend, but he claims he needs a spot buddy, which I can't provide. He prefers to work with weights, and I prefer cardio, so I end up exercising alone. I also exercise less because when we're together, I can't go off to work out. I think working out gives both people more encouragement to be active, and it's definitely sexy to share such a healthy lifestyle.

I like going to the gym alone if I am doing cardio or lifting. We love playing racquetball, tennis and hiking together though, and it keeps me motivated to do that kind of stuff! And hiking through the mountains or walking along the beach with my boyfriend is so romantic!

I don't have a boyfriend at the moment, but if I did, and there were sports we both enjoyed, I think it would definately be fun to play them together.

i picked the second one, although there isnt anything embarassing about guys excersizing. i just prefer to do it alone.

the guy i'm dating an i belong to the same gym but we don't work out together-sometimes we are there at the same time and sometimes we aren't. if we happen to both be there at the same time and its a cardio day we will run on the treadmill together but then we split up and do our own things- he does all the free weights- i stick more to the cardio machines and abs!

I don't work out. Haha. I get enough exercise walking around campus all day and to the grocery store (40 mins away). Also, you know, metabolism and stuff.

I "workout" with my boyfriend almost all the time, but we don't work out "together". I mean, we go to a personal trainer 3 times a week together b/c it helps with time, and it's way downtown. And we go to the gym usually later on that day together, and we'll head to the gym on the days in between together, but we don't actually do any exercises together. I think that's too much. I enjoy turning around and seeing him do his bicep curls while I'm over on the Smith Machine. But it looks so annoying when I see a guy training his girlfriend who has no idea what she's doing, or she just is self conscious and is jut tagging along behind him having him make all the decisions for her. Hell I'd hate it if my boyfriend were tagging along all the time! It's wonderful to be there together, as long as we're not up in each other's space...that's how I like it!

Um...this poll was on here a few weeks ago!! But I love to work out with my boyfriend, he pushes me and motivates me. Some things I like to do on my own though, like strength training.

I chose other because I am not embarrassed by the way guys workout but it is my alone time.

When I work out, like weights and running, I like to do that alone. DH and I go hiking together- its more fun that way.

We are training for a triathlon right now so we are getting lots of workouts in together! We also play a lot of ultimate frisbee together as well. I love it. It's so much fun.

i like working out alone, but my boyfriend is one of those skinny sticks with killer metabolism who doesn't need to work out, whereas i gain 2 lbs if i give a sideways glance at a cheesecake... ugh. so i hit the gym by myself, and he occasionally does capoeira with his friends!

I love working out with my fiance cuz he pushes my limit...he's VERY competitive and when we're running he ALWAYS tries to be one step ahead of me....I've been a runner since track in high school so as much as he tries, I know I can always outrun him...haha! we take our dog to the park and we shoot hoops while we tie her leash up around the pole...she runs around us all crazy! he helps me do push-ups and sit ups and I watch him do his :P YES...workin out together makes sex very hot. We shower together after gettin all sweaty and then from there....

I like working out with another person. I'm a very self-conscious person, and having someone else there helps take the edge off my own mild paranoia.
