  • If you work out with someone it is ok but I like to do this on my own, just put on music in your ears to motivate you that way there is no depending on anyone.

  • For me, it's easiest by myself because I listen to my iPod and really get motivated that way. Working out with someone else just distracts me and makes me less likely to push myself. That said, however - I think that working out with someone else is a great way to get started if you're just beginning a fitness routine. A lot of people need the motivation and accountability that comes from another person, so it just depends on your mentality and what works best for you.

  • I would love to just be the kind of person that can wake up alittle early and do it before everyone wakes up, but I just cant find the mojo to get up and go. I know I need to do it, I guess I just dont have anyone who realy cares about my health to push me. I CAN DO THIS!!!!!

  • I think everybody is diffrent. I can workout better by myself but I know a lot of people who need to have somebody else there with them to help push them.

  • I like to work out by myself at the gym but it is nice to have someone that you can have hold you if you are doing it together you can keep each other going.

  • I like the motivation of working with others, but the privacy of making an ass out of myself when attempting to do things I really can't.
