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.
