Do you find it easier to have a buddy or do you prefer doing your own thing.
I don't mind when a friend asks me to go to the gym with them. But I'm worse than a personal trainer I push myself and expect others to do the same.

I'm now my friends will power she'll send me a text or email if she wants to eat something bad. I advised her on having some water. Or picture some clothing she wants to get back into again etc....

I need a "online" fitness buddy, someone who can motivate me when needed and vice versa.

I usually work harder with a buddy but if I just want to relax and go at my own pace I'll work out solo

I prefer alone so i can push myself at my level not theirs( i am a firm believer in one more). But i do lack motivation to get started so another person helps with that.........ok short answer i am on the fence.

Depends..if I'm running- I prefer to go alone.  It gives me a chance to think & just breathe. 

 

If I'm lifting or doing HITT I prefer to go with someone.  Helps motivate me to do 1 more set.

I don't mind working out with someone. Typically though I have found that friends never can keep a consistent schedule with me.

I like both according to who it is but aside from a couple of people I'd rather go alone cuz I can go at my pace and my level.

i don't mind going with someone but I don't like when I try to help and even though you asked for it you act like I am wasting your time!!

I like workout alone. I feel odd working out with others. I do run with my dog!

I think that's awesome what you and your workout buddy do, such a good idea!

Having one can definitely motivate you more, whether you compete and see who can drop a certain amount faster etc. Or if you both just motivate each other to reach your personal goals.
