I always exercise alone to an exercise dvd. If I walk outside, my 33 year old daughter is my walking partner. We have the best mom/daughter conversations during those times.

I have a running partner that I've run with for about 3 years (she's currently recovering from surgery). We usually run once or twice a week.

I always ask DH to go with me to the gym or the park. He usually doesn't go, but I do.

I've walked with a co-worker in the past, and she wants to start back. Anytime she's ready, I'll be there. But I'll still exercise on my own.

it is better to have somebody else to hold you accountable. Unfortunately it seems I'M that person for the people I know!

I like the social aspect of walking with a friend, but have found I move faster with just my dog. However, while my sister was visiting, she tried one of my workout dvds and I found I pushed myself harder while she was working out with me. So I think it depends on the workout and your goals for the workout.

WISH i could find an exercise buddy! i've had two but both were not serious about weight loss. our jogs turned into walking and talking for an hour.
i just accept that it's lonely at the top. emoticon lol

Mostly alone but with hubby on the weekends. Would rather work out with someone than alone.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

I like walking alone to get a better workout. I am also more consistant than trying to depend on others.

I get on the recumbant bike and pedal on my own. It doesn't matter to me who is in the room. If I feel it's time to get on the bike, it's time to get on the bike.

I like to walk with a friend because I like to talk, but have found as far as meeting my exercise goals I do better alone. I go at a faster pace and I do enjoy my music. Right now I am doing both.
