Thoughts on having a workout buddy?

Thursday, February 21, 2013

I had a great workout with my roommates last night (who are some of the most fit people I have ever met) and I really pushed myself hard. Sometimes I am able to really focus well when I'm on my own, but the competitive nature in me really enjoyed being pushed/motivated by another person. What does everyone else think? Do you do better when working with a buddy or do you 'get in the zone' more when working out solo? Hope everyone is having a great and healthy day!! Love you sparkers emoticon

    I like both! I am a walker and enjoy just taking off from my house not having a set time and not having to wait on anyone. I ve only had two partners who have the same pace as me but not committed anymore so that leaves me on my own. Not bad.

I also do yoga in a group setting with an instructor. It matters not to me if we are a small or large group. Our class is all about individualized workouts between you and your mat with no judgement of self or others. I pretty much tune all else out.

BUT i also do a few workout videos and step aerobics at a ladies' fitness club and very much like the company for those. I do tend to push myslef harder to keep up and get a little boastful when others are watching! I like that healthy competition! However, I would never demean anyone who is working hard and striving to get better! I hope that we motivate each other!

Different strokes for different folks... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I do my yoga in a studio setting, but it is a a personal practice with the teacher there to assist and adjust. I like keeping my ego out of the equation, but love the energy of others in the room.
