Definitely with a lady partner because it is easier to protect each other from those guys trying to hit on girls.Unfortunately, it is becoming an issue to be left alone as a girl and we have to fend off an increased number of verbal attempts from guys that disrupt our programs."No" or "not interested" seems to be words that are not very well understood by the gents.Being 2 girls enables us to compete against each other in areas where we have similar strengths or weaknesses and it is motivating to try to match the performance of the other.
We r u livin tho?
@Zach1457 in a larger city
@Zach1457 U. K.
Psh i live in Poland but i can't see those problems
@Zach1457 yes because you are a guy.
No guys attacc girl like you said, maybe some hitting thats all.
@Zach1457 Don't worry, I can take care of myself
Thats what i was trying to say , you dont need a company to go gym :D
@Zach1457 I have my mace to take care of those kind of situations.
@Zach1457 pepper spray
thanks for the MHO
Do you spray every man who trying to hit you?
@Zach1457 I have done it 3 time till now.
Why? What kind of lunatic you are?
@Zach1457 lunatic for defending myself?
They dont do anything to harm you, they trying to flirt w you
@Zach1457 Do you know the meaning of the word "no"? can you give me a definition?How many times does one have to say "no" till the instance is becoming dangerous and obnoxious and requiring a different and stronger language?
If they start doing anything physical to you then you have right to use that tool.But i dont think they do. You're just exaggerating things.
@Zach1457 ok. Can we end this useless conversation then?
Alone. Other people just want to talk, socialize, be seen, or they don't exercise at the same intensity as I do!Now if I can find someone that's workouts as hard as I do, I wouldn't mind. But until then, I prefer exercising alone.
Either way works for me. When my wife and I go "together", we are in different ends of the gym anyway (different equipment requires that), so I usually provide my own motivation.
I like to pump up alone. 👍
Have an opinion?
I go together with my wife, though our routine is very different so we just kind of head there together and do our separate things, talking to each other here and there during breaks. Most of the motivational benefit is just for us to nudge each other to go in the first place.
i feel you
I like going to the gym by myself because I am more focused and efficient with my workouts. When I step in the gym I have a sequence of workout routines I want to do, especially as my routines tend to be time calibrated and tempo-oriented. 30 or 60 seconds rest in between reps between sets or super-sets.If you have a partner, particularly if s/he is new to workout, or who constantly wants your helping hand, it can be hard to maintain time-calibrated and tempo-oriented routines.There are situations where having a partner as a spotter is necessary, especially if you are aiming for a heavy lift like a bench press. The partner watches your lift and could timely intervene if you are struggling to get that rep push/lift. The spotter intervention is to prevent you from injury as shown below.
I used to go with a partner, when I first started, but eventually he left and I started to do things on my own and I think I prefer it - I didn't know much when I started.Plus, I think I some common exercises that I see others doing and I don't think I follow the same information as others, when it comes to what to do and what not to do, so I can just train on my own terms and do what I want, something I think I much prefer, though a spotter here and there would be a pro, if training with a partner, assuming they're an effective one.
Whenever my friends ask to workout with me and I let them, they don’t keep up with me. We’ll get through two exercises and then they’re ready to go. Or they’ll go do their own thing. My dad has been the only person who actually goes through an entire workout with me. He’s an ex bodybuilder so that’s something he already enjoys doing.If I could get someone as committed to the gym as me to be my partner, I’d love it. I have yet to meet anyone like that though. I’m the only built guy in my friend group.
It's rare nowadays that I go to a gym away from home. If & when I do, I'd rather go alone so I can workout at my own pace. However, frankly, I don't like going to gyms anymore. I prefer to set up a well-equipped gym at home where I don't have to worry about anyone else's germs, have complete privacy & am not rushed because somebody else is waiting for me to finish using a particular equipment.
Whenever I go with someone else, I find that they tend not to be serious about the workout and end up chatting which I hate when I am focused on getting my workout done. And the serious ones, tend to be next level serious where it becomes a competition rather than just a workout or working at our own strengths and pace and I have no desire for that. No, I prefer to just concentrate on my own goals and my form and not wasting a bunch of time talking.
It is hard to go with anybody, in my experience as they not consistent.I had one good gym buddy for few months. It was good for motivation as it is hard to get there and do main exercises and in the end that person found one excuse after other not to go and the I just decided to get rid of that idea...Now I do it alone, when I get there.
By myself. Also what is up with that picture of those women using those tiny ass weights. They aren’t lifting shit perhaps 0,5kg? Might as well be using tiny water bottles. Women aren’t that weak.
I wish I had a gym partner, they can be quite the motivation boost. But I struggle with finding s. o that can keep up... its usually me being stuck on the cardio machienes whilst they move on to other stuff lol
I prefer going by myself so I can get what I want to done. Either way is okay though. I used to go to a small community gym where I knew everyone so I'd always see people I knew. I was there so much I would actually volunteer run it at times.
I know myself very well. If I go to the gym with friends/a partner, I will be distracted and spend more time talking than exercising. I concentrate better when I am by myself.
Solo, always solo. In the gym you go to workout and focus on your goal, not to talk. If you want to talk! Go to a café and mingle , a gym is to workout
By myself I tend to be in my own little world while listening to music. I find it much more enjoyable to work by myself at my own pace.
I meet new people in the gym, I go to studio classes mostly and make friends with the people that come often since we see eachother every time.
Back when I did used to go I went with my drunk friend who knew all the right exercises and all then he stopped going and it would be boring alone so I stopped when he did. I have gone since then over the years by myself and it sucked so I never go.
By myself!!If i go with someone else we go in separate directions.The gym is my therapy so i dont need someone disturbing my hour of peace
Hi can you reply to my response on your dinner date question , I wanted to explain my reply but I can't find it again lol but if you reply I can go straight to it ☺
partner, because i don't like random people talking to me.
Being going solo for 6 years and I got no complaints, plus I've gotten so used to it that a partner now would just feel weird
I go by myself. Not really by choice though, as I don't go to the same gym as my partner
By myself. Otherwise too much bro talkDo one set and talk for 10 mins while grabbing your balls No point lol
I don't go to the gym - I have one at the house. But when I did it was to pound iron, it wasn't a social event.
Both work equally fine I think. By myself I tent to have more guys come up to me to talk and when I'm with a friend that happens way less
I would like to go with someone who knows what their doing so i can follow and do it correctly.
the only way I'll even go is with someone. Otherwise I feel like the whole place is just looking at me and it's very uncomfortable. Having someone there with me, helps me relax.
I love having a partner to bush one another but when you don't I still go, gym eat sleep repeat.
Totally would go with you
In the moment I don't have anyone to go with, so by myself, lol.
It's not a focus thing, it's about flexibility and the fact that I like building my own plans.
I don't have any friends, so I always go alone. I've been doing that for the past 4 years
Mostly by myself, usually I don't find friends that are up to work out as much haha
My gym time is serious business if you go with me to the gym with me your gonna get a workout
Usually alone, but if someone í know is there, its always nice.
Bymyself or with my brother. He knows how to push me.
Partner. Girls hate being alone because they hate for a black guy to come talk to them he has to be a white man
Me and my girlfriend sometimes go together, but we don't really work out with each other, we usually just end up doing our own thing.
I usually only go with a partner if that person is stronger than I am and can push me to become better than I already am.
Partner always gets on the way. I rarely slow down long enough to even fully catch my breath.
I think if I alone in gym I can better focus to lift and movement and because of this reason this case is sufficient for me.
Someday someone will be my partner. She will be my wife💪.
by myself, keeps me focused more :D
Definitely by myself 🌸💗🌸
I typically go by myself.
I don't have a partner, so I go alone
Myself. Gym is me time
I like going by myself
