in a group or solo?

do you like to work out in a group (are you more motivated that way) or are you a loner during workouts?

runners?
weight-lifters?
other exercises?

what suits your fancy and why?

Solo I tend to slack more if I run with others. I have a hard time having people competitive to workout with.
Weights I like to do with friends since I can incorporate new ideas.

solo for everything! I hate having people watching me sweat! I can't avoid working in groups for group exercise classes.. but even then I try to pick the most obscure spot I get all red and sweaty, not something I want to show off!

I enjoy working out with a partner when doing weights, solo for the treadmill (so I can zone out), and I love doing group fitness classes.

to answer my own questions:

cardio/taekwondo stuff: in a group

running: only with someone who is faster than me to get me going and keep me motivated

weight-lifting: yeah, my kids like to be there when i use them as barbells (especially the younger ones)

The real question is how much exercise do you get every week, and how long you normally exercise for

nola, you are a trip!

i used to like working out with a group for spinning, body pump, yoga etc. loved the music, having others to serve as good models for motivation..

now.. three kids later and less time.. i LOVE working out on my own/solo (i do home work outs cardio/weights/pilates/yoga etc) and i wouldnt have it any other way.. i have become more self motivated, it's a great way to be more efficient with the time i have for optimal work outs..

Group, I also like to go with a friend because it keeps me accountable... otherwise I just won't go.

Group, but not because I like working out with a bunch of people. Rather, it's because I like having an instructor to boss me around

I prefer alone, I like to zone out and be in my own world. I haven't been to the gym in a while, though Think I just need a break for a bit. I hate even walking outside when it's as hot as it's been.

I really enjoy weight lifting on my own. I miss group classes like body pump and spinning though. They really keep me motivated. I prefer actual sports like soccer and tennis though!

running: i like to run with someone else and/or one of my dogs
walking: with the kids and dogs
weights: with a trainer, at home. i don't like the gym setting.

the only thing i liked doing at the gym was zumba classes, but i canceled my membership because i just wasn't motivated enough to go.

Running: Preferably alone...with my headphones on.

Weight Lifting: I could go either way...I usually end up playing the "personal trainer" role when I'm working out with a friend. The abusive kind. "You can bench more than 120 pounds, you pussy. Throw on an extra 25 pound plate. Do not make me insult you again."

Other exercises: I have difficulty doing yoga on my own...my mind wanders, I get bored...and I don't get to get instructions from the cute blond yoga instructor at my gym. Heh.

I'm a loner, I let the headphones rip, if someone talks to me I usually just do the "Nod & Agree" bit and slowly back away.
While doing my exercises though if I see someone doing something different I'll try & mimic it later.
oh and it's 3-5 days a week, 1-2hrs each time. I've been trying to incorporate more cardio but I hate running in place or anywhere that's not a field and I can't find a dog park here that people actually pick up. I do sometimes pretend the poo are like bear traps and avoid them, if I don't, I grab my leg and start screaming, then get attacked by dogs.
