I’ve never in my life done an at-home workout video but I am wanting to get the 30 Day Shred. We have one tv and it is in the front room, and I will have to work out in the a.m. before work, so naturally, hubby will be there too. I will probably get up before him to do it, so as not to be distracted or self-conscious. I know he won’t make fun of me or anything, I just don’t know about jumping around in front of the tv with him in the next room/wandering around the house lol.
How do you all feel about working out in front of your hubby/SO? Does it detract from your workout?
note: My husband would not join me in a workout like this. He rarely works out and prefers to use weights when he does.

I got some videos and felt silly about it at first too. I would start the workout and then I’d be laughing because I can only imagine how crazy I looked to someone watching me. But even though he’s usually in the same room, he’s at the computer so he barely pays me any mind when I’m working out. And if he does glance my way, he doesn’t laugh at all. You’ll get used to it!

I do. Sometimes I feel like sort of a dork like jumping around but Fiance just goes about his AM business and sometimes chimes in that I look cute ;o)

Oh my gosh, when I first started doing home videos, I refused to workout in front of my hubs (BF at the time). Luckily, we had a spare room with a TV/DVD player, and I did it in there with the door shut.
In our new city apartment, I was forced to do it in the living room, and now the hubs does it with me. I was really self-conscience at first, but I got over it. Although, I tell him if he’s not doing it with me, he’s gotta go somewhere else and not STARE at me while I do it, ’cause yeah, that would make me feel weird. I don’t care if he sees me, i just don’t want a stare-down.

I work out in the morning when Fiance has already gone to work. I will NOT work out in front of him…lol. One time I did work out when he was at home & I made him go in our bedroom & watch TV while I did it. Then he decided he wanted to clean up a little bit and was going to and from the living room, where I was working out. Every time I saw him walk by I would stop and just stare at him. LOL I think it’s so funny that you feel the same way! I agree with you though, I don’t want him to see me jumping around! 🙂

I’m cheating. I don’t use videos, but I use EA Active. And yes. If he’s not at work when I need to do it, he’s on the couch behind me. lol. He’d never do it with me, but he’s very nice about it. lol.

haha that’s hilarious – I totally kick my fiance out of the room before I start, otherwise I’m too self-conscious! It’s probably the only thing I ask him not to watch (oh, and weddingbee…)

@ Lees –
“Every time I saw him walk by I would stop and just stare at him.”

I did once and he wouldn’t stop bugging me, so never again!
He would either start mocking me by doing the movements, or come over witha towl and wipe my sweat, or hand me water. He finds alot of humor in annoying me! 🙂

LOL! This is a hilarious topic!
Actually, I have worked out with my Fiance and it was the funniest thing ever! Picture this: Me- a street size 20 and HIM- a men’s large. BOTH in workout gear and ready to sweat away the pounds!
Well, only 15 minutes into the workout DVD, my Fiance fell on the floor, crawled to the couch and announced that he was done. I was SO tickled! I couldn’t believe that someone who was so much more in shape than I was, would actually fallout 15 minutes into a workout! I still talk about it til this day!

I’ve done the 30 day shred in front of him a few times. We only have one DVD player, in our living room, where he hangs out doing work every night. I think he thought it was funny to watch me but I didn’t really care 🙂 We sort of joked around about it and I asked him to join me.. of course he didnt 🙂
