At the gym I honestly don’t care who is around, but we moved last year and our local gym sucks so I didn’t join. At home though I don’t like having people around or being bothered/distracted so I usually go to the basement. I’ll just workout in the living room if I’m home by myself though, but our dogs still bother me then. My 12lb chihuahua loves to lay on my back while I do pushups and it drives me nuts lol.

My treadmill is in our office, I have a lock on the door so him nor our little kids barge in. An I only will do DVDs if the kids are napping, fiancé isnt home and the baby is ok if she’s in her swing. I don’t like when the 2&3 year olds try and distract me and its embarrassing in front of him. At the gym I don’t care because I don’t know them

@rumpunch712:  Darling Husband works out in the basement because a) it’s cool and b) the cat isn’t down there to “help” while he’s working out.

 

On the odd occassion I work out, I do so in the living room because I go along with workout videos and that’s the only room we have a tv in!  Guess I could do it downstaris with my laptop tho now that I think of it…

@rumpunch712:  I totally dance (only cardio I like) in my room by myself lol!  It sounds crazy, but I just love house music and hate crowds.  This was my perfect solution.

You can totally ask him to stay away for the duration of your workout. I work out in our living room and for the longest time, he had to stay in the computer room until I was done. I finally got over it and it’s not a huge deal now (especially because he helps me with my form), but I still don’t like it if he sits on the couch while I’m working out.

@rumpunch712:  LOL my cat “helps out” when I work out by biting me (especially my feet/calves) or stretching out on my yoga mat. Jerk. 

I was so horrified of him seeing me for the longest time. I tried working out at a gym, but I just couldn’t handle it. Now it’s like, “Eh, whatever, walk through here to get to the kitchen or whatever,” but before I would literally stop what I was doing until he went back to the computer room.

Whenever I work out at home I go in the basement and put a yoga mat down.

I feel the same way as you (not wanting Fiance in the room) if he’s doing something else like playing a game or doing whatever.  BUT my Fiance actually works out with me and I love it!  It really helps to have someone else doing the same workout as you as a motivator, and we also challenge each other when one of us doesn’t feel like working out or whatever.  If you can convince your Fiance to work out with you, maybe it won’t be as embarrassing/uncomfortable.

I workout in our garage for 3 reasons.

1) I’m doing Insanity and it requires a lot of jumping and stuff and my puppy thinks that when I jump, it means I want to play and then she attacks me. So the garage it is.

2) like I said, my exercise requires jumping and since I’m not a graceful butterfly, I’m afraid some things might get knocked over, etc 

3) I don’t want my Fiance to see me because I get terribly red faced and breathe like walrus in labor during my workouts. It’s just not cute. If he comes out into the garage I pause the TV and yell at him to go away lol
