    No I HATE, DESPISE, LOATHE it.

    The other day she asked me to train her and immediately she starts complaining. A week later I took her to work with my mma coaches wife. On same exercise I hear her go no I am ok I can do this but with me its always it hurts or some sort of crying lol

    And she was an athlete she is not prissy at all but I cant deal.

    I have seen some couples who go to the gym and are all business.

    I have also seen others who go and its a major public display of affection.

    Plus you also have all the guys checking out the girls, so I would not workout with a girl, unless of course you are trying to impress her or something like that.

    But all in all its too awkward and annoying IMO.

    My wife and I workout together. We used to go to the gym, now we workout at home. She knows I am all business when working out and so is she. We enjoy working out with each other. It's quality time together.

    regardless of gender, your workout partner should compliment your time in the gym. not detract from it. So if your spouse/GF adds value, then go for it.

    ....the exception is if you are trying to train your partner/GF, then of course it will mean additional work.

    Lately we have been training separately. Mostly because of the high volume I have been doing and changing plates every set is difficult. But the last two sessions she wanted to lift with me she lasted less than 5 minutes, didn't make it through warm ups because I called her out on any sort of negative whine or complaint. That set her off and she left both times. I feel bad, but I can't put up with that when I need to focus.

    I workout with the wife about 50% of the time schedule permitting, but I would have to say I get better workouts when alone.

    That's why I made the requirement that if she lifts with me she has to move just as many plates.

    I have to do it alone. Otherwise I end up wanting to fool around with the wife and not workout.

    I voted yes, but what that means is that me and mg GF go to the gym together all the time. Once inside she goes to her routine and I go to mine. Works for both of us. I keep an eye on her tho while there to make sure she isnt doing something incorrectly that will get her hurt. Other than that I let her do whatever it is she wants to do that day.

    I am 6'4 and a bruiser.

    She is 5'1 and a feather

    The one time she went to gym with me.....she saw me putting 20 kg plate on each side for a warm up set and said "is that too much hun ...dont strain yourself....

    At that point it was clear we did not belong int he same gym at the same time. Plus I got serious hots for her. Hard to concentrate on reps when I am wanting to go lock us in the bathroom together.

    That's a strong negative. I vote no. Because if you're working out WITH your girlfriend you will need to keep unloading and reloading YOUR weights, god bless her heart tho.

    My wife will come to the gym usually once (sometimes twice) a week. She doesn't do much strength training. About 95% of her routine is cardio - she does cardio 4 days a week at home.

    I don't have a problem with her coming to the gym with me. She does her thing, I do mine.

    When I had a gf, we'd go to the gym together. She would spot me on the bench but after that she'd go do her own stuff and I'd do mine. Leg days I didn't see her until one of us was done

    Even if i had one i doubt she would want to lift in the way that i do, they seem to think theyll become hulk status over night.

    i like being in the gym with her - the occasional check out reminds me (one reason) why i do this. that being said, we each have our routine and are all business. wish i could do it more with her.

    wife just started going to the gym with me to lift 3 weeks ago. she always just ran in the past (which i do with her on 1 of my off days), but got interested in toning up. I still wear my headphones and we only talk about how to do a movement, reps or sets. she helps load/unload weight and i figured out a trick...if i put her weight on the inside, i move less plates around.

    shes also the hottest female in the gym, so it makes it a little easier lol

    My wife used to come to the gym over the years in spurts, we have trained together in the past, but I prefer to train alone. Now I would rather not see her at the gym at the same time as me, that is my time away, my sanctuary, I see enough of her at home.
