Question Workout Buddies

Anyone in the Garland/Plano/Richardson area that needs a workout partner? I need one and just wanted to see if anyone would be interested. It's kinda boring working out alone.
Thanks-

I like working out alone - keeps me from getting distracted - and I can't stand small talk while I'm focusing on something.

it's nice having a partner who doesn't talk much. i don't like all the small talk either but i like having someone i know there, i always push myself more that way.

If you are both focused in the gym a workout partner is one of the best ways to "kick it up a notch". Even somebody on a different level of training can be quite motivational, and having a trusted spot is a great way to safely push your limits. I used to train with a 105lb friend of mine, and though our goals where a bit different, we both kept tabs on each other and new when the other was slacking off or having and "off" day. Knowing that someone is gonna realize you aren't giving 100% is a great motivator.

Then again she had a pretty good jaw on her, but I didn't seem to mind the rest.

i agree- Al and I usually workout together, but we don't chat much at the gym. We are there to workout, not have a conversation. It already takes a couple of hours as it is (racking weights as we take turns etc.), so small talk would just add to the time. I like to go in there, get my shit done and go. I hate when people come in there to socialize and talk. A partner is good, but I prefer a silent partner.
