Her Regular Gym Partner Went on Vacation, but Once She’d Trained With Her Husband, She Realized She Didn’t Want to Go With Anyone Else

A woman recently shared a story online about an awkward situation with a friend. The pair had been gym buddies for a while, but when her friend went on holiday, she found she preferred to work out with her husband. Here’s what she had to say.

The woman wrote, “I started going to the gym in November last year. My friend, Ice, was complaining a lot about gaining weight, so I encouraged her to come with me.”

“She said she would, but it took another five months before she did,” she added. “Now, because of changes in my work, I’ve had to move to a different gym near where my husband works.”

Ice went on vacation for a month. During that time, the woman and her husband started working out together. They pushed and encouraged each other and began to feel the benefits.

The woman posted some of her workout pictures and videos on social media. Ice saw her posts and said that she was rearing to get back and work out with the couple.

The problem is that the woman really enjoyed the time with her husband. Even simple things like grabbing a bite to eat together after their workout were fun. It was a bonding experience, and they didn’t want to share it with others.

Busy lives

Her husband works long hours. When they carved out a little time for each other, it was a real treat. However, letting Ice down wasn’t as simple as it seemed.

The big problem was that Ice was sensitive about being excluded. Once, their friend group had a spontaneous dinner when Ice was out of town.

When Ice heard about the dinner, she assumed they had planned it all behind her back and flew off the handle.

After the misunderstanding with Ice, the woman’s friend group was very cautious about planning events together. They always made sure that Ice was around when they scheduled social time.

The woman was in a difficult spot. She didn’t want to exclude Ice or make her feel overlooked. But likewise, she didn’t want to give up these precious moments with her husband.

Was she in the right?

Was it right to tell Ice that she couldn’t go to the gym with her and her husband? The woman wasn’t sure, so she wrote to an online forum and asked for advice. She got some supportive responses.

One poster replied, “You aren’t talking about your friend group; this involves your husband. Just tell her that you and your husband are counting the gym as alone time, and she is not invited. Unless she is completely clueless, this should not be a problem.”

While another commenter said, “Why in the world can’t this person go to the gym on her own?”
