What you need is a workout buddy, NOW!
Can’t get yourself to the gym? Unmotivated? Boring? Cheating on your nutrition? Fitness is important to you, and you always promise yourself you’ll get it going, but…….. What you need is a Workout Buddy!!! … ASAP!!!
Here are 5 reasons why you need a workout buddy, now!
“Exercising together is not always a case of competing; sometimes all we need is a little encouragement to keep going.”
1: You Will Actually Show Up!
Some days for many reasons you just don’t feel like working out. Some days the weather is miserable or you just had a bad day. In these cases, the temptation to blow off your workout, get comfortable at home and skip the exercising, especially when you only have to come up with an excuse for yourself. HOWEVER, nobody likes letting a friend down and it will probably take more than a pathetic excuse to convince your buddy to cancel the planned workout.
2: Competition IS HEALTHY!
Let’s face it; nobody wants to be a loser! While working out together makes both of you winners, no-one really wants to be that person who finishes that last rep ….. well last!! If your buddy doesn’t want to be last and you don’t either then you both better burn some extra calories!
3: Time flies when you’re having fun!
Everyone knows that time appears to pass much faster when you are enjoying yourself. This is no different when you work out with someone. While it is important to stay focused, having someone to talk to whilst going through your routines together means that you are spending more time working out, without even realizing it.
4: Come On! You Got This!
“You can do this ! Just 1 More push-up!” Exercising together is not always a case of competing; sometimes all we need is a little encouragement to keep going.
5: Accountability is Key!
With a solid workout buddy you can never get away with “I’m doing everything right, but my body fat just won’t go down”; you don’t even have to say it because your buddy’s awesome results illustrate how well the nutrition and exercise plan you are both doing works if you stick to it.
So, if your workout partner is getting great results and you are not, then there’s something that they are doing that you are not (and you probably know exactly what it is you can do better)……………………So Get On It!
If you’re struggling with your motivation, or you simply want to squeeze more out of every workout you do, then one of the smartest moves you can make is to get a workout buddy. In fact, having the right workout buddy can often be the difference between failure and success, mediocre results and incredible results.
