Find a partner in crime!
Having a workout partner can mean the difference between success and failure in achieving your goals. Working out with someone can significantly help you achieve your fitness goals. Unless you're consistently a highly motivated self-starter, your chances of sticking to a long-term fitness plan without a partner are significantly lower than they are with a partner.
Why is working out with a partner better than not? Several reasons:
1. Workout more with less cancelled workouts
When having a fitness pal you have more than just yourself to be accountable to. No more excuses for why you can't go yourself; you're too hungry, you're too tired, you've had a long day, etc. Those excuses would be silly to tell a person why they can't workout today.
2. Workout harder and faster than before
Individual workouts can seem like a lot of time and effort. With a partner to workout with and complete homework routines, you'll be able to ask questions, do one more rep than before, and be able to talk and unwind from everyday stress.
3. You can finally afford a personal trainer
Think about it, if you split a healthy appetizer with your date, you don't have to pay double for it. Couples & Buddy Personal Training is more affordable than specialized individual personal training. However, one-on-one personal training is always there if you need that individualized in-home personal training program.
4. Thinner, Happier Friends
Researchers at Harvard University found that you can "catch" obesity (along with smoking habits and happiness) because it spreads like an infectious disease. The experts found that a person's risk of becoming obese rises by two percent for every five obese social contacts they have. If you're surrounded by people who are active and eat well, there's a good chance you're going to do the same.
5. Celebrate your successes!
