6 POWERFUL BENEFITS OF HAVING A WORKOUT PARTNER
Starting a new health and fitness regime can be intimidating so grab your best friend & lets do it together! Here are the top 6 reasons why training with a workout partner is an excellent idea.
The process of actually deciding to get out of bed to attend your training session can be so tough. It’s just too easy to convince yourself it’s a good idea to skip the session. When you have a workout partner, you’re not only letting yourself down by not attending, you’re letting down your mate. You are accountable to your training buddy and you are much more likely to show up and get results together.
I love clients that bring their children to train with them. What better way to set a good example, have some quality time together & create fun memories!
Not only will you be more likely to show up with your buddy, but your partner will also motivate you to have a energy boost! Training side by side with you workout partner will give you the motivation to push a lot harder than you would on your own, leading to a much more intense session. And when it comes to socializing, a workout date is much better than a “happy hour date”. Burn calories while you hang out together vs. ingesting calories!
Having a training buddy turns what might feel like a chore into a social event. With everyone’s busy schedules, it’s getting tougher to stay in touch so why not kill two birds with one stone. Also, when the going gets tough its good to have your workout partner beside you… to complain about how hard the session is and to call the trainer a big meanie!
Recruiting professionals to help you achieve your fitness goals can be a potentially pricey prospect. Personal Training in particular can be financially out of reach some, but its such a wise investment in you! Why not get your workout partner on board and pool your resources? The cost per person for small group PT works out to be great value as well as providing all the benefits listed above.
One of the biggest barriers to exercise is a lack of confidence. Many people may feel embarrassed about your level of fitness or worried about your body image. Having a trusted friend by your side can ease some of these concerns. You can buffer each other’s anxiety and enjoy trying something new together.
