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. Even if you find you work better on your own, the right workout partner can force you to tap into those extra reserves of strength and energy so that you push through a few extra reps. The right workout buddy helps you give it your all, and if you want great results then you’ve got to give it everything you’ve got: you get out, what you put in.

Benefits of Having a Good Workout Buddy

ITS FUN

You can get a serious workout, without being serious – it’s okay to have fun. In fact, the more fun your workouts are, the more you’re going to look forward to and be commited to them over the long-term. There’s absolutely no doubt that the right workout buddy can make your workouts more fun. Working out alone can be lonely, so just having that social contact – being able to laugh, encourage and motivate – will make them much more enjoyable.

YOU'LL STICK AT IT

It’s one thing bailing on your own workout, but it’s much, much harder to ditch a workout when you know you’re going to be letting your workout buddy down – not to mention the heat you’re going to get when you see them again. In addition to this, having a workout partner means you have to plan your workouts in advance to meet each other’s schedules, and once it’s down on paper and scheduled, it’s much more likely that you’re going to follow through with it.

IT BOOSTS YOUR CONFIDENCE

Starting out on any fitness or llifestyle programme can be daunting, but if you have a buddy or two supporting you, the process can be far less intimidating. The right workout buddy will help you to reach your goals and push you to do those extra few reps.

YOU'LL GET RESULTS.

A little healthy rivalry between friends and family is no bad thing. And if your workout buddy is a little fitter than you, it might motivate you to work harder, especially if they're giving you lots of encouragment.

MOTIVATES AND SUPPORTS YOU

For most people, having someone in your corner makes a huge difference to how motivated you are. Having a good workout buddy, who motivates and supports you will boost your commitment to your fitness goals and your confidence that you can achieve them.

Those are a few simple benefits of getting yourself a workout partner, and if you took a moment, you could probably come up with a handful more. The point is: having a good workout buddy is going to propel you much further towards your fitness goals, faster than if you go it alone.
