When it comes to fitness, what’s your relationship status? If you answered “single” – meaning, you work out alone – you may be missing out. Exercising with a friend or group could help you be more consistent, elevate your fitness program and achieve new goals. Whether you struggle to stay motivated or want to get in better shape, partner or group training could be your answer. Here’s how:
FEWER MISSED WORKOUTS
You’re less likely to blow off the gym when a friend (or an entire group!) is expecting you to show up. As a rule, the more people who know about your fitness program and goals, the greater the chances that you’ll follow through.
TIME GOES FASTER
No more counting the minutes until your workout is over. With a training partner or group, you can say goodbye to boredom. Your exercise sessions will fly by and may even feel fun.
PUSH YOURSELF HARDER
There’s nothing like a little encouragement or healthy competition to get you to go the extra mile. Whether your goal is to master a pull up or crush the Baldy Hill Climb, your partner will be there to challenge and support you.
CHANGE YOUR ROUTINE
If you’re guilty of doing the same workouts over and over, partner or group training is guaranteed to help you bust out of your rut. Changing your exercise routine helps ensure that your body stays challenged, so you get results. For example, if you’re a runner, you could tackle a new route or add sprints or hills – or try a different workout altogether.
BETTER HEALTH HABITS
Your training partner or group just may inspire you to make other positive lifestyle changes, such as cleaning up your diet, cutting back on alcohol or getting more sleep. Healthy habits are contagious!
