Fit Tip: Better Results with a Friend

Monday Morning Fit Tip:



Having a workout partner keeps you accountable.    Some days you’re tired and would just rather be at home.  That would be easy to do if someone wasn’t waiting for you!  And on those days your partner isn’t feeling it, you’ll inspire them!
Once you’re at the gym, your partner can motivate you to work harder and do your best.  You and your partner can inspire each other – pushing through plateaus and trying new exercises or classes.  
Choosing a Partner
It’s best to choose someone with a similar fitness level as you.  You can workout together, progress at a similar pace, and encourage each other as you both become more fit.
Choose someone that has similar goals.  If you are trying to lose weight and your partner is trying to gain weight, it may become difficult to workout together.  This could lead to frustration and make you more likely to give up.
Make sure that you and your partner have things in common outside of the gym.  Pick someone whose company you enjoy so that you look forward to your workouts.
