You start your day keen and motivated, your gym bag is packed and ready for when you finish work but you get to the end of the day and kick your bag under the desk and think, I’ll just go tomorrow.
Having a gym buddy can help for many reasons:
1) Having a buddy to meet will mean it’s not just yourself you are letting down therefore you are more likely to make it to the gym floor or your class.
2) Your natural competitive side will come out and you will work harder with a training buddy.
3) Training with someone who is also tracking your progress helps with encouragement and motivation. Someone to share your success and help you bounce back from failure. You could even set each other’s weekly targets.
4) The fear of trying something new, meeting new people or travelling somewhere alone can be scary. Having your workout buddy with you will help you try new things, build up confidence and keep things fun.
