Having someone to share the commitment of regular exercise with can help you succeed. It’s easier to miss a walk or a session at the gym when there’s no one waiting for you. And if you keep turning up to exercise, you will feel better for it.
Not everyone is comfortable with the competition that can arise during partner workouts. When you are competing for a positive goal, however, a little competition can be a great motivator.
Our mobile app will help to monitor your progress and allow you to share your results so that your friends and family can cheer you on. If you prefer to have a real live person to exercise with, there are a number of ways you can find people.
Ask friends and family members if they would be interested in getting fit. If not, you could ask them if they know anyone who would like to join you.
You might also like to get some advice from a personal trainer. A professional trainer will provide you with motivation at the same time as ensuring that you’re always moving towards your fitness objectives.
Healthy Competition to Stay Healthy
Nurturing a competitive streak can push you to try that bit harder every time you train; to do one extra push-up, five more squats, or 30 more seconds in plank position. Just be careful to pace yourself.
Of course, it is possible to work out alone, but exercising with a partner helps you both to maintain focus. You’re less likely to consider cutting corners if someone is looking. And training can be more satisfying when you have someone to cheer you on.
When you train with a partner, you also get to celebrate your achievements together, big and small. Working out with a partner helps keep people motivated, increasing the effort going in and helping them to achieve their goals. When you’re done exercising, you have someone to hang out with!
You and your partner may not be equally matched weight for weight, or you may have different fitness levels and objectives, but setting goals together means that you can compare whether or not you’ve met your individual targets. They can help you to be realistic when setting the goals and, ultimately, you have the wonderful satisfaction of sharing successes!
