Strength in Numbers, Working out with a Partner

            We all have those days, the long days, where it can be almost impossible to get the exercise we need. From the most seasoned athlete to the average enthusiast no one is stranger to this struggle. However, on the toughest of days, one way to combat this is to start exercising with a partner.

A phone call or a scheduled arrangement to work out with a friend, can help you get into the routine of getting consistent exercise, none the less with great company! Once you begin working out with a friend, there’s a sense that you will each be there to motivate and support each other throughout the experience.

Whether this be pushing each other to get those last reps, or run the last kilometre, all the way to helping your partner spot weights and cheer you on through any set or distance. Another reason working out with a buddy can be great is because they will share a level of accountability that just wouldn’t be there when you are alone. On the days you struggle to get going a partner can really make sure you are sticking to you plans and achieving your fitness goals.

Working out with a partner can also be beneficial to beginners as it will help one build confidence in the gym, especially if the partner has some experience in fitness or exercising. Like in any sport or activity, learning from someone with the knowledge you wish to obtain is the fastest and smartest way to improve. Overall choosing to bring a buddy to the gym can have some positive effects to your fitness motivation, dedication and understanding in the gym or on the track. So next time you lace up the gym shoes or can’t bring yourself to lace them up, give your friend a call and get stronger together!
