Fitness Tips: Why You Should Work Out With A Friend

When I first began working out, having Ashleigh there to keep me going was crucial. I never would have remained consistent without her encouraging me and pushing me to keep going. It was our time together to make each other stronger.

The workouts became something I looked forward to. The became my social time, not just my exercise time. Exercising with a friend is not only more fun, but the benefits are endless. One of my biggest fitness tips for you is to find a friend to work out with. Here are just a few reasons why:

You’ll be more motivated.

Working out with a friend keeps you accountable. You’ve got to show up and bring it! Plus, you end up planning those workouts and penciling them into your calendar in advance. Being accountable and needing to show up for someone else also results in fewer skipped workouts, which means…more toning and trimming. You’re far less likely to bail on a friend, than to bail on yourself!

You’ll work out harder.

Working out with a friend pushes you to give your workout everything you’ve got and push past your comfort zone. Plus, during the workout you can commiserate together while still motivating one another. It’s a shared experience of a “hurt so good” burn. In fact, you’ll burn, on average, 41 more calories per session exercising with your plus one than you would solo. Just be mindful of who you choose. You want to partner with someone who will lift you up and encourage you through the workout, and not drag you down mentally and physically.

Your workouts will be more fun.

Not only will you have more fun, recovery time means catch up time! Something to look forward to while working out with a buddy is the fun you’ll have together in a class (or at home doing our online classes), and the time you get afterwards to catch up. Use the buddy system as a time to connect with a friend, try a new format, and reward yourself afterwards. If it’s on a weekend, why not go for a fun healthy brunch afterwards?

Start working out with your friend today and reap the benefits for both your social life and your body!
