The proven benefits of training with a friend.
Sometimes even the best of us lose motivation and struggle to bring ourselves to exercise regularly that is why having a friend who wants to train with us makes the workout process a lot more fun, tolerable and not to mention creates consistency to your training routine.
Here are the top reasons why you should have a training buddy:
- It keeps us accountable and limits our excuses as you don’t want to let your friend down
- We develop confidence by having our friend by our side as we can try new exercises and attend new classes with them
- The sessions are fun as you are spending time with your friend and being social therefore more likely to commit long term
- You will motivate and support one another as you will push each other for that extra rep, extra distance as it becomes a healthy competition between you both
So if the above creates a successful outcome to your training regime why wouldn’t you find a friend?
