Have you committed to a healthier you in 2015? Often we find ourselves caught up in daily requirements and quickly forget about our gym schedule. Why not grab a workout buddy to keep us motivated and remind us of our commitment?
We’ve always heard that there’s strength in numbers. And, yes, having a workout buddy supports that notion because they keep us motivated, hold us accountable, and can even share in some financial responsibilities.
We are social beings, seeking companionship and often praise from others. Their encouragement keeps us motivated to continue striving to achieve and surpass our personal threshold and stated goals. Working out with someone else will undoubtedly keep us both going!
Friends Don’t Let Friends Not Exercise (Cheryl & Pham)
Our resolve to workout may start off strong but often diminishes as months pass. It’s easier to dismiss a planned trip to the gym if we’re not meeting up with someone to workout. Having someone else hold us accountable for our commitments and actions is a smart strategy for manifesting our intentions into accomplishments.
Sometimes signing a contract with a gym can be a significant financial commitment. Snap Fitness has a Joint Membership option that is ideal for the buddy system. Rather than paying the $34.95 for a single monthly membership, why not save a little with a Joint Membership for just $49.95? Having a Joint Membership and committing to working out with someone means that both individuals are more likely to keep those workout sessions because each buddy is contributing time and money.
