How are you doing with your 2017 goals/resolutions? Are you still on track? Have you called it quits? Or are you struggling to stay with them and need a little motivation?
I know that a lot of people resolve to exercise so that they can stay in shape, or get in shape. I know for personal experience that often it’s hard to stay motivated, especially if it wasn’t already part of your normal, daily routine. For some people, exercise is part of life and they can’t go a day with out it. For others, it’s not that easy.
Sometimes all you need is someone to work out with you. I know that I tend to work out more when I have someone with me to talk with (it makes time go by a lot quicker).
Here are some reasons why you should get yourself a work out buddy from Pedro Ast, CEO of www.Bvddy.com.
It’s easier to stay motivated and on track with your fitness goals.
This is because having regular workout times with a buddy help you work harder and push through your routines. Having someone around that holds you accountable for doing the most important thing to show up and not skip a day just because “you don’t feel like it” makes it easier to stay on track with your goals.
It’s more fun to have a buddy around.
When training alone is easier to get bored if not fully feeling it that day. This is why having a buddy around makes it more fun and easier to share moments throughout your routines that makes both of you laugh. Before you know it, if you are having fun time will fly.
Sports bring people closer.
When sharing a sweat, tough workout or even a bad day at the gym or court allows for a closer bond to form between friends. The social interaction that occurs when working out with a friend creates a strong connection that makes that friendship stronger. Especially after those tough routines were you want to give up but your buddy makes you pull through it.
You push each other.
When you workout with a buddy it’s easier to not give up and continue to push your limits to get better because they give you that extra motivation when you most need it. Also having someone to compete with in different exercises or routines, who lifts more or who can run quicker, provides healthy competition that allows for you to continue to push your limits and get better.
You’ll meet your goals faster.
This is because with a buddy you will end up being more consistent and pushing yourself harder. Leading to you seeing results and achieving your goals, which give you additional motivation to set new ones.
