Buddy up

It’s better to work out with a friend

Some people need a little push to get moving; if you’re one of them, finding a reliable, positive workout buddy can give your fitness routine a boost, according to Fitday.com. Here’s why:

Adding a social element makes time goes by faster. If you’re chatting with your friend between sets, you aren’t watching the clock.

You won’t skip workouts. Nobody wants to let down a friend, so you’ll be more likely to make time and find energy.

A buddy offers a different perspective. It’s difficult to recognize personal gains over time; your buddy’s objective view will help validate your progress and keep you motivated.

You’ll celebrate achievements together and then set new goals. Also, it looks super weird to high-five yourself.
