workout buddy

Having a workout buddy increases weight loss and motivation.

When choosing a workout buddy keep this in mind; the exercise type, their fitness level, their skill level, and is this a friend or acquaintance that you won’t back out on no matter what?

Whether you’re trying to shed a few pounds or simply maintain a healthy lifestyle, here are some great strategies to find a workout buddy.

A recent study at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine concluded that exercising with aworkout buddy improves weight loss results.

Still not sure if a workout buddy is for you?

I’ve been there too. I’ve had some workout buddies that help me back from my fitness goals, but if you choose a motivated on, they are great for the following!

  • Accountability, they don’t leave you hanging and you don’t leave them hanging.
  • By working out with someone better than you, they will pushes you to work harder and go further.
  • They are there to motivate you during the good and bad times. You are there for them also.

After you have a clear vision of what your ideal workout buddy looks like, now you can go out and find one.

You may have a friend or acquaintance that is perfect, but if you don’t look here:

  • Meetup.com – You can find anything from a local yoga at the park group to meet-ups for exercising with your pets!
  • Groupon – Everyone loves a great deal and you can sign up for anything from horseback riding to rock climbing.
  • You can even do something outside of the normal fitness classes that’s perhaps a bit scary like pole dancing or trapeze.
  • Doing something new creates a bond, then you can strike up a conversation that may be that perfect workout buddy you’ve been looking for.
  • Ask Your Trainer or Coach – They know your fitness level and personality plus know everyone at the gym.
  • Asking them will get you linked up with a workout buddy quick.
  • Reach Out to Friends – This is a great way to spend time with friends, but watch out for chatting too much.
  • Reach Out to Coworkers – Is there a coworker that is interested in healthy living like you?
  • Talk to them at lunch tomorrow and find out what their fitness goals are.
  • What’s great about this workout partner is you see them every day and you have similar schedules.
