Want the Best Workout Results? Invite a Coworker!
The trend this summer throughout Brevard County without a doubt is getting in better shape. People everywhere are looking for a fitness club to join, ready to finally make good on that New Years’ Resolution to get a dream body. It just takes the motivation to begin and to keep going until you’ve achieved what you set out to do.
When it comes to motivation, it’s easy to get amped up thinking about a goal. For some, it’s even easy to get started. But for many people, it’s another thing entirely to keep the motivation going long term.
The drive we feel can sometimes lose gas as the days and weeks pass by.
The number one reason why so many people begin to lose motivation is the lack of accountability. Having someone to express your goal to creates a goal you are now obligated to live up to. After all, someone else is not only expecting to see the results; they are actually with you every day witnessing how you achieve the results.
And the benefits to working out with a friend or coworker don’t end there.
Additional Benefits of Working Out with a Partner
Fun – Let’s face it, working out alone can sometimes feel unenjoyable. Even when we are in a fun environment, without someone there to share in the activity, it can be hard to enjoy the moment. Working out with a partner adds levity to key moments, providing excitement and a little comic relief when it’s needed.
Mutual goals – Remember, it’s not just your goals being sought after here. When you are working out with a partner, you are sharing mutual goals. The help and motivation you provide will be given back to you. You each feed off each other’s motivation, building it up and making your mutual goals a reality.
Reliance – Someone else is relying on you just as much as you are relying on him or her. This can be the push one needs to get off the couch and into the gym. If you decide not to budge, you’re not just letting yourself down, you are letting someone else down. This can provide the motivation you need to remember that this is a team effort. It’s not just about you anymore.
Friendly Competition – Nothing is better than a little friendly competition! A few extra reps here or there may prompt a retaliatory response and a little smirk. But wait a minute: Now it’s your turn.
