Exercise Buddies

 

Engage your partner or friend in exercising for optimum weight loss. When two people commit to working out together the results are usually better than when we try to do it on our own. A major factor in successful weight loss is support and encouragement.

Safety in Numbers

Besides the benefit of weight loss, working out with a friend or partner also provides safety. It is much safer to work out with someone else than alone, whether you are lifting weights or jogging through the park.

Good for Your Relationship

Besides the weight loss factor, another benefit of working out with a friend or partner is that it benefits your relationship. When you work out together you are spending quality time that you might not otherwise get. Sometimes that ten or twenty minutes a day is the only alone time you get with that person. Use it to work on your weight loss as well as building your relationship.

Avoid the Blahs

Another benefit to working out with a friend or partner is that you avoid the work out blahs by sharing your favorite types of workout with each other. Not only do you learn new ways to exercise but it balances out your workout regimen for overall fitness. You may find that your weight loss actually increases as you switch up your work out routines.

Workout Options

There are many different workout activities you and your partner or friend can participate in as you pursue your weight loss goals. Convince your partner or friend to join a gym, go hiking, jogging, cycling or walking. Designate a day, place, and time. If you establish the specifics surrounding your workout and place it on your calendar or in your planner, you are more likely to follow through with your workout plan.

Support and Encouragement

One of the greatest success factors in weight loss is staying motivated. If you are motivated to work out then you will most likely exercise. If you have an established accountability partner who will support and encourage you and make sure you stick to working out, you will be successful in your weight loss endeavors.
