Don’t get me wrong, I love working out by myself. Long runs with just me and my music are great therapy. But, working out with friends has its perks too! Here are the benefits of working out with friends, besides much-needed girl time.
Accountability: When you are forced to schedule your workout ahead of time or don’t want to cancel on friends, it is a great way to stay accountable!
Motivation: When the going gets tough, your buds can provide that extra boost of energy! We all have those days when the last thing we want to do is work out, so having a friend to get you off your tush and into the gym is always a bonus.
Learn more exercises: Your friends can teach you new moves and ways to work out! I love mixing up my exercise routines. They can teach how to use different machines at the gym or they can show you new fitness classes that you would never have known about if it weren’t for them!
Healthy competition: Everyone knows you work harder when you are competing against someone! 😉
It’s more fun!: Working out with a friend is just downright fun.
Get up, grab a friend, and hit the gym.
