8 Reasons Why You Should Exercise with a Buddy!

Jun 13, 2013

Working out alone all the time can be a bit of a bore, but working out with a buddy can make it seem less like a chore!! (Cheesy, I know, but I had to get your attention somehow...) PACK classes are a great way to have fun and get your heart rate up!

Here's 8 Reasons Why You Should Exercise with a Buddy!

  1. Extra Motivation. About 75% of those who exercise do so alone, and sometimes, you just need a little extra push to get through that workout.
  2. A bit of competitive spirit can help boost your energy during a workout if you’re feeling like you are in a bit of a slump.
  3. Helps keep you accountable and on track. After all, you don’t want to let down your partner, right?
  4. Makes working out seem less daunting! Studies were conducted where both individuals and pairs of friends were asked to rate their perception of difficulty of a hill, and the teams rated the hill much less difficult than the solo exercisers.
  5. Makes personal training more affordable. This is where PACK here at Fitness Together is really convenient to do, as we offer many sessions Monday through Saturday.
  6. You work harder (See #1 & 2)!
  7. The fun factor. When you exercise with a friend, usually the conversation is good, and you don’t even realize how much time has passed, and you’ve completed your workout!
  8. A consistent workout buddy (or a few!) will have a positive influence on you! Staying consistent with your exercise routine will keep you fit, healthy, and on track to reaching your goals.
