FRIEND BENEFITS. Get the benefits of working out with a friend.

Reap the benefits of a workout buddy this fall. Along with the social benefits, you’ll get so much more. A friend helps you:

Embrace Commitment Scheduling a workout with a friend helps hold you accountable to your scheduled gym time. Meeting a buddy at the gym not only motivates you to show up, it forces you to complete the intended workout and intensity while you are there.

Brave new things A friend can help take the intimidation factor away from trying something new. You’ll get the support and confidence you need while navigating your way through new skills, new found muscle groups or getting comfortable in unfamiliar parts of the gym.

Push the limits Exercising with a partner pushes you to work the best of your ability. And when you work out with a partner who is stronger or faster than you, it can motivate you to test your limits.

Work out longer Time flies when you’re having fun… and distracted. Having someone to chat with helps focus on your conversation instead of the workout and makes the time go by quickly.

Go back for more If you loved your social time during your work out, you are likely to set up your next work out session before you leave the gym!

Be your friends best motivation, and they’ll be yours.
