The secret to fitness success

What If I told you

There was an easy way to create space and time in your busy schedule for workouts.

There was a proven method to get you out of a rut or a plateau in your training.

There was a fool-proof system for doubling your fitness success.

It isn’t found in a scoop of some hard to pronounce powdered supplement nor is it some new type of “athleisurewear” or a fancy new app.

The answer is a workout buddy

Why? It’s simple. ACCOUNTABILITY!

Having someone else to workout with means you’ll show up and keep showing up.

Humans are social animals

We seek the company and positive reinforcement of others, especially when we are engaged in physical or mental activity in order to achieve a result.

A 2011 study published in Psychology of Sport and Exercise found that the exercise habits of people you know have a positive influence on your exercise habits.

Workout buddies provide a powerful combination of support, motivation, and in some cases, healthy competition.

Workout buddies generally fall into one of three categories

The Dynamic Duo

These are typically friends or colleagues, who train together one-on-one and have developed a regular routine for fitness activities.

The Group Effort

This is collective of people who work out at the same pre-appointed time and place as a group, typically but not always with a trainer, such as STRONGCorps Group Training or RUNCorps Run Club.

The Coupled Pair

These are your romantic partnerships, a married couple for example, who pursue their fitness activities together and may or may not do the same workout, but they block off time and space for being active as a couple.

Find the collaboration that works for you

Then get to setting a routine.

You’ll gain the motivation not only to do just one more set, one more lap or one more minute but to get out of the house when you are feeling demotivated and uninspired. You’ll find the inspiration to push past that feeling of wanting to quit and reap the rewards as a result!
