Engaging Family and Friends in Your Workouts:

By Body1 min read

We all know doing things with people we like can be really fun. AND when we have people to be accountable to we often do a better job of getting our goals done. When you set up a workout buddy – someone to check in with, meet at the 6am workout class, or do fun rides with you are more likely to follow through on those plans instead of hit the snooze one more time.

Just for fun … but maybe Chandler isn’t the best workout buddy after all …

It can be as simple as telling a friend or supportive family member about your plans, dreams, and goals. Then asking them the check in with you regularly so you aren’t tempted to skate over the difficult parts or ignore problems.

Plus, when you have someone to share your successes with it helps you deepen your commitment to your goals. Who will you put in your corner to make fitness more fun?
