Workout Buddy – 3 Questions That Will Prove You’ve Found the Right One
A few of our fitness pro pals filled us in on a few reflective questions that can help. In regards to a potential workout buddy ask yourself:
- Will this person be able to meet in order to workout on a regular basis? Remember consistency is major key to getting in shape. Moreover, if someone is flaky they are not for you!
- Is this person supportive or quite discouraging when it comes to your fitness goals? Any one who projects negativity or laughs at your goals does not need to be around while you are in the process off becoming an even better, healthier you. Negativity can zap your energy as well as inner motivation. Therefore, ignore or cut off the haters. Misery loves company and everyone like that can set at their own table.
- Will your buddy be able to not only keep up, but push you to work harder during workouts? A great workout buddy will not just be another talking head, but a friendly a dedicated pal to light a fire under you when things start to feel a little “lazy.” That type of person will not allow you to settle for mediocre.
Know of someone? Good! Use the above criteria when making your final selection and you as well as your future fitness buddy will be on your way to getting fit and toned!
