The 30-Day Weight Loss Challenge That Actually Works

Day 21: Find an exercise buddy

Like everything else in life, exercise is better with friends. Exercising with a friend not only makes your workouts more enjoyable, but also makes it easier to meet your weight-loss goals. An exercise buddy can help you stay on track and stay motivated. If you ever feel tempted to skip out on your daily workout, then having a regular exercise partner can be very useful. You’re far less likely to bail on your gym session if you know your friend is there waiting for you! Having an exercise buddy makes it easier, and more fun, to commit to a fitness routine.

A little friendly competition can inspire you to work harder, pushing you to achieve your fitness goals. Exercising with a friend, family member, coworker, romantic partner, or acquaintance is also a great way to multitask. You don’t need to sacrifice your social life in order to get in shape. Working out with a buddy is a great way to get fit and be social.
