Are you someone who has trouble focusing and sticking to a workout schedule? It turns out that you’re far from the only person who struggles with this. Millions of people around the world have this exact issue. They hatch a fitness plan, commit to it, start it, and then fail to follow through. Some people get so down after not sticking to their plan that they end up just giving up. If you don’t want that to be you, here’s one option that may help: get a workout buddy.


Your workout buddy doesn’t have to be a world class trainer. They don’t even have to know what they’re doing. As long as they’re your peer who has a similar mindset as you, you’re good to go. The main point is that you two will be able to hold the other one accountable for not fulfilling your goals. This will help you get things done!

It’s More Fun

In addition to accountability, the best thing about having a workout buddy is that your fitness routines are a lot more fun. When your routines are more enjoyable, it goes without saying that you’re a lot more likely to stay true to them.
