It’s cold. It’s dark. The festive season is only just getting started and already most of us are bored with it. This is definitely a challenging time of year to keep up activity levels.
When it’s cold out there and you want to stay at home, an appointment to meet a friend is a great incentive to get off the sofa. Combine that meeting with some exercise and you get fitness as well as friendship.
Planning in advance is even better – none of us like to let down a friend. When someone else is relying on you to turn up, the path of least-resistance is to do just that and turn up!
A fitness partner won’t just make sure you turn up – they can also improve the quality of your workout as well. Whether it is being a spotter for weights, a trustworthy partner for pairs resistance exercises or simply someone to chat with while running, fitness with a friend works much better.
If you need convincing, check out this list of reasons to work out with a partner.
