From wine and cheese to peanut butter and jelly, some things are just better in pairs. The same is true for your workout. Exercising with a partner can help get you motivated and ensure that you stick with your exercise program. There are a number of benefits to partner training. Let’s take a look at the top five.
It’s easy to skip your workout when there’s no one counting on you. If you know you’ll be letting someone down, you’ll be much more likely to show up. Working out with a partner gives you a reason to get fit and inspires you to work harder to reach your fitness goals.
Enjoy Your Workouts More
Getting fit is a lot more fun with a friend. Exercising with a partner allows you to build meaningful relationships while encouraging each other to keep going. As an added bonus, spending time with a friend makes the time melt away.
More Affordable Than Working Out Alone
A personal trainer can help you develop an exercise plan for your individual needs. They can help you achieve your fitness goals while preventing injury. Unfortunately, many individuals don’t have the money to spend on a personal trainer. Splitting the cost with a partner allows you to reap the benefits of personal training without having to pay for it yourself.
Always Have Someone to Spot You
It can be awkward to ask strangers to spot you. When you exercise with a partner, you’ll always have a spotter you can rely on. Your partner can also help you improve your form and inspire you to push yourself harder.
Burn More Calories
Studies have shown that people that workout with a friend burn around 41 calories more per session than people who exercise alone. Partner training is more fun and more effective than individual training.
