Friends don’t let friends sit on the couch!

Home / QT Inspiration / Friends don’t let friends sit on the couch!

Friends provide a kind of motivation and competition that you just can’t get when you’re exercising alone. Workout partners keep you accountable by meeting you at the gym after a long day and they push you to work harder so you can match their effort. Having a fit friend helps keep you on track and that means reaching your goals quicker.

You’re far more likely to actually workout when (1) you’re forced to schedule it ahead of time and (2) cancelling means inconveniencing a friend. Making concrete plans with a friend means you’ll be far less likely to cancel in favor of the couch and after a few weeks of working out together your routine will be second nature.

In addition to keeping you accountable, friends can provide an extra boost of motivation when it gets tough. Everyone has those days when they just don’t feel like going to the gym and those times when they want to call it quits, friends can offer encouragement to keep you going. Just be sure to return the favor.
