Get a Workout Buddy
People exercise for an average of 34 minutes longer with a friend than they do when they hit the gym solo, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.
And the longer you sweat, the more quickly you'll reach your goals!
Having someone you are responsible to insures that even on those, "I don't wanna get outta bed days," you will to assist and encourage your workout buddy.
There is another asset. Apres-workout!
Those of us who ski, even those Snow-Bunnies & Snow-Hares, know very well that part of the skiing experience is STOPPING. Pulling up in a big fluffy chair, in front of a roaring fire place, with a grog or three.
Well after our regular workout that same R&R is necessary to settle our muscles and nerves, communicate with like-minded friends, have a beverage or two, and just laugh & socialize. That BIG FLUFFY HUG that say ya' did good.
So where are these miracle workers. Here are two links, you can quickly read on the dreadmill, that will provide some direction in finding your workout buddy.
A side note: Due to the pandemic many gyms are closed. My Daughter-in-Law has what I think is a brilliant idea to over come that hurdle. And maintain her workout buddy communications. (And most of her ideas are brilliant. Just sayin')
SKYPE, ZOOM, MEETINGS, And other teleconference web platforms.
She and her two buddies "Conf." from "home", or wherever they are set to workout. Then during the workout they continue to offer encouragement to each other to at least finish their 45.
Apres-Workout usually consist of a healthy replenishing snack, a few drinks & "Gossip & Giggles" (their term not mine). After some "OURS" time they all log off and return to whatever is the lockdown/isolation normal ofthe moment.
