This week I was reminded of how important it is to have someone to work out with. With the exception of Saturdays (Mark golfs) I always work out with someone.
Benefits of working out with a friend:
- You hold each other accountable. When Mark slacks off, I kick him in the rear. Vice versa.
- You don’t want to disappoint. Maybe it’s just my personality, but when I start something and someone is watching me and expecting me to finish, I perform better.
- You motivate each other. When I slack, Mark cheers me on. When he struggles, I encourage him to finish. It’s like have a cheerleader by your side.
- You challenge each other. Every time we work out we push each other to take it to the next level. It helps when someone is challenging you.
