Why Working Out with a Buddy is a Benefit

By September 26, 2018 Membership

You would come in everyday to workout, but for some reason you felt like you’re in a rut. Soon you start making excuses to not come in as often and then you stop coming all together. We’ve heard about this from multiple members, but there has been one key component that we’ve heard that got those members to come back and enjoy working out again.

That component is working out with a friend! It may have been that longtime friend, co-worker or another person you’ve met in class; we’ve heard them all. And, we encourage it! There are many great benefits that come into play when you work out with your buddy.

The first benefit is that you hold each other accountable. You plan every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to come over your lunch break to meet to go to Body Pump Express. You can’t just back out on your friend last minute! You’re stuck to it.

The second benefit is that you get pushed out of your comfort zone. But, you’re okay with that since you’re not doing it alone! Your buddy may have a new workout routine they want to try that may seem a little above your level, but together you can get through it.

The third benefit is that you are going to have more fun! When you’re not going through the workout all alone you actually feel time fly and boom you’re done. And, along the way you had laughs and maybe a little dance session with the song that came over the speakers. If it’s all in-between reps, there’s no harm in that!

The fourth benefit and the best one (we think) is that you each get a referral gift if your buddy joins as a member! Our referral gifts vary throughout the year and go up to $50.00 in value. When your friend mentions your name at the time they joined they get a gift and then we reach out to you to give you yours! Isn’t that neat? We think so. So, the next time you feel like you’re getting in the rut of working out maybe suggest to your friend to join you. We offer a free trial pass to any new potential members and don’t forget if they do join have them mention your name!
