Train Together, Stay Together
Friends help put a fun spin on everything – college, travel plans, birthdays, they make most of our experiences a joyride. Working out with a friend is not only exciting, but also super effective, here’s why:
Going the extra mile is more fun when working out with a friend. There’s an element of curiosity about who can perform what workouts better, along with a sense of playfulness turning your workouts into entertaining and stimulating contests.
A Personal Trainer
The instructor isn’t the only one who’s got your back. So does your friend. Knowing what approach works best for each other, you show your support through care and concern, or humour, ensuring that at the end of the day you’ve both made progress.
No More Excuses
Synced with the same goal in mind, it becomes easier to avoid slacking off as you turn out to be each other’s workout reminders. Being with a person you enjoy spending time with also directly translates into your workout as you try to push yourself past your limits, with your friend supporting you at every step.
Lesser Recovery Time
Working out with a friend also results in lesser recovery time with even a simple time-out turning into a fun and energizing session. A spin buddy would also motivate you to snack healthy during your break time.
Observing how you complement each other in spin class can also enhance your friendship. The time spent together in spin class can turn out to be an experience that the two of you cherish for a long time.
