I’ve experienced working out alone and with partners over the years and I can say that working out with a partner wins hands down. At times working out alone has its benefits, but in the long run you’ll be happier if you get a partner and here is why.
- Because working out alone sucks: If you have ever tried to workout by yourself it’s fine for a while, maybe even a long while, but eventually you’ll start to wish someone was around. When the weights start talking back its time to find a partner.
- You need someone to motivate you: I am a self-starter and have all the motivation in the world, but if I have a partner there egging me on it pushes me to keep going, especially on those days I feel like vegging on the couch. I also am more likely to stick to working out if I know I’m accountable to someone else.
