3 Ways Finding a Gym Buddy Helps Your Workout
We all love friends, but finding a buddy or partner for the gym can be really important for your success while working out, as well as having fun while you’re doing it!
However much you love going to the gym, we all have those days when it’s just really hard to motivate yourself to get there. Whether it’s because of a long, stressful day at work or because you fancy a lazy weekend, having a gym buddy will give you that extra incentive to get down there and work out!
No matter what your goals are at the gym – from slimming down to bulking up – form when working out is always important, not just for the success of the individual exercise but for your long-term health and wellbeing. Poor form can lead to torn muscles, whereas good form is really important for gaining real strength in your muscles over time- especially in your core.
Back to where we started – with how great it is to have friends. Friends at the gym not only give you more motivation to hit that one more rep or hang in there on the treadmill for one more minute but they’re also there just to discuss your day, laugh about football or chat about your friends.
Ok, fine – you’ve convinced me. I should get a gym buddy. But how? Most of my friends live on the other side of town and already have their own gyms. I don’t want to go with anyone from work (I already have to spend all day with them!)
Well, luckily for you, there is an easy way. SportsFixer is an app that means you can make friends with other people who use the same gym as you. Chat, organise your meet-ups and even book a class or a squash court all in one place.
