Whether you love to get your sweat on with bae, your bestie, colleague or family member, here’s why it’s not only fun, but beneficial to workout with them…
We’ll be the first to hold our hands up and admit that the temptation to cancel a class at the minute is real – because changing out of our loungewear / WFH PJs can seem like a struggle. But it’s been proven that if you book in with a buddy, you’re much more likely to attend the workout as you don’t want to let your buddy down. Plus, as soon as you see your buddy on the screen you'll spur each other on when the going gets tough and push yourself harder. No one wants to be the first one to stop!
It’s safe to say that our social lives have seen better days thanks to lockdown… but who’s to say you can’t bring the fun home? One of the key elements to forming a habit is making it enjoyable. And one of the easiest ways to make fitness fun is to do it with others. Scientists from the University of Southern California found that people who worked out with a friend said they enjoyed it more to those who worked out alone. So make your next workout a social occasion by inviting all your besties!
We love a little [healthy] competition and when it comes to fitness nothing beats seeing your buddy on the screen to spur you on to keep going and push harder (and the phone catch up after to compare notes and celebrate new PB’s makes the sweat worthwhile).
BROADEN YOUR HORIZONS
Desperate to share your love for yoga, but your bestie is a HIIT-it-hard kind of gal? Sharing your workouts together is the perfect excuse to broaden your horizons and get you out of your comfort zones. You might not know what you’re missing out on.
