In our Fitness Friday post series, we hope to give you one tip each week that is helpful to us in reaching our fitness goals.
Exercise is easier with a friend!
Last summer, I participated in a P31 Fitness program. It was great! I loved it! EXCEPT that it was at 5 am. I made it two months and just couldn’t anymore! However, a friend in the class also had issues with 5 am, and we decided to start running together. I had not run regularly in a while and this is just the motivation I needed.
It is so much easier to make myself get up and run (at 7 am, not 5) knowing that someone is counting on me to be there. It’s also a nice time to visit. Getting to meet my exercise goals and talk to a friend at the same time is great!
For the past eight months, I have been running regularly three to five times a week. I had not been meeting this exercise goal for nearly a year before this.
So if you have fitness goals that you want to meet, find a friend with similar goals and work together to encourage one another.
