I’m going to state something obvious here: “Working out is hard.” Actually getting to the gym to perform said workout is even harder. Going to a gym or going on a run (or whatever you like to do) when no one is a.) expecting you or b.) counting on your showing up is even harder.
We’re lucky in that any given day at 2020, you’ll have a whole group of workout buddies waiting for you. If you’re looking to improve your summer routine, here are a couple of ways you can build your fitness community — aka “accountability partners” — to ensure your success:
- Make it an appointment. Some of our clients call it the most important appointment of the day. Others consider it their one hour of “me time” that so many of us often miss or easily push aside for other obligations.
- Make a friend. Commit to a time and a place and be there. If you have someone expecting you, you’re much more likely not to hit snooze and go. You can even have a virtual workout buddy: Commit via text/email by saying you’re running at 6 a.m. and the communicating results afterwards.
- Share a Goal. It opens you up and holds you accountable. Whether it’s with your spouse, a friend or family member, share what your goals are. Some are even so bold to share on social media. (However, I’m a little hesitant here as it may sound like bragging…you only want to tell people who care and are going to help support you ☺).
The more you build your Fitness Community, the more it will build YOU up and help YOU get to where YOU want to be!
Have an amazing summer!
