We all sometimes struggle with going to the gym, but a recent article in Men’s Fitness highlights the advantages to working out with a buddy! The article discusses six main reasons for working out with a friend: motivation, fun workouts, working out harder, cheaper workouts, workout assistance and healthier friends!
Having a friend come to workout with you is great motivation, and to make it easier to get your friends to join you at PEAK, we have recently started a refer-a-friend promotion! If you are an existing member, you can bring a new friend to PEAK and you will get $20 off your next month’s membership! So the more friends you bring, the more money you’ll have leftover for happy hour later!
Here are some ways to be accountable with friends:
- Walk or carpool together to PEAK
Talk on Sunday and schedule your classes together for the week
Make plans for after your session (dinner, grab a juice or coffee,or just time to chat)
Text each other before class as a reminder and motivator
Make a friendly bet: whether it’s who rows the fastest, has the most reps or weight/inches lost
