Do you want to raise the probability of meeting your fitness goals by up to 85%? Of course you do! And one of the most helpful ways to do so is to get workout partners or look into group training to hold yourself accountable.
Having a workout partner, workout group or accountability buddy gives you strong motivation to get moving. A study by Stanford University found that simply receiving check-in phone calls every two weeks increased the amount of exercise undergone by participants by 78% on average! Even having a personal trainer helping you strive for your fitness goals can motivate you to strive for more in your workout.
Below are a few options to consider when working to increase your fitness accountability.
First, you can find a coach or personal trainer . Having a personal training program will motivate you to really push to meet your fitness goals. In addition, a personal trainer can introduce new ideas to your fitness regimen, and stay enthusiastic for the both of you when the going gets tough.
Another option is to try out a few of the many fitness programs available at Fitness Connection. Every Fitness Connection offers a variety of classes suitable for people at every skill level, and every fitness class is led by an instructor who’s passionate about helping you and pushing your limits to reach your fullest potential. It can be really helpful to see people hustling alongside you. If you’re not sure what you should be doing, just ask.
Another helpful accountability practice is to simply bring a friend. Having someone with you – whether or not they are at your respective skill level – makes going to the gym not just healthy, but a whole lot of fun.
