In the words of Mary Roma, “exercise loves company” which is why your gym membership may be more valuable as part of a team. Sure, solo workouts can help you relieve stress after a day or give you some alone time, but a workout buddy can help you in many ways. The best news of all? There’s no better time to convince your friends and family to join in on your healthy lifestyle with you. If you’re already a WoW member, your friends can join without a signup fee, and you both will each receive a $25 Amazon gift card. Start your holiday shopping early or treat yourself this holiday season. So call your friends and text your family that it’s finally time they join the gym with you! If they get defensive, you can just give them a few reasons off this list why it’s better to workout with a buddy.
Why You Benefit From Your Friend’s Gym Membership
- Commitment. It’s hard to commit time out of your day to go to the gym. Having a friend with a gym membership to meet you gives you a scheduled time to stick to, and someone waiting on you that you don’t want to disappoint. Even if you don’t complete your entire workout together, it is encouraging to meet up with someone depending on you.
- Familiarity. It can be daunting to start at a new gym and not know where anything can be found. With a friend, you’ll never have to walk into a group fitness class alone again! Being able to find specific machines and workout areas will have you feeling more comfortable getting started and more likely to return to the gym confidently to stay committed to your goals.
- Time. A healthy lifestyle can take a lot of time and planning to stick to your healthy habits. If you’re trying to reach a specific goal, meeting up with friends for dinner or cocktails can derail you. By encouraging your friends to also adapt a healthy lifestyle, you can consolidate your time catching up and working out together, no cheat meals included!
- Fun. You love meeting up with your friends, hitting the gym after work is a different story. By creating your gym time to be a fun time you meet up with your friends can make the experience the part of your day you look forward to rather than dread. This simple way to reframe the situation will make you more motivated to make time for your daily workout.
- Inspiration. Want your family to make healthier choices? There’s no better way than by setting an example. With the chance to purchase a gym membership for $0 down, now is a great time to add-on family members, and receive a $25 Amazon gift card!
