Many of us are really trying hard to lose our weight and to obtain a healthy and a sexy body. Of course this can be achieved through regular exercise and through the right choice of food. It is quite boring for someone who is going to a gym alone to have his body weight reduce.

That is why we often see some people in a gym wherein they are together with their friends, special friends, or relatives. So the questions are, “why does working out with a friend increase weight loss?” and “what other benefits can we get from them?”.

Four Ways A Workout Buddy Helps You Increase Weight Loss:

  1. Motivation. During the days that you don’t want to work out, he/she is the one who will get you out the your door. Or vice-versa, if he/she is the one who the one who doesn’t one to work out, you will be the one to motivate her that you both need to go to the gym to have a weight loss.
  2. Your spotter! Many workout machines are dangerous when we use them. A work out buddy may serve as a spotter when you are bench pressing or other super hard extra strenuous weight loss activities. In this way, there is increase of safety. Another is that, as spotters, they can help you if you cannot exert more force in carrying a barbell or something because of muscle fatigue.
  3. It’s not boring with a friend. Working out may be a lonely activity especially when you are alone. A particular activity is an extensive cardio session. If you have a buddy that is just next to you and you can talk to him/her while you are doing this activity, for sure, time will just fly having not to notice it.
  4. A little healthy competition. Even though both of you are friends, doing the same activity brings up a competition with you two. Due to this friendly competition, both of you may be more enthusiastic in doing such activity. Seek a workout buddy that has a characteristic that is stronger than you or that has a fitter body than you. In this manner, you yourself will be challenged to losing weight faster and to be fitter than your workout buddy.

These are just four ways that you could lose more weight and have the added motivation. Not to mention, you are with a friend…isn’t it awesome to be bettering your health while spending quality time with a friend?
