It’s hard getting the motivation to work out, especially during the cold, winter months. However, If you choose the right friend to workout with, you’ll reach your fitness goals a lot more easily! Here are 4 reasons from fitdaily.com why you should recruit a fitness partner to help you get moving:

1. Time Flies When You’re Having Fun–if you go to the gym with a friend, your mind won’t be focused so much on the clock, but on the social aspect of your workout instead.

2. You’ll Be Held Accountable–it’s easy to skip a workout if the only person you’re letting down is yourself. However, if you establish a set routine with a friend, you’ll feel more obligated to follow through with your workout plans.

3. You’ll Always Have Someone to Cheer You On–working out with a friend will provide you with the encouragement needed when things get tough. This will motivate you to keep working toward your fitness goals.

4. It’s More Fun to Celebrate Success with a Friend–your workout partner understands all the effort you’ve made, so there’s no one better to celebrate your progress with!
