3 Reasons Why You Should Have a Workout Partner

Love is in the air at Crossfit Waterside, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there’s no better time to take your fitness journey to the next level with a workout partner! Whether you meet virtually or in-person, a workout partner can be a great addition to your health regimen. There are many benefits to having a friend join you on this journey, so check out these three reasons why you should have a workout partner! 


They Hold You Accountable

When it comes to staying on target, accountability and support is key! Sometimes it’s hard to get out of bed and go workout, even if it’s at your favorite CrossFit gym, but having someone to get you going can be a great help. Our trainers are the best at helping you feel motivated, encouraged and capable while you’re here – but if you ever need an extra hand to remind you how strong you are, or to help you say no to those pesky temptations, a workout partner is just a text away and will often know just what to say – because they’re in the same boat as you!


They Help Mix Up Your Exercise Routine

Partner workouts are a great way to add some variety to your exercises! From abs to arms and everything in between, there are so many great partner exercises that can give your exercise regimen a boost. Whether it’s in the gym or at home, people can often feel even more energized when they are working out with a partner. Plus, a little friendly competition can be fun!


They Help You Get Motivated 

Everyone needs a cheerleader from time to time! In addition to holding you accountable, workout partners are great for adding a fresh perspective and offering ideas that keep you moving. From encouraging you to reach new personal records to cheering you on even on your bad days, a workout partner can help motivate you to keep going, even when you don’t feel like it. They don’t let you give up! 


By highlighting accountability, variety and motivation, workout partners are great tools to reach your fitness journey goals! Here at Crossfit Waterside, we believe in learning about your goals and designing the perfect plan to help you achieve them – and sometimes adding a workout partner to the mix is a great way to do that. Whether it’s the new member you just met at the gym or a lifelong friend who always pushes you, a workout partner could be just what you need to reach new heights!
