Motivation

It can be hard for many people to find the motivation to stick to an exercise regime, but research suggests that working out with a group of friends can provide many benefits and the required motivation to get training and keep at it. If you are having trouble trying to stay fit, then grab a few friends and start working out together.

Accountability

It's a well-known fact that you are much more likely to turn up to a training session if you have arranged to meet friends there. Go on your own, and you will probably easily find a hundred excuses not to make it, but if you have made a confirmed arrangement with friends, you are held accountable for showing up.

Competitiveness

Once at your training session, working out with friends can give you a real confidence and motivation boost. You can help encourage each other with your workouts, learn from each other and push each other that little bit further. There is often an element of competitiveness when doing activities with groups of friends, so a training session is one great way to compete in a friendly way against each other and test your own limits.

Longer Training Sessions

You are more likely to learn something new when training with a group of friends. This could be a new exercise technique that they might be able to teach you or a new type of sport or activity that can be done as part of a group.


Sharing Ideas

Post-Workout

If there is a group of you, the chances are that you are more likely to encourage each other to eat a healthy post-workout snack or meal. Your friends can provide the confidence boost you might need to get you started with something new.


Social Side

The social aspect that comes from training with friends makes the experience a lot more enjoyable and helps to ensure that you stay motivated. Research has shown that exercising with friends is better for your brain. As well as being better for your mind, exercising in groups is thought to be less stressful than on your own, especially if you are starting a new regime, as you have a familiar support group to help spur you on.


Recovery Time

One of the many benefits associated with training with friends involves the catch-up or recovery time you might have planned after the session. If you have had a great workout, then you might decide to reward yourself with a spot of light lunch together. You will feel more motivated about your sessions if you know that you can have a social get-together at the end of it.
