Start Your New Exercise Routine With A Partner









Motivation! Motivation! Motivation!  That is all you need to get your daily exercise routine down.  Sometimes it is hard to sweat solo, though.  Finding the right exercise partner can be tough but it is not impossible.  You need to find a friend or significant other that wants to push it to the limit like you do.









Sit down with them and make a list of fitness goals.  Remember, it is not about the pounds, it is about how happy with yourself you will feel in the end.  Goals like increasing the minutes in your cardio routine will not get you down as much as an unsuccessful goal of losing 20 pounds in one month would.  Be sure to cross off the goals that you have met.  Do not make new goals until the first ones are accomplished or you might get discouraged before you even start.  Both of you should meet these goals at the same time since you should be side by side helping each other with the exercises.






Make a calendar and set up a daily routine that will work for the both of you.  Start off with a small schedule that fits in cardio activity as well as muscle-toning activity.  Try 10 push-ups, 10 squats, 50 crunches, and walking for 30 minutes.  You should have these done within an hour.  Find a time that you can meet up and start your workout right away.  The more you lallygag around the less exercise you get in.










Let each other know if the other one is slacking.  It’s almost like a real relationship so communication is a key factor.  Neither of you should try to take on more than you can do or this system will not work out.  If one partner can run faster than the other then you guys have to meet in the middle.  Agree on a steady pace that both of you can work at.  This also goes for other exercise activities.  Always encourage each other to meet the goals that you have set.

Get out there, grab a partner, and build up your physical fitness one step at a time.  (No pun intended!)
