Consistent + Buddy = fit

Exercising is something of a mystery to lots of people. I’m not an expert but I don have an exercise routine that I actually enjoy and that I have seen results from. The two characteristics of my routine is consistency and the use of the buddy system. Working out with a close friend can be one of the most helpful things you will ever do for your personal fitness.

Some people think that they need to go to the gym with their spouse or a good friend in order to have the workout buddy system work for them. Unless your spouse or friend is actually going to the same gym as you in the first place it could be hard to manipulate them into adopting your exercise regimen for your benefit.

Better than waiting for your friends or your spouse to start coming to the gym with you, you can try finding your exercise buddy at the gym. This makes more sense because that person will already be going to the gym and probably wants to workout regularly.

Besides having an exercise buddy you will need to be consistent in your workouts. Consistency is second in workout importance only to actually getting out and exercising in the first place. There are lots of people who made huge lifestyle changes just by doing a little bit at a time.

Of course, if you can do a lot at a time and still be consistent then you will be even better off. If you really get into heavy training though you will eventually need to be a little less consistent so that you can give your body a break.
