Looking to double your chances for fitness success, have more fun during your workouts, be more willing to create time and space for exercise, and be less likely to get stuck in a fitness funk? I mean who wouldn’t want that?! While this combo may sound way too good to be true, a fitness accountability partner can help to achieve all of these, and much more!

Who to Choose as your Accountability Partner?
Although accountability partners can provide so much benefit to your workout routine, finding the right partner for you is important. You want to make sure you mesh well with the person so that you associate your positive feelings towards that person with exercise, rather than negative ones. A few criteria you should consider…
You Actually Like the Person
Well this is probably obvious, but if you like the person you are working out with you will be more apt to want to workout with them! If it’s someone that is pulling teeth to spend time with, that will only detract from your motivation to workout.
Similar Goals/ Standards
This one can go a few ways. People who are at different levels can still workout with one another, and provide support for each other. This can work really well with like spouses who go to the gym together but complete their own workouts, or larger groups of people who are all at different fitness levels. However, for two people working out with one another who are at different levels, one may be pushed too hard, while the other isn’t working hard enough. Depending on the scenario you find yourself in, make sure everyone is being safe, as well as completing a workout that is good for the level that the individual is at.
