Exercising with Accountabilibuddy

March 4th, 2015 | No Comments | Posted in Lifestyle

UntitledBy Stephanie Egan, ProMedica Wildwood Athletic Club personal trainer

At ProMedica Wildwood Athletic Club, we understand the importance of integrating fitness into your life. However, we also understand how that can be a challenge. In the busy, ever-changing lives that we all lead, it’s hard to find time to fit one more thing into our schedules. We know we should make exercise a priority, but after a long day, going home and relaxing seems to trump going to the gym.

But what if you had something that made the choice to exercise a little easier? Something that pushed you to go the gym and get that workout done – maybe even turned exercise into something you enjoy and look forward to?

So, what is this secret something, you ask? It’s an accountabilibuddy – a person that makes you accountable for your fitness goals. It might be your personal trainer, your best friend, a gym buddy that works out at the same time as you, your spouse, etc. An accountabilibuddy is that person that shares your goals and wants to see you succeed. You help motivate each other.

About six months ago, I started partner training my clients Lisa and Pam. Training these two wonderful ladies is truly one of the highlights of my week. They always show up ready to work, they push each other and they always make each other (and myself) laugh. Together, the three of us have created quite the bond. So much so that they have given me the nickname Stephasaurus Rex, but that story’s for an article all on its own.

Since we began partner training, neither of them have missed a session. Each one of them knows the other person is counting on her to show up. “Partner training makes me very accountable. I find that I push myself harder when I work out with Pam,” says Lisa.

According to Pam, training with Lisa makes working out more fun and makes the time go by faster. She says, “I end up working out longer with Lisa than I would on my own.”

When you use the accountabilibuddy system, both you and your buddy benefit. You push each other to work hard, which in turn leads to better results. It can also make your workouts more enjoyable, which means you will be more likely to do them.
