To Sara: “I have such a hard time working out by myself. I get bored and quit after a few minutes, but when I work out with friends we’re talking and not working out that hard. What tips do you have to help me stay motivated?”
From Sara: “Working out with a friend or group is great. Friends/groups will keep you committed to working out because they’ll ask you where you were if you don’t show up–meaning they’ll hold you accountable. Also when you watch others working out, you’ll be more likely to workout harder. If you and your girlfriends aren’t getting much of a workout together, how bout challenging each other? For example: “Let’s walk up and down that set of stairs 5 times.” Or “Let’s jog for 3 minutes.” Keeping your workout fresh and fun will also challenge your muscles and give you great toning results.
