Do You Need a Partner? PDF Print E-mail
Lots of exercisers tend to do better working out by themselves.  This could be for several reasons.  It’s easier to find the time by yourself without worrying about someone else’s schedule.  Perhaps it’s just hard enough to motivate yourself without having to drag someone else along that may not be as excited about working out as you.

    On the other hand a partner for exercising can be vital.  Many people are more likely to exercise if someone is counting on them to show up.  Finding someone that you like to exercise with can be fun.  Friendly company helps change a stressful day into a highly motivated workout regimen!!  If you find some exercises boring, conversation with your partner may make the workout move along much quicker.  

    If you are looking for a partner, you do have some obstacles to overcome.  You’ll need to find a partner whose schedule is conducive to yours.  You and your partner may not be doing the same workout, but you should be able to help each other and push each other.  If you are very busy with work, perhaps you can find someone you work with at the office so you can discuss work issues while you exercise (that’s called multi-tasking!)  You may find that there are days you will need to work out on your own.  Don’t allow your partner missing a workout to give you the “out” to miss one yourself.  

    Whatever you decide to do, just make sure that you make exercise a part of you every day life!!

Cut the Salt!

I don’t know about you but I love salt.  I salt eggs, salads, chicken, toast, bagels, just about anything.  The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has just issued a warning that Americans...
