Hello hello! How is your week going?
One of my FAVORITE things about being a Beachbody coach (and one of the things that sets it apart from its competitors) is the accountability!
I have been so blessed to be able to workout with my teammates from all over the country at different places around the country!
SO, why do I love having workout buddies built into my job??
Well, here are a few reasons:
1. You are more likely to achieve your goals with a workout buddy – even just a bi-weekly phone call about working out can help people stick to it 78% more, according to this Stanford study!
2. Umm… It’s more fun! Did we look unhappy in those pics? NOPE! Endorphins: CHECK! And the more, the merrier – let’s make it a party!
We interrupt this list for a dance party:
3. Support & motivation! I have been doing challenge groups (online groups where people from across the world share their motivation, support, struggles, accountability) for about four years now, and let me tell you – when I see a mom of two in my groups post her second sweaty selfie mugshot, it reminds me of what valid excuses I have to work out (i.e. 0 excuses), and motivates me to do it! AND, if I ever need someone to push me, I just ask “for a little help from my friends,” and I have everyone cheering me on – or talking me off the ledge of eating something chocolate!
4. A little friendly competition never hurt, right? It helps!
5. Learning & variety – having a group of people all working out together all across the country helps me learn about new workouts! For example, I had no idea you could take hula hoop classes at the Y until one of my challengers told me. How much fun does that sound like??
