Age is no excuse to stop working out. In fact, if anything, you should be spending more time and energy on keeping your muscles strong. Fewer work responsibilities means more time for yourself, you can dedicate more time to your gym routine than you could before. We understand going to the gym can be hard, which is why we suggest that you buddy up with a friend or even a stranger at your nearby gym. The mutual fitness goals and challenges that both of you face will let you bond and exercise together and will help both of you stay focused and committed to a healthy routine.
Life partners, Gene and Jim, partner-up at the gym and share their commitment to take responsibility of their health with a main goal to protect their independence as they age. As a retired physician and a retired CPA, they realized they had begun to slow down. Yard work became more of a challenge and their physiques began to change. They began to get concerned about new appearing aches and pains, not uncommon to the aging process, and they did not want to become house bound as they enjoy yearly trips to the beach.
Together, they hired Coach Deese and began a weekly plan motivating one another to “give their best of life, the rest of life” to stay strong and healthy.
They have achieved many of their fitness goals in a short period of time. No more back aches, beautiful seasonal gardens, stories of their vacations together, and changes in strength they never conceived could happen. A true partnership with a successful outcome. They continue to want more exercise challenges to gain strength, balance, and flexibility, as they now look at fitness as part of a lifelong journey and not just a short term New Year resolution.
More than half of gym members quit their memberships within a year. Most people are just not motivated enough to show up. A gym partner will provide accountability and keep you hyped so you won’t want to skip your workout. Having a partner encourages more exercise on average then on your own.
Tired of doing the same exercise routines repeatedly every day? There are a bunch of fun exercises that you cannot try out unless you have an exercise partner. New ideas that you and your partner can do together, keeping each other engaged, sweating and motivated throughout so exercise is not a chore.
Having a gym buddy can make your workouts fun, lets you try new exercises together, and helps you achieve your fitness goals faster without backing out. Don’t have a partner? No worries, your trainer will help you establish new partnerships along your pathway to good health.
