4 Reasons To Workout With A Friend

We all know that staying fit and exercising is important. We also know that staying motivated to work out on a regular basis can be hard. That’s why finding a good workout friend is one of the smartest fitness moves you can make. Working out with a friend can give you:

When you work out by yourself, it’s easy to lose motivation. A buddy will support you and cheer you on to help you reach your fitness goals.

It’s easy to bail on your own workout. But it’s much harder to ditch a workout when you know you’re going to be letting someone else down. Having a reliable workout friend will help you stick to your goals.

As humans, we like to be competitive—even if it’s simply good, friendly competition among friends. A friend will challenge and push you to do more than you might do alone.

Working out can be boring, especially during long cardio sessions. Having a friend to talk with while working out will make the time go by faster.

The Y is a special place for friends old and new. Friends who help you stay motivated, feel supported, and amplify the fun.

When you share the Y with your circle of friends and they join, you can earn: $50 Y credit!
And your friend will enjoy: Access to all 3 local Y facilities and a new workout friend!

To receive the $50 credit, a referral card will need to be completed in house at one of our three South Sound YMCA branch locations between April 1-April 30. Once joining fee is paid on the new membership, it may take up to 3 business days for the credit to appear on the current member’s account. Credit may be used for membership dues or program registration.
