Have you ever relied upon another person to help keep you motivated to work out?
Has anyone ever depended upon you to push them when they felt like giving up on their fitness goals?
If so, you know how important it is to have a workout buddy.
The technical term for this type of person is called an Accountability Partner.
This is one of the most important relationships that you can have to assist you with accomplishing your weight loss goals.
The beautiful thing about this type of relationship is that your accountability partner can push you past your self-imposed limits.
This allows you to make rapid physical and mental progress.
Sometimes when we don’t feel like working out, a mental roadblock is the cause and we may not be aware of it, thinking that we are physically fatigued.
This is where your accountability partner comes in and pushes you past that mental barrier.
Have you noticed in the past when you haven’t felt like working out but did so anyway, you ended up having the best workouts?
All because you pushed through your mental barriers, which is what your accountability partner can help you to do.
Your accountability partner can also make for a great company in which you could talk about life in general.
You could give each other advice that could help solve your everyday problems.
It’s totally up to you how much of your life you’d like to share with your accountability partner because it all comes down to trust.
We could go on and on about the benefits of having a workout buddy, but instead, let us share with you what we believe are the best questions you must answer before choosing an accountability partner.
Please be honest in your answers because choosing the wrong person could cost you a lot of wasted time and frustration, especially if they aren’t reliable.
Here are the questions…
Q1: Does this person genuinely care about me?
Q2: Does this person always look out for my best interest?
Q3: Is this person supportive?
Q4: Do I trust this person?
Q5: Will this person be honest with me?
Q6: Will this person hold me accountable without being rude or disrespectful?
Now that you know the right questions to ask yourself, you must be certain that you will be all of those things to your potential accountability partner.
In other words, if your potential accountability partners were to ask themselves those same questions about you, would they be able to answer Yes to all of them?
You see, this is a reciprocal relationship, in which you go to give and not just receive.
Giving to the other person is the foundation of a relationship.
We don’t mean to preach but never go to a relationship to take, because that breaks the trust and bond.
Let us get off of our soapbox now.
