Who should your workout buddy be?
Someone you like...
A good workout buddy has to be someone you actually like. Remember, a good workout buddy makes your workouts more fun, not less.

A fitness role model...
Ideally, you want your workout buddy to be about 40% fitter than you are – aim to get a person who is a fitness role model, yet at the same time their level of fitness seems achievable to you if you really worked for it.

Someone with a good attitude...
Positive and friendly, solution-focused and they keep working for better results. They also need to respect your time, be dependable, and if they’re spotting you, you need to be able to trust that they’ve got your back.

Someone who shares similar goals...
If you want to get to 14% body fat and they want to become a yoga expert, there’s a mismatch there – you need to share similar goals.

Someone with a similar schedule...
No brainer. If your schedules never coincide then it’s not going to work.
