Most people dread training without a workout buddy, but hitting the gym on your own can be surprisingly fun if you do it right. Flying solo can be amazing and here are five tips that will help you have the time of your life working out on your own.
Do Something Fun
Committing to a fitness routine that you don’t like is a huge motivation killer. You’re working out on your own anyway so march to the beat of your own drum and focus on doing things that you actually enjoy.
Try New Things
Even once you find a workout that you love, you might struggle to commit to it long-term, so be ready to try new things from time to time.
Short & Sweet
One of the best things about working out on your own is that you don’t have to keep up with anyone. If you’re short on time, you can work out whenever you can squeeze in 10 or 15 minutes of free time.
If you don’t have a workout buddy, your workout playlist will be your best friend. Make sure to make it as motivational as possible and opt for songs that make you feel like you could conquer the world.
An occasional change of environment can make your solo workouts super fun. If working out at home doesn’t do it for you, consider hitting the gym or training in your yard or outdoors once the weather gets better.
