Five reasons why working out with friends can be the best hack for your well-being goals:

When it comes to achieving your well-being goals, working out with friends at Active Nation can be one of the best hacks to help you stay on track. Not only is it a chance to socialise while you exercise, but it can also provide a sense of accountability, motivation, and support.

Here are five reasons why working out with friends can be the best hack for your well-being goals:


One of the biggest challenges of sticking to a workout routine is motivation. When you have a workout buddy, you’re less likely to skip a workout or cut it short. Your friend can provide the push you need to get to the gym or the pool, and once you’re there, you can motivate each other to push harder and achieve your goals.


Working out with friends can be a lot of fun. It’s a chance to catch up with each other while you exercise, and it can make the time go by faster. You can try new exercises or activities together, and there’s always the opportunity to laugh and have a good time while you sweat.


Friends can provide support and encouragement, which can be especially helpful when you’re struggling to achieve your goals. They can offer advice and tips based on their own experiences, and they can be there to listen when you need to vent. Knowing that you have someone in your corner can make all the difference when it comes to achieving your well-being goals.

Healthy competition

Working out with friends can also provide a healthy sense of competition, which can help you push yourself harder and achieve better results. Friendly challenges or competitions can be a great way to keep each other motivated and on track. For example, you might challenge each other to see who can swim the most laps in a week or who can do the most push-ups in a minute.


Working out with friends can also help you mix up your routine and try new exercises or activities that you might not have considered on your own. Your friends might introduce you to a new Les Mills workout class via Active Nation Anywhere or exercise that you end up loving, or you might try a new activity together, like strength training or cycling. This can keep your workouts interesting and challenging, and it can help you avoid boredom and burnout.


Overall, working out with friends can make exercise more enjoyable and help you stay on track with your personal well-being goals. It’s a chance to have fun, motivate each other, provide support, engage in healthy competition, and try new things at Active Nation. So why not grab a friend and hit the gym or the pool together? Your body and mind will thank you for it.
