Top Gym Buddy related questions
They can keep you motivated to do your workouts and eventually achieve your fitness goals, especially when you’re not feeling enthusiastic about working out. Not everyone can stay motivated all the time, and sometimes you need to feed off the energy of another person to work out - and this is when a gym buddy can be most helpful. They can also help you avoid wasting money by helping you maximise your long-term gym membership.
Working out with a partner, especially one who is more fit than you, can motivate you to work harder. One psychology expert has a theory that says people tend to compare themselves to others, which can open the door to self-evaluation and self-improvement. Even when you have no problems with working out alone, you’re more likely to become complacent and not push yourself hard enough to reach your goals - you may even slide back in your fitness progress.
A compatible workout schedule must be your priority. You can have the most likeable and motivational gym buddy, but it won’t work if you can’t meet at a mutually convenient time. Your gym buddy should also be optimistic, experienced and have achieved a degree of fitness. They should be reliable enough to meet you for your workouts and know how to provide motivation and honest feedback to help you improve.
It’s better to work out harder than prolong your workout sessions. More intense workouts can “shock” your muscles and make them larger in shorter sessions and in a shorter amount of time. At least one fitness icon used this principle to gain mass throughout his weightlifting career. If you feel you’ve hit a plateau, work to increase the intensity of your workouts; don’t resort to extending your workout sessions to maximise muscle gains.
Spotting someone is vital, especially when a person is stretching their ability to lift a weight to its limits. They need someone to monitor their performance and be ready to help them safely return the weights to their rack when they do reps to the point of failure. Spotters can boost a lifter with their presence alone or encourage them as they near the end of their reps and strain against their limits.
That depends on your workout goals. If you want to burn more fat and lose weight quicker, working out in the morning before breakfast is ideal. As you haven’t eaten before working out in the morning, your body will burn fat as fuel. If you want to build muscle, anytime between 1 to 4 p.m. is good, as you’ve had a couple of meals by then to fuel your workout and support muscle growth.

What do gym buddy services include?
Gym buddy services include all the necessary activities to find you a gym partner to accompany and assist you in your gym workouts. They can provide the motivation you need to help you push through your workouts and help you reach your fitness goals.
Discussing your goals
Before you hit the gym together, your gym buddy Tasker can sit down with you and talk about your workout schedule and fitness goals. They can plan with you that details when, where, how long and which types of workouts you can do together. If you don’t have a set fitness routine and don’t know which exercises to do, some Taskers can help you make a fitness program upon request.
Assisting in your workouts
When you and your fitness buddy for gym workouts hit the gym together, they can help you do each exercise. They can spot you as you lift heavy dumbbells or barbells and ensure you maintain the proper form. Your gym buddy can also help you do new exercises and help you operate any exercise machines or equipment that you may not know how to use.
They can help you execute each exercise, so you don’t hurt your back, injure yourself from overexertion and minimise muscle soreness. Note that you may have to return the favour and spot your gym buddy when they do their exercises too. While you’re at the gym, how about hiring someone to look after your precious cat or pooch?
Helping you improve
When you lack the motivation to keep to your workout schedule, your fitness buddy can provide you with the encouragement you need. If you find yourself getting bored with your workouts, some Taskers can add excitement by facilitating a mini-competition and challenging you to do better than them. Should you find yourself on a plateau when it comes to your workout, your Tasker can add weight in small increments when you lift.
They can also challenge you to do more reps or sets when appropriate to help you get out of your workout rut. Why not help your workouts along and add more protein to your diet? You can also get the right ingredients for your meals or smoothies to help feed your muscles and bulk up with more protein and less fat!
Tracking your progress
Some Taskers can help you track your progress and monitor the number of exercises and sets you do weekly or daily. They can show you how far you’ve come in your fitness program to help you determine whether you need to add more weight or intensity to your workouts.
Some Taskers can give you feedback and may also suggest what you can do to improve if necessary. This process can continue until you are both satisfied and you’ve reached the goals you set out for yourself at the beginning of the service.
