A training partner

With the restriction of movement in place, I assumed that keeping fit wasn't going to be a problem. However, I haven't been consistent in the past few weeks. Now I understand why some people opt to have others who keep them in check. Do you usually train alone or with a group?

I prefer to set my regime rather than have someone else determine when I should keep fit. The downside is that inconsistency can set in. I think it depends on one's schedule, and a training partner can help in keeping someone in check.

Without finding motivation, achieving a consistent exercise routine can become a difficult task. Internal motivation comes and goes depending on the specific area of our lives in question. A training partner can help us achieve our goals by keeping us accountable.

For me, it depends on my training partner's availability. We both have a flexible schedule that depends on how busy the other party is. It is good to have a training partner that understands us and is willing to motivate us when the need arises.

A training partner can either be a motivation or distraction, depending on how you look at it. I believe in setting my training schedule and strictly being adherent unless there are unavoidable circumstances. Before seeking out a partner, you have to be accountable to yourself!

Keeping a regular exercising routine requires discipline, and a training partner doesn't necessarily fix the problem. This arrangement works for some people and doesn't work for others. It depends on the goals and targets set!

Finding a reliable training partner isn't always easy; neither is it the default option for anyone keen on fitness. I have seen people who remain accountable to themselves, and some prefer to exercise in groups.

Thank you all for your responses; at least now I have an idea of what to do, which is to psyche myself up and get back to routine. The idea of getting a partner should arise when ready to play my part and be accountable.

With the various restrictions in place, it would be advisable to train alone most of the time. However, training in a group can have a positive effect on each participant, especially when there are similar goals.

It is one of those things I consider subjective because different things work for all of us. Everyone should stick to what works for them, rather than going for what others call popular opinion.
