Why You Should Have a Workout Partner

So About That Workout Buddy —  Love 'Em or Leave 'Em?

You can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em . . . We're talking about your workout buddy! In many cases, workout partners make exercising all the more fun, while you both push each other to work harder and get into the competitive spirit. But sometimes a buddy can be downright distracting, wanting to talk more than tone. There are several benefits to having a gym buddy like spotting and motivation: after all, there are no excuses when someone else is counting on you. But if you turn to the gym for a bit of "me time" or you can't seem to find the right match, having a partner can seem daunting. So tell us, do you like to fly solo at the gym or get down to business with a buddy?
