Are you a good influence?

Our parents were right. The people we surround ourselves with have a direct impact on our personal lifestyle choices. So, are your friends and family a positive influence on your life? Are you a good influence on those around you? Do you have a training partner that you see on a regular basis?

Most of us are more likely to workout if we make a commitment to meet someone and workout together, it makes us accountable and means letting someone down if we flake out.

Your training partner does not have to be your best friend, they just need to be someone that supports you and motivates you to be a better person. You also don’t need to spend additional money, you can find someone currently in your life.
