friends with benefits


the title is not referring to the justin timberlake movie that was almost the exact same as the “no strings attached” ashton kutcher movie. i’m talking about a friend to help get your body looking good. if it leads to other kinds of benefits, well good for you!

these past two weeks one of my best friends and i have been working out together almost every day. it has made my workouts more entertaining and more accountable. no way in hell am i going to be the lazy friend.

keys to finding a good workout buddy include finding someone who has a positive attitude. a previous workout buddy constantly complained about things making me question if i was enjoying myself or not.

also, find someone with a similar schedule. my friend and i sit down on sundays to plan our workout “dates” for the week.

another key to having a great workout buddy is to have someone to make you laugh. you’ll burn extra calories!

food- keep a food journal and exchange it weekly with your buddy, knowing they will see it will make you more aware of what you eat if you know someone will see!

fitness- try these exercises out with your new workout bud!

fun- sit back and relax after all that working out and go check out a movie!


About collegegirlfit

I am a senior strategic communications student at Oklahoma State University. I will be a fifth-year senior next year. Yay, victory lap! I am a member of the OSU pom squad, which is what inspired my blog. We have to wear shirts exposing our core on a weekly basis, so not being fit is not an option. I hope to share my experiences with making the transition from a high school girl with a metabolism that let me eat anything under the sun, to a college student that actually has to watch what I eat and drink.
