- The Recess Guide to Finding a Fitness Accountability buddy this Holiday Season
By Lydia Hryshchyshyn
It is no secret the holiday season can throw you off your game when working to reach your latest fitness goals. With shorter days, endless holiday treats, and hectic schedules, it’s easy to put your exercise habit to the side.
At Recess, we’re committed to supporting your fitness goals. Connecting with your fitness community is easier than ever with Recess’s capabilities. We’ve created this short guide to help you find your fitness accountability partner so you can feel good about your fitness journey throughout the holidays.
Use social media to reach your people.
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, TikTok — there’s no end to the possibilities of people you can work with. Join a group, start a thread, or reach out to others in an online community who are like-minded and looking for fitness accountability partners. Find one friend or a fitness accountability tribe.
- The more the merrier! Recess has a new referral program! The more friends you find to workout with, the more friends you can refer to Recess for tokens and #swag.
Log into your account — Click Referrals — Add an email — Click “Refer Friend.” You both get 100 tokens.
Book a class and then invite your friends, you can hold each other accountable.
Find your Best Workout Pal.
Choosing a partner that will follow through is so important! Find someone who has a similar goal when it comes to working out through the holidays. Keep in mind personality too. Make sure your partner is “the dependable friend” and capable of giving you tough love when you need it.
Not choosing someone you know? Even better! It’s harder to let someone down you’ve teamed up with for the sole purpose of holding each other up.
Pro-tip: try to find an accountability partner that is slightly more advanced than you are. Not only will they motivate you to reach the next level, but they’ll be able to support you in learning new workout strategies!
Not in person? No worries.
Social distancing is the norm these days. Recess allows you to join your friend for a workout in real-time, from your own home. Be sure to get your after-workout-smoothie ready and incorporate other favorite fitness studio elements into your space before you begin!
Set up a calendar and hold each other to it.
Now that you’ve found your fitness accountability partner, it’s time to set some goals.
- Which days you will check-in with each other?
How many Recess classes will you attend?
On scheduled days, check-in with your partner at the beginning and end of the day. A morning or evening reminder makes it easier to follow through.
Make it a Competition.
Who doesn’t love some competition?
- Turn regular old BINGO into Fitness BINGO. The first person to complete all of their fitness squares wins a prize.
Make it a competition against yourself. If your goal is to workout 3 times a week, see if you can one-up yourself and sneak in an extra session.
Put $1.00 (or $5.00!) into a shared Venmo account every time you miss a class. The one who stays true to their goals gets the cash in the end!
Keeping it fun will make it easier to keep yourself motivated and reach your goals.
Endless workout possibilities.
You’ll never feel like you’re doing the same workout over and over with Recess’s endless classes. Customized recommendations picked just for you make it easier than ever to find the perfect class.
You’ll feel great.
Exercise activates dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. These hormones are responsible for feeling good. Considering 2020 is the year of all years — what better time than now to increase your happy hormones by getting on your mat, joining a Recess class, or putting your feet to the pavement?
More reasons to celebrate!
It’s a great feeling when you reach a goal. It feels even better when you help someone else with theirs! Through hard work, determination, and some tough love, you’ll both be on the road to achieving the best version of yourselves!
Get out there and seal the deal with your fitness accountability partner. Follow this guide to find your accountability tribe, set goals, and have fun!
