Do you wish your friends would join you for a workout? Or maybe your friends have said they want to check out your gym but haven’t yet? Are you struggling to get your friend to come with you? It could be a coworker, neighbor or even a relative. Bottom line is, they likely won’t come join you. But I want to give you some tips that might help you get them to join you for a workout.
- Talk about the positive feelings you get from working out.
- Tell them about the amazing people you get to meet and train with.
- Let them know they can go at their own pace.
- Encourage them to try something new.
- Let them know how excited you get.
Here are some things that I would personally stay away from:
- It was awful.
- I’m so sore.
- I’m not sure I can make it another day.
- I’m nervous to go.
We all have so many feelings and emotions when it comes to working out. How sore you get and how we express the way we feel about working out. You might be a person that gets nervous before you head to the gym or even start your workout. All of these emotions are yours. You have to be mindful of how you express them when trying to encourage a friend to come join you. The same feelings that keep you coming back for more, might be the exact feelings keeping your friend or family member from joining you. I am not saying lie to them. What I am saying is that you should choose your words, feelings, and emotions you express to them wisely. Always encourage the ones around you to try and improve their health. Good luck.
