a focus on fitness isn't technically one of my intentions for 2013, but i do have a renewed energy about working out since the start of the new year. there are so many times that i mean to work out, but don't actually make it to the gym and even though i have a gym in my office building, i haven't been going very often.
after talking with some friends at work who felt the same way, i decided to create a "peer pressure work out club" or what i've dubbed PWOC. our PWOC includes people of all fitness levels, but we've committed to meeting at the same time every wednesday to head to the gym together. by blocking time in our calendars ahead of time, we can plan around the gym time, and by committing to the "club" together, we can encourage each other to go and to motivate one another once we're there.
if you want to jumpstart your workout routine, consider working out with a friend. there is strength in numbers! you'll be less likely to cancel on a friend and you can motivate each other once you're out on the trail or groovin' during zumba. hopefully it will be something you look forward to!
your PWOC can be a pal you meet with for yoga or a more formal group like a running club. it can even be a long distance friend that you e-mail/text/tweet with to keep each other on track. choose whatever works best for you, but set a time and date each week to work out. put it on the calendar and make it a priority.
as my mother says, "a priority is what gets done." now get 'er done!
