As you kick off 2023 with a list of new fitness and health goals for the upcoming year, you may be finding it difficult to stay consistent. Finding an accountability partner is one of the best ways to strengthen your commitment or get you back on track. You don’t have to go for your goals alone. Finding a solid support system will make 2023 your best fitness year yet. Here are some tips to get you started or help you stay on track!

Find an Accountability Partner

Accountability partners will look different for different people. For some, it may be important to have a tag-team gym buddy. This is someone who not only comes to the gym with you but will also follow your same workout routine. The benefit of this kind of partner is that you can not only keep each other consistent, but you can also encourage each other in real-time.

For others, it might make more sense to find a gym buddy who’s on a different routine. This works best for those who like having a consistent schedule while also having the freedom to do their own thing while working out.

Perhaps you have someone you can depend on for consistency who doesn’t live in your area. In this case, accountability partnering may be as simple as a call or text before or after a gym session.

Another easy way to keep accountable with a partner these days is to connect via smartwatch workout tracking. This technology allows you to quickly check in, encourage, and even compete with workout buddies near or far.
