3 Big Benefits of Training with a Friend at Railroad CrossFit

Sitting On The Sidelines: 

It can be incredibly difficult to start something new. 

To change.

The want to change is great. But without action, all we are left with is our wants. 

After Coaching and owning a Health & Fitness business for over 12 years, 

Here are the 3 big reasons I know why people never start: 

  • Fear of Failure:

Many individuals hesitate to start their fitness journey because they fear they won’t succeed or live up to their own expectations. 

This fear of failure can be paralyzing, causing them to procrastinate or avoid taking action altogether. 

Whether it’s concerns about not being fit enough, not knowing where to begin, or worrying about judgment from others, the fear of failure can hold people back from even attempting to pursue their fitness goals.

  • Lack of Priority:

In today’s hectic world, it’s easy for people to allow health and fitness to take a back seat to other priorities. With work deadlines looming, family obligations to attend to, and social engagements filling up the calendar, many people find it challenging to prioritize their health and well-being. 

As a result, exercise and healthy eating often get pushed aside in favor of more immediate demands, leading individuals to neglect their physical fitness in the long run.

Whether it’s the allure of a Netflix binge after a long day at work or the convenience of fast food on busy evenings, the lack of priority given to health and fitness can have far-reaching consequences. 

Without a conscious effort to make time for exercise, meal planning, and self-care, individuals may find themselves stuck in a cycle of unhealthy habits and sedentary lifestyles, putting their long-term health at risk.

  • Uncertainty or Lack of Knowledge:

Starting a fitness journey can feel overwhelming, especially for those who are unfamiliar with exercise principles, nutrition guidelines, or proper workout techniques. 

Without a clear understanding of where to begin or how to structure a fitness plan, individuals may feel lost or uncertain about how to get started. 

This lack of knowledge can create a barrier to entry, preventing people from taking the first step towards improving their health and well-being.

Solution: Enter Semi Private Personal Training at Railroad:

At Railroad CrossFit, we believe that fitness is not just about individual achievement—it’s about the connections we forge, the shared support in the effort we expend, and the journeys of accomplishment we share together.

That’s why we’re passionate about the transformative power of training with a loved one, or someone you know or a new friend. 

Here are the 3 big benefits of partnering up for your fitness journey at Railroad: 

  • Accountability That Fuels Success:

Embarking on a fitness journey can sometimes feel daunting, with obstacles and distractions lurking around every corner. 

But when you have a workout buddy by your side, suddenly, accountability becomes a powerful motivator. 

Your friend becomes part of your anchor, your sounding board, and your partner in crime, ensuring that you show up, give it your all, and stay committed to your goals. 

Whether it’s meeting for early morning workouts or swapping healthy meal ideas, having someone to share the journey with makes staying accountable not just manageable, but enjoyable.

  • Motivation Through Mutual Support:

In the fast-paced world of fitness, motivation can be fleeting, and self-doubt can creep in when you least expect it. 

That’s where a training partner comes in as a beacon of encouragement and support. 

When you’re feeling tired or discouraged, you realize that you are not alone. That you have someone outside of your Coach who wants to see you win, improve and feel accomplished. 

Together, you’ll conquer challenges, improve your health and fitness at your own pace and inspire each other to keep pushing forward, even when the going gets tough. 

With a friend by your side, motivation becomes a shared experience, creating a positive feedback loop that propels you towards success.

  • Fun and Camaraderie That Enhance the Experience:

At Railroad CrossFit, we believe that fitness should be fun, engaging, and enjoyable. 

And what better way to inject some fun into your workouts than by training with someone else? A loved one, a friend or someone that you become friends with because you’re both on the path to bettering yourself. 

That’s the power in the room. 

You’re in a room, under the care, guidance and leadership of a Coach with someone else who also wants to see you thrive and achieve your goals. 

Whether you’re high-fiving after strength work, sharing a laugh during a challenging exercise, or teaming up for a friendly competition, training with a friend adds an element of camaraderie and excitement that transforms every session into an unforgettable experience. 

Plus, having someone to share your fitness journey with makes the entire process more enjoyable and fulfilling, turning workouts into opportunities for bonding, laughter, and shared triumphs.

And that’s a secret ingredient to building regular training and exercise into a daily habit. 

I like the sound of that!
