Getting to the gym or Crossfit box might be easy enough, but it's what you do with your time once you're there that really matters! Countless studies have shown that having a swolemate or workout buddy so to speak can increase your odds of achieving your goal significantly. So what do you need to do to find your workout swolemate?
Find Your Workout Swolemate
For those of you who don't know, let's review the definition of swolemate. Basically it is a slang term that refers to a workout buddy or someone that you go to the gym with. Obviously it's a play on the word soulmate.
A recent 2017 study by the University of Alabama found that people are 3 times more likely to stick to a workout routine or go to the gym when they have another person or partner to hold them accountable. This isn't anything new however, there are numerous findings that confirm this. It makes sense. If you've ever had a swolemate you know that if you're having a bad day or feel unmotivated at the gym, you're probably not going to bail because you want your partner to still get their workout in. It's easy to go to the gym or Crossfit box and waste half your time texting on your phone or distracting yourself.
So the question remains, how to find your workout swolemate. This is interesting. We've all seen the annoying social butterfly at the gym. You know the person that seems to be chatting away more than they are sweating. They probably are NOT the ideal person to strike up a conversation with. One of the easiest way is to maybe ask someone how to do an exercise that you've seen them do. People are always flattered when they feel that they can help someone out. Maybe they have a cool pair of GymPaws workout gloves on. You'd be surprised how many customers tell us that people have come up to them in the gym to ask where or what they are using!
