What makes a great workout partner?

exercise motivation Sep 10, 2016

Some people know I wake up early and am eager to workout, but may not know why. Let me introduce you to the world’s best workout partner.

It’s this lady here...

Mary Ann Randall is 75 and going strong. I want to be her when I grow up.

She started as a client of mine almost about 20 years ago. She has been through many a spinning class, Fitball class, TRX HIIT class, and grueling personal training sessions with me - but at some point years ago, she became my workout partner and I LOVE every minute of it.

She has shown me what it means to be a successful workout partner with these attributes:

  • Reliable - She shows up 4 times a week unless she can't get out of her driveway because of snow.
  • Supportive - She is ALWAYS for me. No matter what the topic she's in my corner...ALWAYS!!!
  • Encouraging - She makes me ALWAYS want to show up. NOTHING beats a workout with her (even sleep).
  • Interesting - She is the only one I can workout with 4 days a week and still can't wait to have lunch (and wine) with so we can talk some more.
  • Flexible - She works with my schedule. Eg. - TEXT MESSAGE: I have to take Sophia to school tomorrow, can you meet at 6:45? ANSWER: NO PROBLEM.
  • Grateful - We appreciate every single thing about our workouts: the weather, the scenery, the people we see, the cute dogs on the path, the conversation, that fact that we can both move our bodies, and most of all each other.

If there is one thing I wish everyone on this planet had it is a workout partner like my Mary Ann. She is like my mother, my sister, and my best friend all rolled into one and I appreciate her more than she can imagine!
