If you are a teenager trying to lose weight, chances are you probably want to improve your physical appearance, your health, or both. And you may even be feeling a bit hopeless. Many teens are able to lose weight easily, while others find it very difficult to do so. This is because they are trying to do it all on their own.
Many teens find that doing their own weight loss programs in their homes is less embarrassing and easier. While it’s true that doing our workout and exercise on your own can be easier and less stressful. Don’t you think it is better to have a workout buddy or buddies? They not only provide companionship, but are also provide motivation and support.
Now, you may be wondering where you can find such buddy or buddies. You don’t have to look far actually. They can be your siblings or parents. Even if they don’t really fancy exercising, you can encourage them by using “spending quality time together” or “bonding” as the reasons. And if they are overweight themselves, you can encourage them to join you in your weight loss program together. This way you can show support and motivation for each other.
Other than your family members, you can also ask your best friends, buddies and roommates etc. Just remember, when approaching them, do not focus on their weight problem (if they have one), treat it as an invitation to spend quality time and have fun together. These exercises and workout don’t necessarily need to be in a gym, they can be talking long walks in a park, hiking and cycling. Something that you and your workout buddies enjoy doing together.
But, if you prefer going to the gym, look for one that offers discount for teens or group membership. Check out some of your local gyms, some do offer such programs. Some even go so far as to find a matching workout buddy or buddies for you.
When you have found your workout buddy, you may take turn choosing the types of exercises or workouts for the day. This will help make more fun for the both of you.
