A huge motivating factor to workout for many people is having someone to do it with. A running buddy, a swim team, a personal trainer, these are all ways you can have someone cheering you on as you exercise and work towards your goals. But what if your schedule doesn’t quite match that of your buddy who runs? What if you’re not working on a team right now or have the money to put into a personal trainer? What if you actually like working out by yourself, but feel like you’re missing that motivating aspect of another person there with you?
