Why Fitness is More Fun with a Friend!

One fool-proof way to keep yourself engaged with your workout is to pair up with someone! Just imagine…it’s 5.30am, it’s dark outside and there’s a light rain pattering against the window. All you want to do is stay lying in your comfortable bed, roll over and go back to sleep. But you’ve promised your friend you’ll join them at that new bootcamp this morning. You can’t let them down, can you? So up you get, get dressed and head out to meet your friend.

Now, imagine you didn’t have that friend you were going to meet, how much easier would it have been to just roll over and go back to sleep, just put it off until tomorrow. Tomorrow it’ll be so much easier. And then tomorrow never comes.

This is just one reason why your fitness journey is better and more successful with a friend. Here are four more reasons!

1. Accountability and Support from Others

Having accountability and a social support network are two of the biggest factors that lead to a successful lifestyle change. Knowing you have made a promise to someone else will make you much more likely to follow through and not bail on that bootcamp session. 

The importance of a social support network can easily be seen if you have ever taken part in one of our Clean & Lean Challenges. The support offered within the Facebook group, at the bootcamps and seminars is second to none. Having people around you who are going through the same experience is a great way to stay on track with whatever task you have set yourself.

2. Have Fun and Push Harder

The support doesn’t stop there. Once you are actually at a class, you now have a partner in crime to sweat with and suffer through anything that our coaches can throw at you. Bring a friend along and see how much harder you can push yourself. Working out together is a great way to strengthen any friendship, and gives you something new to discuss when going for that coffee afterwards.

3. Meet New People and Make New Fitness Friends!

Bootcamps are also a great way to make new friends. Get chatting to those sweating around you and before you know it, you might have some great new friends who share similar interests and you can push each other harder each session. 

Exercise is also so much more fun when you have friends to share the experience with! I know from personal experience that training alongside friends just adds another level of enjoyment to the whole experience and you end up working twice as hard with people around you than you would on your own.

4. Train Together, Stay Together

Why not bring your significant other along! Research shows that those who train together, really do stay together! Working out together can strengthen your relationship and enhance sexual attraction! If that’s not a good enough reason to get your partner along, I don’t know what is!

So what are you waiting for? Grab a friend you think would enjoy our UFIT Bootcamps, drop an email to bootcamps@ufit.com.sg and get them signed up to their first class! We hope to see you and your friends at a session soon!

MEET PUJA PAWA

ufit-bootcamps

Since the very first moment Puja joined UFIT Bootcamps she has been an absolute trooper. Getting up for the early 6am classes isn't always easy, but she's always given 100% - keep it up Puja!

"I had been looking for bootcamp classes for a while but couldn't find anything that fitted my work schedule. That was until I found UFIT Bootcamp East Coast sessions in the morning that fit in. I know 6am sounds early but it really is perfect. 

My goals were to lose weight... isn't that everyone's goal? My experience with UFIT Bootcamps is the community and your achievements within - getting up early was really difficult initially, but now I absolutely love it. My first few sessions were a little intimidating, but everyone is really friendly and motivating and that soon went away."

MEET SOFI BON FOSTER

Where do we start! Sofi is truly an inspiration, she's dedicated to achieving her goals and is always smiling no matter how hard the workout! Keep up the awesome work!

"One year ago my goal was to try one hour of outdoors activity as I was still struggling with Singapore heat. A super-fit-friend insisted on joining SHEFIT, so I gave in and joined. We cycled to the session, realised I couldn't do 5 burpees in a row and got completely exhausted by the end.

However, I kept coming back. There's something so special about the sessions, they’re dynamic, there’s an amazing community vibe, the coaches are so motivating that the love-hate relationship scale tips to love. So I continued with the sessions, became stronger - now I can do like 10 burpees. I’ve met some awesome people and have learnt a lot! Clean&Lean changed my perspective on nutrition, Bootcamps and MetCons taught me how to enhance my fitness level and RUNFIT got me faster. 

Overall, it has been an empowering experience and now an integral part of my everyday life. I feel really grateful for having found this community and I really thank now the friend who brought me."

MEET NINO & HONEY DESAPIO

Congratulations to our amazing duo Nino & Honey who have shown dedication with UFIT, thank you for sharing your journey with us! Keep up the good work and we love being part of your journey!

"We are very happy to be a part of UFIT. It has been such a great experience. 

My friend Rob from work told me I should check out the UFIT Bootcamp on Tanjong Beach. After one session I was hooked. I then dragged my wife out of bed on a Sunday to join the fun. From then on it has become an addiction! One session turned into 5 times a week participating in everything offered on Sentosa from Bex and Lawrence. When that was not enough to satisfy our addiction we started Personal Training with Aaron, Lawrence and Bex. My best days are when I get a bootcamp done in the morning and a Personal Training session in the evening. 

Our goal was pretty simple - get fit and improve overall heath. The results have been amazing. With 24 hour support from Lawrence and Aaron I lost 8 kilos in 18 days. Honey completed the Clean and Lean Challenge in May which totally changed our cooking habits. Honey also suffered from back issues which Bex has been able to solve with strength training during Personal Training. 

We are very thankful for the dedication of the UFIT team and the great community you have built."

MEET SHERI GREEN

Congratulations to the AMAZING Sheri Green - you deserve it!

"I started Bootcamps nearly a year ago, not long after I moved to Singapore. I spoke to Wendy about it and it sounded exactly what I was looking for. A way to get fit, meet new friendly people and loose the baby weight I was still carrying. I liked the idea of working out outside too. Something I could never do in Jakarta.

Not many people get to work out in such a beautiful setting with amazing, experienced and very dedicated trainers.

I am very lucky to have the support of the Bootcamp trainers and along with the clean and lean team I have lost the weight plus more and above all feel fitter and healthier. As an extra bonus have met some amazing people some of which have become life long friends. The UFIT community is one of a kind!"
