Swimming is a fantastic way to maintain your fitness regime but sometimes it’s challenging to maintain a commitment to the activity. That’s why partnering up with a mate is a beneficial method to keep yourself accountable, challenge yourself and socialise at the same time. Here are our top 5 reasons why you should swim with a mate.
- Keep yourself accountable.
Making plans with your friend to train makes it more difficult to cancel as someone else is also relying on your presence.
- Challenge yourself.
Training with someone else will keep you pushing each other’s limits so you can be better. Having someone to motivate you can make all the difference as well.
- Build your relationship further.
Exercising with someone you don’t know that well provides you with the opportunity to build a new friendship. Choosing your swimming partner with someone you haven’t seen in a while also allows you time to reconnect.
- Learn new swimming techniques and drills
If you swim with someone else you may learn new methods of training the sport!
- It’s more fun
Socialising before, after and during breaks allows you to be distracted from your workout for a moment of relief. You can also compete against each other to make the activity more fun!
