|Who could it be?|
However, people are not perfect. Inevitably at some point during your relationship, your workout buddy will get sick, tired, hungover, or all of the above. So while I LOVE a good gym partner, I also understand the limits of the relationship. (now if only I could apply this lesson to men...)
So what if I told you I know of a workout buddy who would NEVER cancel on you. Who would always be happy to get your butt out the door rain or shine, hot or cold, hungover or tired. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it is almost is.
|Best. Workout Buddies. Ever.|
These buddies come with their own set of issues even though they are consistent gym partners. So PLEASE don't adopt on a whim. They require a lot of time, energy, and money. BUT the love they give back is tenfold and you'll always have a friend ready for an outdoor calorie burning adventure, even when you're not.
If that's not a win-win, I don't know what is.
UPDATE: Well looky here! Was doing some dog related research on the ol' internet and it seems I'm in good company in my thinking of dog as fitness partner. Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) says she used her dog as a fitness trainer when her doctor told her she should drop a few pounds. Not so Fat Greek Wedding anymore!
