I regularly workout on my own but on the occasions I workout with a training partner I find my motivation increases, my output increases and perhaps most importantly, my overall enjoyment increases.
Jason Ferruggia (a world-renowned S&C coach) has always said that having a good training partner is one of the best things you can do to enhance your rate of progress.
With this in mind, how do you go about finding a training partner, if indeed you workout with a partner at all?
Is it possible to walk into a gym and find people there?
Is it possible to workout with friends? (Especially if you're there to exercise seriously, rather than catch up and chat)
What experience do you have on finding a training partner?
