    Hey guys,

    It seems that workout buds can be hard to find for reasons that include finding someone at the same gym, someone you get along with, coordinating schedules 3,4,5x a week, etc. So, I just thought maybe making some online buds that would want to keep each other motivated would be a good substitute. I think of it as an online workout buddy. But,no big commitment! We'd use twitter.com as a way to blog each other & keep each other motivated. Here's how the blogs might look:

    Hey so & so, what's up? How's your workout going? This week checked my body fat, lost 1%. I'm so happy!
    or
    Hey so & so, I've gained 10 lbs. Any thoughts how I could lose it.
    or
    Hey so & so, any ideas how i can add more muscle to my bod?
    or
    Hey so & so, I feel kinda lazy & only went to the gym once this week. I could use a kick in the butt.
    or.....the list goes on. I think you guys get the idea.

    If anyone interested in having an online workout buddy, just do the following at the end of this post. Again, no big commitment! Blogging 1x per day, week, month, year...whatever you can do.

    This is just a way for us to help each other to reach our fitness goals & to maintain them.

    Good luck with your workout guys!

    Best,
    Stephen

    Just go to twitter.com & create a new a/c (it’s free & takes a minute or two to do). Then scroll to the bottom of your homepage & click the search button. Type in my username: sabsinla . You'll see my blogs. Click on my username sabsinla, then click follow (this link is under my picture), that’s it. Then, just sign on to twitter.com, click on my profile under the heading: People you’re following. You can see my blogs, blogs of others in the group & submit blogs.

    Buffhunk64 saidJust hope you don't ask me for a spot! Might take me a while to get there.

    I feel really lucky to have had the same workout buddy since last August. We work around each other's schedule and we workout sometimes at a time that is not necessarily convenient for one of us, but we make the sacrifice for the other. It's pretty cool. Original poster should make some friends at the gym he goes to and see who is usually there at the same time. Just talk and see who he gets along with.


    Hey, thanks for the advice! I might just give it a try. icon_smile.gif You're lucky to have a workout bud. Hope you guys get great results!
