Making a new friend for any activity can be tough, especially when you’re looking for a fitness friend who will keep you motivated to keep working out and losing weight.
Going to Starbucks probably won’t work, and interrupting someone on the treadmill at the gym isn’t the best way either.
Because of this, we have compiled the best ways to meet friends online, whether that is for a fitness friend or to find another person to discuss diets with; that’s up to you.
It’s a great resource if you want to take the energy of going out and start actively meeting new fitness friends. Attending a meetup is generally like attending an event with a whole bunch of people who have the same interests as you. So it will start with a speaker, or in this case, it might even be a boot camp where everyone is working out. After the event is over, you can start talking with everyone and potentially make some new friends.
You probably have some friends who are in the same position as you looking for a fitness partner to help keep them motivated long-term, and most people are more comfortable trying to go through their friends first, so this is a great way to kick off the new you.
