Convince a friend to run with you!
How do you convince your friend to train with you for the Strong Viking Run?
Strong Viking is a brother run. It’s more fun to do the course together with someone. If you apply these six tips, you will certainly succeed in getting your friends from the couch to train with you for Strong Viking in 2019. When you spend your time and energy improving your condition, the results are often visible to everyone. Your improved self-confidence and your tighter body will stand out. But for your friends and family who prefer to stay indoors, these reasons may not be enough and you need to use more convincing tactics to get them going.
1. Get them at their weakest moment
If you and your friends are at a party and you’ve got a bit tipsy, you can suggest continuing the party the next day with a training to get fresh again. Your friends may not immediately be happy with the idea of waking up early after a night out, but once they wake up and are ready to go, they will thank you. You can also use the New Year’s Eve party to set a new goal together for 2019.
2. It’s all about timing
Immediately after a workout, it is the perfect time to use the adrenaline and talk to a friend about how good and strong you feel. For example, if you’ve been running a lap together or you’ve been to a bootcamp session, the energy boost you have is very natural. Your buddy will feel the positive energy you radiate. It’s the perfect time to commit together to participate in a Strong Viking run.
3. Motivate each other and strengthen your bond
So often we help a friend to remain motivated to train, but when it comes to ourselves this is often not the case. With a buddy you both have to. If you both start at the same level, you can join forces. And how cool is that, to do something completely new together so you have to leave your comfort zone completely!?
4. Considering new sportswear
There is nothing more motivating than cool new sportswear. One of the best ways to inspire a friend to get active is by having them shop for new sportswear and shoes. Once they’ve found the perfect OCR outfit, they’ll be even more excited to train with you.
5. Considering a delicious Sports Nutrition
With Herbalife Nutrition’s sports formula you combine a pleasant training evaluation with good nutrients and optimal recovery. Herbalfe24 Rebuild Strength is a recovery drink with carbohydrates, proteins (including BCAAs) and vitamins & minerals.
Whenever you put the refreshing sports drink CR7 Drive in your water bottle, during your workout, then the workout is complete.
Everyone is motivated by different factors. As you become healthier and fitter after walking a Strong Viking, it’s normal that you want to shout the news from the rooftops and that you want your friends and family to experience the same thing. If you really want to help people in your life become healthier and fitter, then you need to keep your thoughts and opinions positive. Nobody wants to hear that their current lifestyle is bad. Use a calm approach to convince a friend to join the world’s coolest OCR.
If you continue to lead by example, your friends will eventually go along with you.
