Episode 114 – Staying accountable in health and fitness


  • Do you find yourself flaking out on your own goals?
  • Whatever ever happened to the dream of being the lone wolf (or lion) and pursuing your ambitions in behind the scenes?
  • Was stealth mode destroying your #beastmode vibe?
  • Can’t get outta bed to exercise?

Maybe it’s time to rethink your game plan.

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, you need someone to be accountable to.

And the best solution to this is a fitness buddy!

Health and fitness buddies keep you accountable to your health and fitness dream goals!

They are going make sure that you’re always doing the extra efforts required to get in shape for that event or deadline.

That’s the dream situation, yeah!?

How do you optimise this partnership to stay accountable?

The best way to align is to meet up and set small continual goals together.

For example, you might start off with a conversation such as, “there is a sporting event coming up, let’s work together for this!”

Once in agreement, you can proceed to set weekly routines and healthy habits together to build up to that sporting event.


Read on below.



Of course, after the sporting event is successful – and the vibe between the two of you has been good all the way through the sporting campaign – this becomes the perfect opportunity to set a new health and fitness goal together.

So, for these guys in the video, once they finish their marathon race at their upcoming sports event, they can say,

“Right, that was a fantastic race! We did a really good time… what’s our next event? Where are we going next? What are we going for in terms of personal best times, distances, etc.?”

Then you begin again.

Set new goals. Implement the new plan. Restart the action.

Staying accountable is about finding a health and fitness buddy that can ultimately move in the same direction with you – and, of course, hit goal after goal after goal with you as well.

Nothing better than sharing winning moments with your fitness buddy!

No more lone wolf.
