The BEST Way to Meet New Workout Buddies*


It's always better to exercise with a friend. Whether it's someone to spot for you while you bench press or offer moral support when you're training for that 5k, studies have shown that having a workout partner can significantly improve your performance.

That's why I love Pal, a free app for both iPhone and Android which lets you find like-minded people and make new friends by joining activities happening around your area or creating your own event.

You can browse the app for something you're interested in and join in on the conversation with others who are attending. Or post your own request and see who applies. It's completely safe as you can specify exactly who you want to be contacted by - just make sure, as with meeting anyone for the first time, you use common sense and do so in a public place and tell someone where you're going.

Pal isn't only for finding workout buddies, though. If you just want to meet new people for a coffee or organise a mums' day out, you can do all this and more. Whatever you're interested in, you're sure to find others who are too. It's easy to make new pals when you have the Pal app!

Want to know more? You can watch a short video about Pal here or visit the website to download the app and get started.

  1. With technology booming faster than ever, it makes sense to have apps for everything! I didn't know there is one for finding workout buddies too. I think that's pretty cool because you can socialize while getting inspired to work out even harder! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love this concept! I usually don’t workout with anyone because none of my friends workout so when we do get together to workout, I feel like they’re always holding me back when what I need is a push to work harder. I need some workout buddies that are in shape and are on my level!

    1. I have the same problem. Not all of my friends are into fitness or at the same level as me so I need people on my wavelength to push me harder and motivate me more instead of me always trying to get them motivated!

  3. Once your over 21 (*cough* 30) it’s so much harder to make new friends. I’ll definitely be having a look at this. I’d love to meet a new workout buddy! X

    1. I feel your pain as I'm also over 21 (*ahem* 30) and it's definitely harder to make new friends as an adult so apps like this are a godsend.

  4. I hadn't heard of this app before, so thanks for sharing! I find that getting motivated is the hardest part about working out, so having someone there with you always helps. :)

    1. You're welcome, glad you liked it. It's a pretty new app but I think it's going to get big as more and more people find it and see how useful it is.

  5. This is such a great idea for an app! It’s really hard to meet likeminded people after you leave college/uni so this app sounds perfect! I’ll definitely be checking it out, thanks for sharing Nic 💖 xx
