Sometimes motivating yourself to hit the gym can be pretty tough. Exercising alone can be intimidating and it’s difficult to get yourself to actually do it and get the celebrity body you’ve been dreaming of. That’s why forming a work out squad is the perfect solution to all your problems. With a group of other people to work out with, you can’t simply bail out on going to the gym and will have others to help motivate you. Luckily, we have the fitness tips to help you find others to work out with.

Check out these fitness tips on how to form a work out squad:

1. Assemble your members: The first step to forming your squad is finding members to join it. Recruit friends of yours who enjoy working out and ask them to invite their friends. The more, the merrier! If you have a smaller circle of friends, post in local fitness Facebook groups that you are looking for some buddies to hit the gym with.

2. Choose your work out style: Now it’s time for you and your group to figure out what method of working out you want to do. Will it be yoga, Pilates, spinning, kickboxing or something else? Find out what your members are interested in doing and take it from there.

3. Make a plan: Once you know what style of working out you and your squad are going to do, set up a schedule of when you all are going to work out together and what your overall goals are. Signing up for a work out class that you have to pay in advance for can help make sure your members are actually going to show up to scheduled work out sessions.

4. Keep in touch: It’s important that as a group every person stays up to date with each other regarding when they’re hitting the gym. Create a texting group chat or Facebook group so all members of your squad can talk to each other and make plans.
