It really helps a lot in the gym to have a good gym buddy to work out with. If you can find someone who shares the same interest in whatever type of program you are doing (ex. Weight lifting, conditioning, bodybuilding, strongman, running..) then you can probably get better results. It will help you if you have someone pushing you harder the whole time.
I remember back in high school I didn’t think I would ever get in shape and I felt miserable because I hadn’t competed in any athletics so my junior year I ran cross country. I went from not being able to run a mile to running 3 miles in under 20 minutes. I had also gotten in great shape, cutting down from 200 lbs to 180 lbs.
I found that being on that cross country team with runners who were better than me and were my friends motivated me. I use that same tactic today just with a different goal, gaining lean muscle. I am currently bulking and went from 220 to 230 lbs these past few months, thanks in part to having a good gym partner to keep me on track.
So if you want the extra push or motivation you can have, find a gym buddy or boyfriend/girlfriend who has the same fitness goals as you and workout together.
I can’t remember where I heard this but just remember that “those who train together, gain together.”
