So I've got a friend of mine, a really good friend....who is a massive couch potato. He works a million hours a week, eats like shit and spends his time at home watching TV and playing on his iphone (at the same time).
I know the saying "You can't save everyone" and I know it's true. But I'd like to try at least; to get my buddy into better physical health. He used to play hockey with me (and was a lot better) so I know he's ok with being active.
What are some suggestions that you'd say are good for trying to get him into the gym with me to train?
I've already asked him a bunch of times in passing. He usually calls me around 3 on fridays and asks: "What are you doing tonight?" to which I reply "I'm hitting the gym around 5, wanna come?" It's always no; either with or without a reason/excuse why.
I can even get him a free week! Hm.
Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
