Matsuoka Gou/Kou - Free!
I only finally checked out Free! recently as a result of my enjoyment of 50% Off (the YouTube abridged series which I highly recommend), and I'm quite enjoying as well! Kou is Rin's sister and manager of the Iwatobi Swim Club. She's basically the show's resident fangirl, but she basically acts as the club's coach before they actually get a coach, so she draws up training regiments and pushes the boys to get better. I think she'd be a fun and motivational workout buddy, plus I do have a little bit of history as a swimmer! Alternatively, Makoto might be a nice choice, so long as I don't get distracted by those muscles! *swoon*
I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to physical activity, so it was hard to find the delicate balance of someone who would push me, but not kill me! Here's a handful of considerations that fell a bit to either side.
Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail
Erza's always looking for ways great workouts! Like Gou, I think she'd be fun and motivational to work out with, but she might come on a bit too strong for me!
Tenten - Naruto
I love Tenten, and I think she tends to be a bit underrated! She's super determined and all about her ninja tools! Idk if we'd be compatible, but if so, I think she'd be fun to workout with!
"Yatori" - Noragami
Remember that one OVA where Hiyori had one of her narcoleptic episodes and Yato took over her body? I will be referring to the resulting entity as "Yatori," and I think he/she would be a blast to workout with!
Saitama - One Punch Man
I couldn't not mention Saitama! I think he'd be super motivational, but even more overwhelming that Erza!
Hanzo Urushihara aka Lucifer - Devil is a Part-Timer
Okay, so this is more of a joke mention, but, I mean, why work out when you can just hang out with internet-san!
As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined!
Until next time!
