When it comes to losing weight and staying motivated to exercise, a workout buddy is key. Studies show that people are more successful with their diet and exercise program if they have support. An exercise buddy not only provides support, but keeps boredom away and makes time pass quickly as you workout. When you're scheduled to meet a friend for exercise, you'll avoid those excuses about why you're too tired or busy. You'll also push yourself a little more with a partner. Pick a buddy who you want to spend time with, who will motivate you and is committed to working out. It is definitely worth the effort to find an exercise buddy!
