The Buddy System Works

Are you motivated by the encouragement of other people? If you’re looking for a way to take your fitness to the next level, you might just enjoy doing 10 more crunches with a buddy, or tackling that hill with someone cheering you on. Whether it’s a trainer, your spouse or a workout pal, having someone feed you motivational “You can do it!” messages during your workouts can actually help you push yourself and have more fun. So, pair up for a more powerful (and pleasurable) way of getting fit. It really works! Dr. Mike Roizen found that the people who made their RealAge younger almost invariably had a health do-over buddy. If you don’t have one of your own and weight loss is your goal, you might want to a friend, co-worker or family member.
