1. You'll Work Harder. 

If you're finding it tough to get motivation working out by yourself, you're not alone. Working out in groups actually leads to better workouts! A study in the journal Obesity showed better results for participants who exercised in social setting with people they perceived to be in good shape.  So find the fittest friend you have and start planning some workouts today immediately! 

2.  Your Workout Won't Feel Like a workout

We've all been there, watching the seconds tick by on a treadmill waiting for our workout to be over.  Well, when you work out with a friend that just won't happen! The old saying "time flies when you're having fun", applies to exercising with your besties.   Whether it's going for a run, taking a spin class side by side, or turning on your favorite yoga video in the basement, trust me when I say your workout will go by faster and easier when you have a friend right next to you. 

3.  You're Able to Be Social Without Killing Your Diet

All too often we feel stressed for time. How do I go to work, take care of my family, exercise, eat right and still have a social life? The answer is as easy as it seems, find ways to combine as many of those activities as you can!  All too often social events revolve around eating, drinking and that isn't always the best thing if you're trying to lose weight. That's why exercising with your friends is the way to go. You can do something that is good for both of you, and get fit at the same time.  Make social hour your fitness hour as often as you can.
