Find a Workout Partner

Working out with a friend turns exercising into a social occasion. It makes exercising more fun, and you and your friend can encourage one another to try harder and to exercise regularly. Your friend can also be your teacher. He or she can tell you when you aren't lifting your leg high enough or stretching your arm far enough. (Chapter 3 gives you tips on working out in a group setting.)

A little healthy competition between workout partners is a good thing. As your partner encourages you, you'll want to try harder. Working with a partner also gives you the opportunity to be a teacher. You get to practice being kind and encouraging when you see he or she having a hard time.
