Answers

Many people find working out in a group or with a partner to be a lot more fun — and motivating — than exercising alone. And a growing body of research backs this up; people of all ages are more active when they have higher levels of social support for physical activity. If you work out with a friend or a group, you’re more likely to stick with it, for a variety of reasons — you may find a group workout more enjoyable; and chances are, your fitness friends will offer encouragement as you make progress, whether it’s a high-five, a “you rock” or a shout-out on Facebook. In addition, you’re more likely to show up if someone is expecting you for a workout. Because fitness results depend on the frequency, intensity, duration, and type of exercise, individual outcomes vary — whether you work out alone or with others. But if your workout group or partner makes you more likely to exercise regularly, that alone means you’ll have better long-term results. Social support is a powerful tool for fitness success, especially for people new to exercise.
