(UNDATED) - If you resolve to get in shape for the new year, a workout partner may help you reach your goal.
Tony Maloney with the National Institute of Fitness and Sport in Indianapolis, says having someone to work out with holds you accountable and can keep you focused on your goals.
Maloney says a team or buddy workout is also a popular fitness trend in personal training. It can be affective and also affordable to share the cost of a personal trainer.
If you go it alone, or with a buddy, exercise should be viewed as fun. Find an activity you enjoy. Maloney says doing it just because you have to--will most certainly fail you.
