When it comes getting in shape, enlisting a fitness buddy to support you won't just make the process easier—it will also makes it a lot more fun! Buddies are great for providing encouragement and motivation. The more you surround yourself with people who support your goals, the greater your chance of success will be. Your buddy can be part of that support system—someone who gives you a boost when you need it, and whom you can lend a hand to in return.
So how do you go about finding the right buddy for you? Talk with friends or family about your goals and see if any of them would like to join you. Put a post on facebook to see if anyone in the area wants to meet you for a class at the gym or a walk. There are also many meet-up groups devoted to fitness.
