It's easier than going it alone

(HealthDay News) -- If you're toning up or striving to lose a few extra pounds, working out with a partner or friend can make the job easier and more fun.

The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions:

  • Have a heart-to-heart conversation with a loved one or friend, explaining your goals and asking for help.
  • Find someone to encourage you in all areas of your life, to applaud your efforts and to motivate you.
  • Join a support group if you need support outside your circle of friends and loved ones.
  • If someone is standing in your way, discuss your plan and be prepared to handle any challenges.
