DO: Exercise with Friends Boredom is a common reason exercise programs fail. One way to overcome this problem is to exercise with friends. This provides a sense of camaraderie, a positive social experience and the ability to push each other to higher levels of performance. For this to work, you have to find an exercise both can enjoy at the appropriate fitness level. This may be a challenge, but it's worth the effort because you'll be more likely to develop a successful, long-term program. #instafriends #likeforlike #instadaily #instahealth #instagood #follow #love #instafollow
