Working out with others increases your motivation to go workout, and the intensity of your workout once you’re there. A recent study by the Society of Behavioral Medicine found working out with a partner improved results while doing aerobic exercise. Another study found 95% of people completed a weight loss program if they had a friend doing it with them, compared to only 76% who did it on their own.
Being around others can bring energy and added competitiveness, causing you to get more out of your workout. The one caveat is to try and find a workout partner or exercise group who are motivated to push themselves to get better. A lackadaisical group will only bring down your energy and make it harder to reach goals.
