1. You do not lose a workout so easily
When we train alone and beats that lazy to get up early to go to the gym or lack will to give that jog after work, have to be very strong motivation to find and not to yield to the desire to escape from the workout.
However, when we know that someone will be waiting for us in the gym to work together with us, or that the person will not train if we are not together with her, commitment and consideration with the person in question can support to serve us not to abandon the exercise scheduled for the day.
"When you know that a friend is waiting for you or that will not do anything without you, it is hard to miss," said PhD and professor of psychology at the University of Santa Clara, in the United States, Thomas Plante. Plante has conducted several studies related to the importance of having a partner in the practice of physical exercises.

A survey conducted by Michigan State University found that women who were workout partners, even in a virtual mode in fitness communities that connect practitioners could ride for a period twice longer than those who trained alone.

In four weeks, she could have eliminated 492 calories more than the amount lost if he had exercised in the company of a friend.
