Science shows that exercising with a friend can influence your work out!
WSNet's ACTIV8aFriend programme was recently given a reassuring boost. New research published in NATURE shows that friends have a major influence on a person’s exercise routine. The daily exercise patterns of over a million people who ran over 350 million km in a global social network of runners over a five year period found exercise is “socially contagious”. Specifically, men are influenced by both their male and female friends while only women influence other women. Interestingly, less active runners influence more active runners.
