Friends are useful for all kinds of reasons—borrowing notes, stealing French fries, justifying Netflix binges. They can also be the kick you need to get (and stay) fit.

Working out with a friend means accountability, and research suggests that accountability is key if you’re looking to build a workout habit for real.

What’s better than working out with a friend? Making them part of your workout, of course. So grab someone you know, or even someone you don’t, and join Chris Winfield, our trainer, for a workout that works for two.
