When it comes to watching your weight, fitness is critical. And studies have found that social support can help you get and stay active. One reason may be due to the fact that people often find it more fun to work out with others. Try a social stroll today with a friend, your spouse or kids, or even a coworker. If you enjoy it, you may want to consider making it a weekly event.

Make sure to talk with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine.
